When traveling in Michigan, a favorite of tourists and Michiganders, alike, is Mackinac, Mackinac Island, and Mackinac Island Creamery.

Mackinac Flavors began in 2001 as a new ingredient company, and by the year 2002 Mackinac Island Creamery was introduced featuring premium ice cream flavors centered around themes pertaining to the Great Lakes. In 2003 another element was added, Mackinac Island Trading Co, stretching beyond the ice cream industry with foods such as candy, fudge & coffee all with Great Lakes themes.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said

“We dare not trust our wit for making our home pleasant to our friends so we buy Ice Cream.” 

Mackinac Island Creamery is a company that has, in the past few years, became synonymous with unique and luscious premium ice cream flavors. Mackinac Flavors and Mackinac Island Creamery are consistent crowd pleasers and have repeatedly taken the honor of taste testing venues across the Midwest.
