Shubert’s Ice Cream & Candies are still hand made using many local ingredients: the butter, cream, honey and nuts are purchased from family-owned farms surrounding Chico."We make our own" says it all for this Chico institution! Begun in 1938 when Leonard C. Shubert left Montana, at age 54, to find a location in California for an ice cream shop.
The seasonal favorites, such as boysenberry sundaes in the spring, watermelon sherbet in the summer, and pumpkin ice cream in the fall, contain locally grown produce to give them that distinctive homemade taste.
In the spring of 2008, as Shubert’s celebrated 70 years of success, appreciative customers sent letters of praise to ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Those letters, subsequent voting and tasting resulted in Shubert’s being named one of the two best ice cream stores in the nation.That’s what Shubert’s is really all about: tradition, high quality, and distinctive homemade taste. Come in to the shop and sample a bit of Chico history!
