Frequently Asked Questions
We think our delicious ice cream is pretty self explanatory, but if you have a burning question to ask, by all means please contact us!
Here's some questions we get all the time, click to expand:
- Q: I am diabetic – can I eat this ice cream?
We are not physicians, and while many diabetics CAN safely consume our products, it is best to advise the customer to take the nutritional information to his/her physician and ask them. Many doctors have different treatment options and beliefs on what diabetics should/can eat.
- Q: How many Weight Watcher points is your ice cream?
Each four-ounce serving is approximately 2 WW points. They provide a sliding scale that measures points by the number of grams of fiber, sugar and fat. Though they recently changed their point calculation system to Points PLUS, our ice cream STILL has the following point values:
- Childs = 2 point
- Small = 4 points
- Medium = 6 points
- Large = 8 points
- Quart = 16 points
- Q: How do you come up with the flavors?
Some flavors are provided by the flavoring company. Others are combinations we’ve come up with, like Chocolate Macaroon = Coconut + White Cake Batter.
- Q: Do you sell ice cream cakes?
Yes, we always have cakes available in the freezer. We can decorate them when they are purchased. We can make custom flavored cakes but they must be ordered and paid for with two weekdays notice.
- Small (7”) Cake = serves 6-8 people
- Large (10”) Cake = serves 8-12 people
- Q: Is D’Lites the same as “Tasti Delites”?
No, Tasti Delites is a franchised operation that adds lactase to their product. Eww.
- Q: Are the calories the same for the flavors?
Yes. All the flavors have the same number of calories.
- Q: Does the ice cream have any artificial sweeteners?
No, unlike any other low calorie ice cream or yogurt soft-serve shop in Gainesville.
- Q: What do you use to sweeten your ice cream?
Real sugar and a little corn syrup. This is not, however, the “high-fructose corn syrup” that is causing concern.

Our product is ice cream made from skim milk and real sugar. Did we mention it’s delicious?
