Mini Melts Looks And Tastes Different

That’s why we say, "Taste it and love it". Of course not all ice creams are created equal;
we use an ultra premium base mix, and search out the highest quality flavors from around the globe. Mini Melts offers something wholly different.


The New Zealand Mission

Just like all other kiwis, we love ice cream which is why it has been our mission to bring the superior quality and flavour of Mini Melts to New Zealand taste buds. The concept of cryogenically frozen ice cream (the use of extremely cold temperatures to freeze ice cream) is an excellent way to lock in the flavor of the ice cream in a truly unique way. First, it is well known the faster a product can be frozen, the better it will taste. Using liquid nitrogen we flash freeze our ice cream in split seconds. Secondly, normal ice cream must have air whipped into it to enable it to be scooped. Mini Melts has no air whipped into it. And, finally, the exciting shapes produced by this process are mouth wateringly irresistible. So we thought it was high time New Zealanders got a taste of Mini Melts, and Mini Melts got a taste of home! Though Mini Melts began in the US, our Mini Melts are created just across the ditch using 100% natural products. Though our dream to spread the word of Mini Melts across the land of Aotearoa is still just beginning, as more and more kiwis taste and love it, that dream is slowly coming true!

A Dream Of An Ice Cream

Mini Melts is a super premium, pure ice cream made in a truly unique way using leading edge technology and the finest quality ingredients.


The exciting shapes of ice cream this produces are fun and easy to eat, allowing customers to appreciate the great taste.


Mini Melts is manufactured using cryogenics. Cryogenics uses liquid Nitrogen to instantaneously freeze Mini Melts to less than -187 °C (-304 °F). This is close to the coldest temperature that is achievable on earth. This rapid freezing process enables Mini Melts to "lock in" the flavour.


Apart from that normal ice cream has to have air whipped into it to make it scoopable. Mini Melts has no air whipped into it. It’s simply top quality ice cream and nothing but!


Through the use of the finest quality ingredients and a milk fat content of 16%. Mini Melts is truly one of the highest quality ice cream products in the world.


Experience the wonderfully cold sensation direct from our -40 degrees specialized serving freezers.
