Culture starts with food that makes you feel good. 

Known for innovative flavors (think Toasted Rice, Golden Sesame or Turmeric & Korean Honeycomb), Noona's Ice Cream is the first ice cream company in the United States to offer a collection of Korean-flavored ice creams to Brooklyn and beyond. 

Not only is there a need for variety in our ice cream aisles but it's clear we need more ice cream with fresh ingredients and flavor. 

Here at Noona's Ice Cream, we love infusing authentic Korean flavors with our favorite American treat: ice cream. We do this by working with local makers, and take pride in using culinary techniques that allow us to produce cleaner, bolder and balanced flavors. 

In small batches, we make all our ice creams with grass-fed dairy and cane sugar. With our sweet cream, we create our special flavors using the best natural and organic ingredients. 

Here’s what you WON’T find in our delicious ice creams: artificial colors, artificial flavors, pesticides, growth hormones, Carrageenan or GMO.

Our Story

"THE WORD NOONA STANDS FOR EVERYTHING I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT: FAMILY AND FOOD."

- HANNAH BAE, FOUNDING NOONA

The word noona (누나) means "big sister" in the Korean language.

Noona's Ice Cream is a naturally delicious Korean inspired ice cream company founded by Hannah Bae, a noona that simply LOVES providing joy through good food (especially, ICE CREAM). 

Although sweets are not traditionally the highlight of Korean cuisine, ice cream has always been a part of any special occasion in the Bae family. Bae's fondest memories revolve around family meals that always ended with ice cream and the sharing of culture through food and laughter.

Inspired by flavors of home, Bae created a flavor she calls Toasted Rice and is now a signature flavor of Noona's Ice Cream. When Bae shared her Toasted Rice ice cream for the first time in 2014, it stuck with people and word spread. It wasn't soon after that Bae began hand-delivering Toasted Rice pints throughout the 5 boroughs.  

In 2015, Noona's Ice Cream was created with a simple mission: to build culture through food and to build a company that cares for the world through its values and community involvements. We are proud to partner with Korean American non-profit organizations and provide opportunities for the youth.
