Since starting this business I’ve had the opportunity to meet a ton of amazon people who share my passion for creating a more sustainable planet. One of those folks is Danny Seo of the Danny Seo show. His crew was incredibly gracious in editing out my not-ready-for-TV mishaps - and the end segment is great! You can check out the full episode on NBC or HULU!
With every new year, resolutions for health are top of mind. Ice cream may not sound synonymous with health, but we firmly believe that fresh, local, natural ingredients (that you can pronounce) are critical to wellness.
One such ingredient is Gramen Farm's dairy, which we use exclusively in our frozen custards. The video above showcases their commitment to pure, natural food, which we align with wholeheartedly. The cherry on top? We get to support another small business right in our backyard.
Did you know every scoop of Honeychild's is making our world a better place? We're committed to the community, sustainability, and the environment. As members of 1% for the Planet, we've dedicated one percent of our proceeds to the Galveston Bay Foundation.
Honeychild's select this organization because they preserve, protect, and enhance the natural resources of the Galveston Bay. They are fantastic at engaging the greater Houston area—our home—with their mission through events, research, education, and workshops.
1% for the Planet connects businesses, consumers, and nonprofits, empowering all of us to drive big, positive change. In an uncertain world, these connections allow you and me to do more for our big blue planet than we can alone.
We got to spend National Dessert Day in the studio with Click2Houston and even whipped up a fresh batch of frozen custard! Check out the video for the scoop on Honeychild's Sweet Creams, our flavors, and why ice cream is our dessert of choice.
March 19th marks the vernal equinox and beginning of the spring season. Leave it to the folks at Galveston's Own Farmers Market to celebrate the moving of the sun with a pun party. Join them this Saturday at Smooth Tony's for yard games and a highly skilled egg balancing competition. Ticket and event details are available on their website.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
It's an ice cream cake,
made just for you.
Meyer lemon frozen custard with lemon curd between layers of moist strawberry cake topped with a champagne buttercream and lemon zest frosting cake.
Make it yours (or hers or his) for Valentine's Day!
But don't worry! Contact us and we'll hook you up for next time.
Honeychild's recently had the pleasure of meeting Molly from A Piece of Toast, one of our favorite blogs. As a fellow ice cream lover and lady in a sister-business, we had a blast small talking over custards (read: lots of double dipping).
So, who is Honeychild? What is a frozen custard? What is it like working with sisters? What are our favorite flavors? Get the full scoop on her blog.
One of our favorite bloggers, Sugar & Cloth, whipped up one of her infamous ice cream shots using our toasted marshmallow frozen custard. If you're feeling crafty, we've released the recipe so you can do it yourself. Super-binding legal disclaimer: any blow torch injuries ain't our problem.
"The gourd of my eye this year is la pumpkin, not only for it's perfect timeliness from Halloween, but mainly because it's delicious, and there are so many Houston delicacies that incorporate it. Take Buffalo Bayou Brewery and Honeychild's Sweet Creams. One makes a pumpkin ice cream, one makes a pumpkin beer. Enter, the Pumpkin beer float, not to be served to anyone you don't want to get a little tipsy." - The Shoe Diet

Eight chefs. Eight local farmers. One incredible dinner on November 8 that supports Urban Harvest’s Youth Education Program. Honeychild's will offer up one-of-a-kind fare for Sunday Supper at Sparrow.
This multi-course dinner will feature a bounty of ingredients sourced from select responsible local farms and prepared by some of Houston’s top chefs. Urban Harvest’s Youth Education Program, the beneficiary of the event, explores healthy nutrition, food systems, native habitats and ecosystems through garden activities implemented in Houston-area schools and community centers. Tickets from $175. Your taste buds will thank you (and so will Urban Harvest)! http://bit.ly/harvestsupper
We had a darn good idea, yall! With Rosh Hashanah just around the corner, we decided to whip up a limited-edition french toast challah, apple and honey frozen custard.
Rosh Hashanah is an important holiday, marking the Jewish New Year. One of the common greetings you'll hear during the holiday—which falls this year between sunset on September 13 and nightfall on September 15—is “shanah tovah,” meaning "happy new year" in Hebrew. We also introduced flavors of apples and honey because they're traditional to eat during Rosh Hashanah.
Houstonia Magazine wrote up an incredibly kind article about what we're doing. Read the full article here. Get some exclusively at Belden's in Meyerland, Urban Harvest, and Galveston's Own Farmers Market.
We joined Aces of Taste, Sugar & Cloth, TOUT SUITE and Maple & Love for a one-of-a-kind sweet and savory dinner at Sugar and Cloth Studio. Thank you to everyone who attended. Pictures don't do it justice!

There's nothin' we love more than Houston and food. So, we were delighted to hear our name come on Houston Matters among Katharine Shilcutt, Features & Dining Editor at Houstonia; Eric Sandler, Food Editor of CultureMap Houston; and David Leftwich, Executive Editor at Sugar and Rice Magazine.
Catch us at about the nine minute mark! Tune in for more at noon on News 88.7FM.
We're pumped for this week's Spiked by the Scoop competition, an "adult frozen treat throwdown," will be held at Yellow Rose Distilling. We love our salted maple bourbon frozen custard creation and can't wait to share it! The event will include ice cream samples, cocktail tastings, entertainment and a raffle - all benefiting Small Steps Nurturing Center.
"The Spiked by the Scoop fundraiser will include booze-laced ice creams from some of Houston's top chefs and ice cream makers. Flavors include, from left, Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream from Danny Trace of Brennan's of Houston; Peaches Foster Ice Cream with Caramelized Pecans from Tallent Ricca of Ricca; and Salted Maple and Bourbon Pecan Frozen Custard from Kathleen Morgan of Honeychild's Sweet Creams." - Greg Morago, Houston Chronicle
