Is there really a Sister Cleo?     YES!  Sister Cleo is a Franciscan Sister of Oldenburg Indiana. Sister is 89 years young and grew up on a farm outside of Oldenburg with her 17 siblings. Sister spent many years teaching and cooking for the sisters and the Archbishop of Indianapolis.One day she said that we should make ice cream for the town people and visitors that was eight years ago and after thousands of scoops later we are still going strong! Sister makes it a point to come to the store everyday to mix ice cream, do dishes, or her favorite, meet the people.
All of Sister's ice cream is made in store.
Sister starts with our homemade base made with sugar,milk.cream and heavy whipping cream.All other ingredients are the highest grades of nuts,chocolates fresh fruits and hand squeezed juices.The salted caramel is homemade in our shop.We only use real extracts and never food coloring. Ice cream made the old fashion way ! 
The following is a list of flavors we carry all the time:
Vanilla, Chocolate, Mint Chocolate Chip, Strawberry, Fresh Squeezed Lemon, Orange Cream, Butter Pecan, Salted Caramel, Root Beer, Cherry Cordial
