7 Fun Facts

Things you may not know

1. Earth

Nitrogen makes up 78.1% of the Earth’s atmosphere. It’s the most common uncombined (pure) element on Earth. It’s estimated to be the 5th or 7th most abundant element in the Solar System and Milky Way.

2. It's Everywhere

Nitrogen compounds are found in foods, fertilizers, poisons and explosives. Our bodies are 3% nitrogen by weight and found in all living things, including plants and animals.

3. Aurora Lights

Nitrogen is responsible for the orange-red; blue-green; blue-violet; and deep violet colors of the Aurora Lights.

4. Protective

Nitrogen is used to protect historic documents like the Declaration of Independence and The Bill of Rights.

5. Saturn

Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, is the only moon in the solar system with a dense atmosphere. It’s atmosphere consists of over 98% nitrogen.

6. Pluto

Pluto may have once been home to lakes and rivers filled with liquid nitrogen. Scientists say that large flat areas on the dwarf planets’ surface are likely the result of bodies of still liquid, while networks of grooves were possibly cut by rivers of nitrogen, released when changes in Pluto's climate thawed some of the nitrogen ice that still covers its crust.

7. The Start

Nitrogen derives its name from the Greek word nitron, which means “native soda” and genes, which means “forming”.

Ice Cream that’s “Green”

What does it mean to have “green cream”? Knowing what ingredients are in included in your ice cream and how the ice cream is produced are all reassuring to customers when they search for products for themselves or their families. Because we care about our customers we care about your concerns. We strive to use local ingredients whenever possible and take stringent steps to reduce waste.

One of the ways we try to reduce “waste” is by not prefreezing any of our ice cream. The one big difference between us and our competition is that you won’t find any ice cream freezers in our stores. We use only one refrigerator and one freezer to keep our ice cream ingredients fresh and ready to go. By not prefreezing our ice cream we maintain the smallest carbon footprint of other ice cream shops.

We offer dairy free and vegan alternatives to ice cream which substitutes ingredients such as milk and cream with coconut or soy. These are often a good source of protein and essential amino acids.

Whenever we add or change something in our stores being environmental friendly as well as fresh are paramount in our decisions. We will continue to look for ways to support all our customers in the things that are most important to you.

We know you have a choice when you choose your ice cream shop and we appreciate you choosing us!!!
