Our final feature for Black History Month is Brooklyn-based Creme & Cocoa Creamery! Creme and Cocoa make small-batch ice cream, frozen desserts and other sweet treats right at the border of Prospect Lefferts Gardens and Crown Heights. Founders Omar and Astrid Thorpe blend the sweet and refreshing tastes of soursop, papaya, sorrel and mango from their Panamanian and Haitian heritage to create an eruption of flavor that will delight all your senses. As a family-owned business, Astrid and Omar try to use ingredients from local West Indian shops and milk from upstate farms. Soon you will be able to take these unique flavors, along with traditional flavors and vegan options, home in pint-sized containers. To keep up with the Thorpe’s, visit Creme and Cocoa at 1067 Nostrand Ave, just down the street from the Sterling Street 2 and 5.
Thank you to all of our businesses who participated in this month’s celebration as we honor black-owned business who strive to make a difference in their communities and contribute quality goods to New Yorkers, Happy Black History Month!
