To say that we love Jeremiah’s Italian Ice would be a huge, huge understatement. In a moment of come-cleanedness just because we love y’all and feel like we should be totally honest: We visit about once a week on average. Perhaps sometimes more. Some might see it as a problem but we really just see it as spending quality time with one of our favorite friends. But really, though – we go to Jeremiah’s a lot.
If you’ve never been to a Jeremiah’s then: 1) We’re sorry, 2) where have you been, 3) why not and 4) you’re not living life to the coolest. Jeremiah’s is the gift (that you pay for yourself, unfortunately) that keeps on giving and we’ll accept it every time.
Though you may not be familiar with Jeremiah’s and even if you are you may not realize they’ve been around for nearly 25 years. Arriving on the Orlando scene in 1995 they’ve expanded to many, many locations throughout the area. Our first introduction was a little standalone shop up in Maitland, which has since moved and expanded. The timeline of their story is really pretty neat and totally mapped out on the Jeremiah’s website at JeremiahsIce.com/history.
So what is Jeremiah’s Italian Ice, exactly?
“Our Italian Ice is a decadent, yet refreshing treat with maximum flavor. Our Ice flavors span the taste spectrum, from the everyday to the exquisite and the eccentric. For the ultimate Jeremiah’s experience, be sure to grab a Gelati when you visit! The Gelati is the perfect layering of an Italian Ice with our Rich and Creamy Soft Ice Cream. The Gelati is the showcase of our menu and is a true indulgence!” – JeremiahsIce.com
PRO TIP: Jeremiah’s has a pretty decent loyalty program. If you download their app and scan your receipt after each purchase you can collect points, which can late be redeemed for free ice cream.
One of the stores we frequent most has a drive-thru so I don’t even have to get out of the car. What?!
And if you’re out at events quite often in the Central Florida area you’re bound to see the Jeremiah’s truck.
Ok, so here’s where you get to know a little bit more about us. Our favorites. We have three go-to’s that we keep in the rotation, each mixed with vanilla ice cream:
- Cookie Butter 🍦
- Cotton Candy🍦
- Sea Salted Caramel 🍦
And during the holidays they typically offer seasonal flavors like gingerbread and peppermint (with which tiny little crunched up pieces of peppermint are sprinkled on top).
There are several Jeremiah’s located throughout the Central Florida area. A few of the ones we frequent are:
2213 Edgewater Drive
Orlando, FL 32804
3150 South Orange Avenue

So the big question is, have you ever been to a Jeremiah’s? And if so, what’s your go-to flavor or combination?
