"Full of heavy hopes and dreams, we quit our corporate jobs and bought a truck. An idea is all we had. Just a truck and a dream..."
Holy Rolly Charleston is the first and only rolled ice cream food truck in South Carolina/Charleston bringing the tasty experience of rolled ice cream to a variety of lowcountry venues. We are two self-professed ice cream geeks and our goal is to provide the freshest ultra-premium ice cream experience possible. We are finalist for Best Ice Cream, Best Desserts, and Best Food Truck in Charleston by the Charleston City Paper and The Post & Courier. We offer scratch made rolled ice cream and signature handcrafted desserts in a cup, waffle taco shell, or our NEWEST menu item dessert sushi 🍨🌮🥢🍣 as well as "Sinful" desserts (21+) that are infused with alcoholic sin sauces as well as "Saintly" desserts (non-alcoholic/kid-friendly).
So what exactly makes Rolled Ice Cream special??? 🤔🤔🤔
1️⃣ Each individual serving is made fresh by hand 👋🏼 using an artisanal method originated in Thailand. We are one of the few rolled ice cream shops that make our ice cream base by hand instead of pouring premade soft serve mixes ⚠️ purchased from wholesale and adding flavoring to them . Our signature ice cream base is made fresh with only 3 ingredients: Grade A Milk, Cream and Pure Cane Sugar. We roll our ice cream base on a stainless steel plate that freezes to below -20 degrees and we chop, mix, and fold a variety of fresh cobblers, cakes, and pies inside the ice cream base to make unique creations.
2️⃣. Rolled ice cream has virtually no overrun (AKA the amount of air pushed into the ice cream during the churning process). We 👏 are 👏 not👏 in👏 the👏 business👏 of 👏 churning👏 air and that's one of the things that distinguishes premium rolled ice cream! Since ice cream is sold by volume and not weight, air is the invisible (and cheapest) ingredient incorporated during the churning process to stretch ingredients. Low quality ice creams can have overrun as high as 100 %, meaning the "ice cream" is half air, melts quickly, stores poorly, and lacks flavor. Premium ice creams are more flavorful but can still have overrun of 50%. Rolled ice cream has little to no overrun because we don't have to churn any air inside making it one of the most ultra-premium ice cream products available. We make our ice cream fresh by hand-rolling on a steel plate using quality ingredients which results in an ultra-premium ice cream with a rich and creamy mouth feel an intense flavor profile 🤤.
3️⃣. Our method of making ice cream means we don't have to incorporate 🚫 air, 🚫 powders, 🚫 stabilizers, 🚫 gums, 🚫 emulsifiers, or 🚫 added preservatives found in most ice creams. We pick each ingredient with care so that we can roll up the most decadently rich and luxuriously creamy rolls you have ever had. Rolled ice cream is one of the freshest and most superior ice creams in taste and quality and the method works for us so we are sticking to it!
