March 30, 2012… Our lives changed forever when our daughter, who was 3y/o at that time, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. A year later, she was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Both are chronic medical conditions. Both are autoimmune diseases wherein her body attacks her immune system. Though they are not curable at this time, both are easily manageable.
As a family, we love to travel, try new places and of course we love to eat. But with our daughter’s chronic medical condition, it has always been a challenge, a struggle, to find Gluten free products from main entrees, snacks, dessert and of course Ice Cream. So, when life gives you lemon, turn it into lemonade!
Here we are, the first ever, Type 1 Diabetes Friendly, Gluten-free friendly Ice Cream Shop in the area! We will serve the community the way we serve our daughter, including the love and care. We will be serving gluten free ice cream, gluten free products, with a dedicated gluten free preparation area and equipment. We will provide the proper carb count needed for Type 1 Diabetics upon request, to properly cover their insulin correction, as they enjoy our Ice Cream. This will be a place like home for our Celiac and T1D community. We are not just selling ice cream. We are raising awareness with these medical conditions too!
Welcome to 4C Creamery. Care, Celebrate, Celiac and Carb counting!
The Hershey Creamery Company was founded in 1894 by Jacob Hershey and his four brothers: Isaac, Paris, Ephraim and Eli Hershey (no relation to Milton S. Hershey of the Hershey Company).
Since 1894, Hershey's® has strived to "guarantee quality products, provide excellent service, establish competitive prices and provide a true value to the customer."
Hershey's Ice Cream makes all of our mixes from fresh, wholesome ingredients. Fresh cream and fresh condensed milk is delivered to our plant on a daily basis! To ensure our quality, we use the highest quality of cocoa available anywhere. Our fruit flavors are made from hand-picked, fresh-frozen fruits. We use high grades of almonds, pecans and walnuts. We are also one of the few manufacturers that roasts nuts in our own plant and we guarantee freshness and quality!
That's why it's premium. That's why it's real! And that's why you get "Real Ingredients. Real Ice Cream. Real Smiles.'" with every ice cream product we make.
