Our Ice Cream

Lick Me™ is a premium consumer brand of ice cream produced by the Gourmet Ice Cream Factory in Camberwell. Lick  Me™ represents the essence of a traditional European ice cream and sorbet recipes that have been nurtured by three generations. This cultural inheritance has resulted in the creation of the most natural and exclusive ice cream in Australia.

Our ice cream and sorbet flavours have won many gold medals at the Dairy Industry Association National Awards as well as Dairy Australia’s “Grand Dairy Awards.” We are committed to only using natural products (no artificial colours or artificial flavours) and the use of only the freshest ingredients, The Gourmet Ice Cream Factory is proud to promote its exclusive brand.

All of our ice cream is made gluten free, however we do add Oreo cookies to our Cookies & Cream flavour.

Our ice cream is made the old fashioned way – full cream milk, cream and real, natural ingredients. For example we use real strawberries in our strawberry ice cream and real bananas in our banana ice cream. Not only does this make our ice cream tastier, but it contributes to making it more allergy tolerant for many people with different intolerances. You can definitely taste the difference.

Leanne G“We had your sorbet cake today for my sons 21st birthday. Due to him being anaphylactic to Dairy, Eggs & Nuts this was his first “store bought” birthday cake & all 3 flavours were delicious. I had fantastic communication by your team to assure me there would be no issues with regards his allergies. It was great seeing him & all my family enjoying the same dessert.”

Christina D“The cake we selected was a builder cake. It’s was just amazing, the flavours were divine and not too sweet or sickly like supermarket ice cream cake. Very impressive, all our guests enjoyed it and asked for your contact so they can purchase a cake from you for various birthdays during this year. I also have to say, the service I received ordering the cake was very professional, as I ordered the cake from Queensland for my best friends birthday, and I was not arriving until the weekend. They helped me with the photo image as I couldn’t upload it on the computer, so had to email the image. Also they delivered the cake to the venue which was a plus, no hassles about picking it up etc. full recommendation to all, you will not be disappointed. Thanks so much, Christina D.”
