Relive Our Boston Public Market Experience!

  Minus the Moo popped up in the Boston Public Market from July 17- 30th. Our goal was to share the lactose free love and test out some new flavors (Confetti, Chocolate Candy Crisp, Strawberries and Sweet Cream, and Black Raspberry) exclusive to the pop-up. We were glad that people from different parts of the world, young and old, enjoyed our ice cream. All in all the pop-up was a success  and we hope we can pop-up again! If you didn't get to try our ice cream before we left, or you still want to be able to get pints, find us at Whole Foods and Roche Bros in New England or click here to shop online.

Katy's Story

 The story of Minus the Moo would be incomplete without looking back on how lactose intolerance has affected my life, first negatively and now positively. In addition to serving you delicious, lactose-free ice cream, we at Minus the Moo hope to empower you to never let dietary restrictions get in the way of living your best life. Growing up, ice cream was a HUGE part of my life. Some of my happiest childhood memories are linked to the joy of sharing ice cream with family and friends. Turning down ice cream was just something that didn’t happen, so you can imagine my devastation when I began to realize that the thing I loved so much was responsible for making me...
