Unbelievably Delicious. Surprisingly Lactose Free.

This is the story of Katy, a lactose intolerant nurse, and Gwen, a sympathetic sweet tooth who couldn’t stand the thought of people going through life without ice cream. The pair both grew up loving ice cream but, by the time they met at Villanova University, Katy had become lactose intolerant. She tried all the alternatives – soy, almond, coconut and more – but they just didn’t cut it.

So, she churned up something better – REAL ice cream, without the lactose. Finally, Gwen and Katy could share the same pint, and no one had to compromise. They decided that no one should have to miss out on ice cream because of lactose intolerance, so they teamed up to bring the joy of real ice cream to all with Beckon.

Beckon believes that you can always tell a good ice cream by its Vanilla. Crafted using double-fold Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla extract for a striking flavor profile, this Vanilla is anything but boring.

Dark Chocolate Brownie

A classic indulgent chocolate base reminiscent of the brownie batter we all ate as kids - with a creamy texture and the gooey brownie pieces already mixed in! Yes, you CAN have your cake and eat it, too. No compromises here!

Cookies & Sweet Cream

The nostalgia is real with our flavorful Cookies and Sweet Cream. Churned with a cream-filled chocolate cookie crumble, this delicious lactose free ice cream is full of creamy texture and flavor. Now you never have to miss out on dessert time.

Beckon Won Best Lactose-Free Frozen Treat in Parents Magazine's Best Frozen Treats Awards 2022

The younger tasters didn’t care that this treat was lactose-free, because they were too excited to play with their food as they dumped the crunchy chocolate “gems” into the single-serve snack cups. The ease and convenience impressed even the parents unconcerned about lactose intolerances.
