Real Simple Magazine Thinks We're "Ingenious"

Real Simple magazine recently featured the Belle-V ice cream scoop -- an ingenious product that makes life easier

The Realist section on page 50 of the May Issue says, “A sharp, spade-like edge enables this ergonomic ice cream scoop to glide easily through rock-hard rocky road (no more waiting for it to soften)."

Thank you Real Simple for the kind words and congrats to the other great products featured in the article!

Praise for Belle-V Ice Cream Scoops

We received a nice piece of fan mail today: 
I'm Katy from Boomer's Drive-in. We are not a scoop shop, but we have people prepping milkshakes everyday. This means that each person with a shift must scoop three 3-gallon tubs of vanilla ice-cream. 

From talking to my hops there are a few things that stick out about the scoop:

  1. They hold heat well, which makes a big difference in how quickly one can scoop
  2. The angle that they are at is able to cut the ice cream
  3. The texture is much smoother and builds less callouses on our hands
  4. It lets people put less pressure on their wrists
  5. Very high quality
Thanks Katy!

    Belle-V Packaging Update

    Belle-V packaging prototypes
    Over the last few months, we’ve been exploring what packaging experience best complements the scoop. The team at LUNAR has put thoughtful intention into the design of the package – continuing to keep the main focus on the scoop itself as the hero of the Belle-V brand experience. With that in mind, we have kept our packaging to a minimum and have infused the right balance of functional elegance into the experience. Below are a few samples of our early prototypes. Although there's plenty of tweaking left to do, we are excited by the overall direction and wanted to share with our friends at Kickstarter. Drop us a comment or “like” it above.

    You're Invited to the Belle-V Ice Cream Social!
