Travel and Taste with TREATS


On Tuesday May 19th from 6:00-9:00, Hilary Emberton will launch her book An Invitation to Travel.

The book takes readers on a pictorial voyage to 56 countries with commentary by the author and photographer that brings special meaning to the photos.

TREATS will serve ice cream and sorbet flavors inspired by the countries featured in Hilary’s book. Come taste flavors like: Japanese Green Tea, Icelandic Rhubarb, Mexican Spiced Chocolate, Vietnamese Coffee, Indian Chai, Peruvian Mango, Guatemalan Cardomon and other exotic flavors.



Springtime and warmer temperatures make us think TREATSICLES ( our version of the popsicle).  We like to use local, seasonal fruits and veggies  so our flavors  are very fresh and will change throughout the growing season.  This year we’ll start off with kiwi,  pink grapefruit and rhubarb flavors.  These TREATS are vegan and organic.  We do also offer, vietnamese Coffee and Chai Boba Tea and Arnold Palmer Ice Tea TREATSICLES.  Later in the spring and summer we’ll have green smoothie,  cucumber-mint, strawberry basil, local berries, peach and melon flavors.  There are no added flavorings in our TREATSICLES  just organic, seasonal fruits and veggies ,  pure cane sugar and water/juice.  Stop by the shop and see what is in season  in our local region and at TREATS.

TREATS is very happy to announce a new product the TREATSICLE.

We will be producing our own brand of popsicles made with local, seasonal fruits and veggies.  We’ll start off slowly with spring strawberries, rhubarb, citrus and sweet potato some infused with herbs and spices for extra flavor. We’ll also carry TREATSICLES made with espresso, coconut, tea, chocolate, bananas and yogurt.  As the seasons progress we look forward to creating our frozen treats with peaches, berries, watermelons, cucumbers, apples and pumpkins.

We’ll try to use little or no sugar whenever possible and instead of plastic we’ll wrap our products in paper.

The TREATSICLES will be available beginning April 1st at our shop located at 110 York Street in Nevada City CA and at our local farmers markets beginning in June.
