new today: vegan lime toasted coconut

Excuses for ice cream:
#1 sunshine
#2 seventy-three degrees
#3 vegan lime toasted coconut!

Our newest vegan flavor is made with organic coconut milk, toasted organic coconut flake, and organic lime zest. It's like a piña colada garnished with a coconut macaroon, but it's dairy, gluten, and alcohol free, so it's also a legit reason to sneak away from work this afternoon!
Now scooping through May 24th.

new today: melted chocolate sorbet

Our new melted chocolate sorbet is a captivating combo of melted Theo 70% dark chocolate and organic fair-trade Equal Exchange cocoa powder. It tastes like a scoopable fudgesicle and is 100% vegan! Equal Exchange is a new partner for us, and we are excited to be using their fair trade cocoa powder, which comes directly from a collective of small farms in the Dominican Republic.

Available now through May 17th.

new today: peach goat cheese

Our newest flavor is peach goat cheese: goat cheese ice cream threaded with homemade peach jam! Here's why: last summer our chef and his team preserved 100 pounds of Tiny's Organic peaches, harvested in East Wenatchee, so we could turn it into ice cream during the cold times. The goat cheese is a high-quality, creamy chèvre from Gothberg Farms in Bow, which we love for its organic practices and the high standard of care for their goats. Scooping now through May 10th.

new today: salt licorice

Salt licorice has arrived! Made with organic ground star anise from Market Spice, kosher salt and a dash of Sambuca to help get that licorice-y flavor. This flavor is inspired by the Double Salt Licorice candies that Molly's coworkers at a Boise candy shop once used as a not-so-sweet form of hazing. (Get the full story here!) Available through April 30th.

Labor of love: pushing for progress with family leave

We were so thrilled to host Secretary of Labor Tom Perez today, but more importantly we're thrilled to announce that molly moon's now pays 100% of wages to employees taking maternity leave for 12 weeks and 70% of wages for paternity and family/medical leave. We're so excited to be expanding our benefits to include a family and medical leave policy that is good for our people and strengthens our community!

The Secretary's visit was part of Lead on Leave - a joint project between The White House and the US Labor Department to look at best practices around paid leave and how flexibility in the workplace benefits employees, families and businesses. Seattle was the first stop on the tour, and Secretary Perez met with Molly, Mayor Ed Murray, City Councilmember Jean Godden and other local business owners and workers. And of course, the Secretary got to enjoy some strawberry ice cream before he left!

We're excited about paid family leave because it's great for our employees, and great for our business -- it helps us recruit and hold on to the awesome people who work here. Mooncrew!

Rhubarb is one of the first signs of spring here in Washington, so March feels like the perfect time for a strawberry rhubarb sorbet! We're using organically grown rhubarb from Richter Family Farm in Puyallup, and is as delicious as it is pink.
