Welcome to the Lab
Our Experimental Playground for Your Palate
About the Lab
For 2021, The Ice Cream Factory at the Box Factory is opening our new line of experimental innovations to delight factory-goers and deliver new creations that are uniquely Rochester. While the Factory will continue to serve up classics in generous sizes, we will be introducing new pastries, a riff on toppings, and new constructs. Known as "The Lab," we will be freshly updating our creations every year, featuring incredible inventions inspired from global desserts, twists on classics, and off-the-wall prototype delights. You decide what graduates from the lab and becomes a permanent Factory staple.
"Our customers have an opportunity to try something they've never had before," says Tracy Paladino, our owner and operator. "While we want to continue to deliver great ice cream in a wonderful location, we are ready to make Rochester a standout in fun new ways to reimagine everyone's favorite treat."
This year's Lab produced a spicy (!) new sauce, a play on a Rochester favorite, and a global experience in coffee (psst. It tastes like the holidays!)
We froze up local delights and are rolling them off the line. Because we love the ROC.
IC Garbage Tin
A Riff on a Rochester Favorite
It is no mystery Rochester loves garbage on a plate, so why not your favorite frozen treat in a...tin.We dish out 3 or 6 scoops of your favorite flavor, chuck on a half-split banana, a full brownie round, pound cake squares, and our lab-made IC "meet" hot sauce. In case that's not enough for you, add two more of your favorite toppings. What a glorious mess!
$6.5 for two, $10.5 for four
IC "Meet" Hot Sauce
Nobody Should Put Sauce With a Kick on Ice Cream
Oh, Yes. Yes, they should.
A secret ingredient takes our sweet and creamy caramel sauce and punches it up with cookie crumble and a little heat!
Perfectly designed for the IC Garbage tin, the IC "Meet" Hot Sauce is going to shock and delight!
Add as a Topping.
Global Inspiration Line.
