How We Began
Sweet Melody started as a love letter from me to my daughter, Melody.
We pride ourselves in presenting familiar (and not so familiar) flavors in a whimsical and creative way, telling our story one pint at a time, using the finest ingredients.
In 2014, I bought a $50 lime green ice cream maker at Brandsmart. It sat untouched for a year and a half. First in a storage unit, then in the corner of my garage, still in its box.
After losing my job, as if by serendipity, the ice cream maker found it’s way back into my life. Rinsing it off and turning it on changed my life forever.
I set out to make creative flavors that married comfort food with fun & creativity, using our superior ingredients, local flavors and artisans as inspiration.
We are constantly striving to make the best ice cream you will ever try! I named it after the person I love most in this world: my daughter Melody. This way, I know we will always make it THE BEST!
In the time since, we have grown but our spirit of small batch innovation has never changed.

The Sweet Melody Way
We make classic American style (sometimes referred to as Philadelphia or New England style) ice cream. It’s characterized by its rich, dense and almost chewy texture. The absence of egg yolks lets the delicate or bold flavors shine through.
We make all our ice cream from scratch, but we also make everything that goes in it from scratch as well. We are a State of Florida Certified Dairy Plant, and also a full bakery. Our team is committed to make the best possible product for you, from start to finish!
One try and you’ll know why!
