All of our ice cream products are handmade in small batches on location with many of the same recipes we have been using for generations.
We make Fresh Native Fruit Flavors and Sundae Toppings with seasonal fresh fruit from local farms. Look for Fresh Native Strawberry mid-June, Fresh Native Red Raspberry in July and August, Fresh Native Blackberry and Fresh Native Black Raspberry in July, Fresh Native Peach and Fresh Maine Blueberry in August, Fresh Native Baked Apple and Fresh Native Spiced Pumpkin in September.
We have a rotating menu of Vegan flavors that are dairy free. Flavors include Coffee, Strawberry, Mint Chip, Chocolate Chip, and others.
Do you make all your own ice cream?
Yes! All of our products, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and vegan, are made right on site in small batches with ingredients added by hand. The ice cream is literally made in the Benson home.
Do you take online or phone orders?
As pandemic restrictions have lifted, we have been able to resume our all of our normal walk-up service. We are no longer taking online orders and we do not take pre-order by phone or other means. Just walk up to the window and order cones, sundaes, frappes, to-go, and bulk sizes of your choice!
What flavors do you have in stock today?
We try to keep our regular ice cream and frozen yogurt flavors in stock, but all of them can run out from time to time. We are currently trying new Vegan flavors so the Vegan menu is constantly changing. To find out what flavor we are trying this week, give us a call during business hours. Our Fresh Fruit Flavors are made only when fruit is available and sell quickly so they sell out frequently and even if we told you it was in stock, it may not be a short time later. We do not take pre-orders or save flavors for customers other than bulk event orders. Everything is sold on site on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Are your products allergy safe?
All of our products are homemade in the same machine, which includes dairy, gluten, tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, and soy as well as other ingredients. For slight allergies, intolerances, and dietary restrictions, please let your server know and they will do their best to make sure your order does not have ingredients that you can not eat, but in severe allergy cases, our products are not recommended. If you need a full list of ingredients for any flavor or product, please let us know.
What is the base of your vegan flavors?
Our vegan flavors are made with a vegan ice cream base that contains both oat flour (gluten free) and coconut ingredients. All of our products are homemade in the same machine (see above).
Is your ice cream gluten free?
Our ice cream, frozen yogurt, and vegan ice cream bases are gluten free. Some flavors have gluten add-ins such a brownies and grapenuts. All of our products are homemade in the same machine (see above).
What forms of payment do you accept?
We take all major forms of pay, including Discover, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
Do you sell gift certificates?
We do sell gift certificates at the stand in any amount or for a specific item as well as online (see "Gift Cards" above).
Do you ship ice cream?
Unfortunately, we are not able to ship or distribute ice cream other than at our location. You can only get Benson's Home Made Ice Cream at our location.
