Ice Cream

Larkin Food Center has 28 flavors of hand dipped ice cream and soft serve.  Our ice cream is available year round, so you can get your ice cream fix in the dead of winter. Along with ice cream, we offer shakes, malts and sundaes.

Most ice cream producers cut corners on cost by reducing dairy fat content in ice cream, they also use other fillers to make up the taste and add air to pump up their ice cream. We only use quality ice cream providers that use real ingredients and real butter fat.

Ashby’s Sterling
Ashby’s make their ice cream with the creamiest 14% butterfat ice cream mix, then add only the best ingredients; whole nuts, real fruit chunks, rich chocolate, fudge, caramel, and 100% pure vanilla.

Since 1894, it has been Hershey’s pledge to produce the very best products by using only the best ingredients.  Hershey’s uses less air (called overrun) than most other ice cream companies, producing a richer and better tasting ice cream! They also use the best ingredients from fresh cream to fresh fruits and nuts.

Hudsonville Ice Cream started when a group of local farmers who were looking for a better way to sell their dairy products banded together to form a new co-op. They chose a location on Chicago Drive in Hudsonville, Michigan, for this new venture, and in 1895 the Hudsonville Creamery was born.  Hudsonville knows the fresher the ingredient, the better the taste for you. They also make sure that their thick fudge, butter fudge, pecans, cakes and peanuts are fresh and bursting with flavor.

Shakes and Malts

Mix in any hand dipped ice cream flavor with Smith Dairy milk and you have one delicious shake. Or we can make a shake out of our Smith Dairy soft serve ice cream, which has a rich full flavor with no artificial sweetener. We offer chocolate, vanilla and twist. 

Looking for a little more flavor in your shake, try our old fashioned malt.  We add a malt mix to our shakes to give it a malty flavor with thickness that is going to require a spoon.
