Do you have any fat free or low-fat options?

Of course! We offer a line of low-fat options as well as rainbow sherbet and fruit smoothies.

How long have you been in business?

Olson’s has been in the dairy and ice cream business since 1921 and in our current location in downtown Chippewa Falls since 1941. Take a trip down memory lane.

Is your ice cream really Homaid, and do you make your own?

We have been making our own ice cream for many decades. We are very particular with our ingredients.  Several decades ago, Howard Olson developed the ice cream mix that we still use today. He also worked with a supplier to develop our special vanilla flavoring. We use only the finest ingredients to ensure you are pleasantly surprised every time you enjoy “an Olson’s”. If you stop in while we are making ice cream, please be sure to look through the glass windows to see us in action.

Do you give tours?

We give some prearranged tours primarily to school and youth groups.  We have also set up the ice cream room with glass windows, so you can watch us make your favorite flavors.

Do you have food?
