The Boston Ice Cream Company’s staff scoops all-natural Emack and Bolio's ice cream into cones, onto cakes, and across its ice-cream pizzas. The story of Emack and Bolio's dates back to 1970s Boston, when a music lawyer wanted to create a space for musicians to hang out on late nights after shows. Like the first brave settler to farm Wisconsin, the small shop spawned an ice-cream empire from modest origins.
This Beantown tradition arrived in Livingston with a rotating roster of flavors that includes almond coconut bar, lemon sorbet, and key-lime pie. The shop's confection makers also use Emack and Bolio's ice cream to create custom cakes with housemade buttercream. They even prepare an ice-cream pizza, which has a brownie crust, vanilla-bean ice cream, fudge swirls, raspberry-filled chocolates, and a marshmallow topping. Their nonfrozen treats include handmade chocolates and cookies, as well as jellybeans, swedish fish, and enough sweets to decorate the set of a Candy Land movie.
