I Scream…You Scream…We All Scream for Ice Cream…


Karl Black’s Olympic Mountain Ice Cream, Washington’s Best!
Includes some Chef Howie/Seastar Proprietary Blends and Flavors!
Karl Black has been making ice cream and sorbet for Chef Howie’s Restaurants long before there were Chef Howie restaurants. In the late 1980’s chef had Karl make ice cream for Scott’s Bar & Grill, Triples,
and Palisade! Of course Karl’s amazing creations came with Chef Howie to Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar, John Howie Steak and the Beardslee Public House!
“Karl Black makes the best craft ice creams and sorbets found any whereon the planet! But that is only part of the reason why I serve his treats in my restaurants. Carl, his wife Bev and their kids are some of
the most genuine, friendly & caring people you’ll meet, I love the treats but I love the people even more!”
So when I called Carl last week to see how things were going…I had not placed an order for two months!

I came up with the idea to sell Carl’s Olympic Mountain Ice Cream to you! As much as I want to keep my business open I want to keep all my favorite farmers, fishermen, cattle ranchers, cheese mongers and of
course ice cream makers in business too! Your order will help me with this goal, and you’ll never enjoy anything as much, well maybe not everything, our foods pretty good too!


Lifelong Washingtonians, Karl and Bev Black have created a legacy which reflects their shared love of the environment, sweet desserts, dedication to family, and love for one another.
Meeting over 45 years ago in the hippy heydays at a friendly potluck, knowing glances over Bev’s chocolate-chip cookies led to love at first sight; Karl was hooked at first bite. The two set to homesteading
in the Skokomish Valley, hand-building their rustic dream cabin on fifteen acres of raw mountain valley bliss while operating a small local greenhouse business. The valley was birthplace and home to their three children, Trail, Alana and Joel. In 1984 while sampling
a delicious refreshing Cantaloupe Sorbet, they shared an exciting new business vision with their three young children, the decision to transition from horticulture to foods production was intimidating and
demanded much soul searching. Karl and Bev knew it would be no simple task to achieve their dream.
They soon opened “Heavenly Gelato” in Lacey, WA and the family immersed themselves in the task of learning everything they could about making the best ice cream and sorbets. The business ran for two
years before Karl and Bev realized the audience at their small mall storefront could not support their
dreams of dozens of gourmet flavors. Still believing strongly in the product, they began marketing their desserts wholesale to restaurants in the Puget Sound area and found a foodie niche hungry for custom
crafted gourmet sorbets and ice cream. Karl and Bev changed the business name to “Olympic Mountain
Ice Cream,” applied their knowledge of small batch gelato crafting, and began selling their original line of super-premium ice creams. Over thirty years later, the children are all grown, with grandchildren who play
in the yard of Karl and Bev’s family home and ice cream factory? Karl and Bev still hold the same incredibly high standards for the ice cream they produce, forever convinced that ice cream should be an
indulgence worth savoring.
At Olympic Mountain Ice Cream, only the freshest ingredients are used in their ice creams and sorbets.
They purchase all of our berries and stone fruit at their peak of ripeness from Pacific Northwest growers
and nearly all of the herbs used are grown on the family farm. They won’t settle for anything but the finest
ingredients and strive to always, make the best possible ice cream and sorbets.

The ice cream comes in 1-gallon and 1 ½ gallon containers, priced from $28-$38, don’t forget to bring your cooler, we will fill it with ice to ensure the treats make it home frozen.
