Belle-V Packaging

Belle-V PackagingOpening your Belle-V Ice Cream Scoop is just as thrilling as using the product itself. Each scoop is cradled within a heavy-duty craft cardboard box, over-wrapped with a designer sleeve and comes with a branded storage pouch. The packaging was designed to be incredibly attractive and highly gift-able by the award winning design firm Lunar.


The scoop is a great gift for special occasions. Each scoop comes in a beautiful gift box made from craft paper, which is over wrapped with a designer sleeve and includes a branded storage pouch.

Licks Thank You note

Thank You Note
A beautiful thank you note from the owner of Licks Ice Cream Shoppe who received a Belle-V Ice Cream Scoop as a gift.
"Dear Karen,
Just a little note to thank you and your brother for allowing me to be one of the first to try your new ice cream scoop “I love it”. 
It is really an awesome design and very user friendly for my poor aching wrist!
I will anxiously await its arrival in stores so I can add to my shoppe.  I will also let all my ice cream friends know about it!
Love,  Patty, Licks Ice Cream Shoppe"

Introducing...The Chicken Scoop?

We recently received a piece of customer feedback about a new use for the Belle-V ice cream scoop. 
“So your ice cream scoop is awesome, love that it's heavy duty and looks very sleek. I handed it to my 2 year old Eden, and she decided to use it for her chicken!  It will find it's way to the bottom of an ice cream container soon :)”
-- Jeff O.
Jeff & Eden, thank you for the feedback and for the opportunity to delight you.

Cadillac of Ice-Cream Scoops

perfect scoop of ice cream
We recently received a piece of customer feedback that touched our hearts:
"We love the scoop and use it almost daily as my wife loves ice cream... Previously we had a big handled scoop from the grocery store, which was badly pitted all over. Your scoop is easier to use, great to look at and better in all ways. My wife has Parkinson's disease but is able to use your scoop with no problems. Great design. Keep up the good work!" -- Bob (St. Paul, MN)
Bob, Thank you for the feedback and the opportunity to delight you and your wife.
