BOLD FLAVORS, CRAFTED WITH DECADENT CURIOSITY.
100% PLANT-BASED AND GLUTEN-FREE
For years, as a dairy free and gluten free person, I have felt ignored and straight up disrespected by the lack of available desserts at most places. If I had to deal with one more server sulking back from the kitchen with a boring-ass sorbet as my only option, while my friends enjoyed a plethora of dazzling, decadent selections,I was going to lose my mind.
Fuck sorbet. - Val, Founder
WHAT IS DECADENT CURIOSITY?
Decadent curiosity is approaching anything worth doing with a sense of wonder and a slight compulsion to get weird and push boundaries. It is what inspires our choice of ingredients, flavor profiles, and opulent presentation.
We pride ourselves on sourcing high-quality, ethical ingredients. This means a great deal of thought and research goes into the each ingredient we buy.
i.e. Where does it come from? How is it grown / packaged/ preserved? Are the folks who farmed it earning living wages?
We know that there will always be room for improvement in this area, and we strive to always do our best in considering the impact of our decisions.
We make all of our ice cream, cones, cookies, mixins, toppings and garnishes from scratch.
Our small-batch flavors are crafted with a precise blend of oat and house-made raw cashew mylk. Organic cane sugar or organic agave nectar are our sweeteners of choice.
Used responsibly, because sugar crashes are tacky.
THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS
Our iconic flavors, Disco Cherries®, Handies, Gold Cones, and 8oz demi-Pleasure Pints are meticulously labored over by our dedicated Creamstresses.
It is our goal that you feel spoiled and celebrated each and every time you experience us.
Because you deserve it!
Paradise City Creamery is a boutique
ice cream shop based in the Arts District of
Downtown, Las Vegas.
Founded by community organizer and veteran sex worker, Valerie Stunning,
PCC strive’s to build a company and culture that reflects our core values of conscious indulgence, celebration, and inclusion.
We understand that inclusion is often performatively touted as a value in most companies.
And we also understand that there is a difference between “all are welcome here,” and “this was built with you in mind.”
We aim for the latter.
Our team includes Sex Workers, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ folks and we are proud to give a percentage of our proceeds back to the mutual aids and organizations who support these communities.
