Simple Pleasures is a family and veteran-owned ice cream manufacturing business. The family behind Simple Pleasures have been handcrafting delicious homemade ice cream and other frozen confections in the DMV for twenty-two years. Their business was conceptualized after operating mobile ice cream cart units in Florida and living in Europe for a decade. After experiencing some of the best ice cream and desserts, while embracing the European confectionary culture, their family decided to bring these sweet delights to the Washington, DC area.

Since they have been in business, they have received enthusiastic reviews from the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun, PG Suite, Gazette-Star, Bowie Blade-News, and were selected as 2014 Small Business of the Year. For the past twenty-two years, they have manufactured their ice cream using the best dairy creams. They use all-natural ingredients, pure Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, fair trade cocoas, and a high butterfat dairy cream free of hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides.
