What Our Customers are Saying
“I went to D’Lites the day they opened, hoping to find a delicious and healthy alternative to unhealthy treats. What I found was so much more than I expected. Not only their incredible ice cream, but so many other healthy, delicious foods. My favorites include their chocolate brownie bomb, which is off the charts, and the bulletproof coffee, which is how I start my mornings every day now. D’Lites is a true experience, a one-stop shop for so many delightful, healthy desserts and other foods.” Nick Drizos
“My favorite thing that I get there a lot is the Coconut Flakes paleo cereal. [Kirsten] actually texted me the other day because she was almost out. She said, ‘You might want to come in and get it,’ so I went in and bought the last of what she had,” Katrina says.
Katrina’s nine-year-old son, Dylan, and her fiancé, Manny Alves, a jujitsu instructor, also love D’Lites, but they go for the soft-serve ice cream. Like most kids, her son wants to eat lots of ice cream, so Katrina is glad that he really likes the low-sugar D’Lites ice cream and doesn’t mind indulging him once in a while when he asks for seconds.
When that craving for deliciously sweet treats comes on, head over to D’Lites Shoppe. But be sure to leave the guilt at home, because you won’t need it. Katrina Costedio
“I refer lots of my patients to them who have dairy sensitivities and things of that nature, and who don’t need to be consuming grain products, because I know Kirsten carries a lot of paleo,” Dr. Michele says. “I take a lot of people off of sugar, so if there’s somebody who’s having a hard time because they’re missing having their desserts, then that’s an alternative that can kind of satisfy that sweet tooth and not get all the bad stuff that goes along with it.” Dr. Michele Louiselle and Dr. Ray Bisesi
“I love D’Lites! As a parent, everywhere we go, my kids are bombarded with junk and sweets. I’m always having to say ‘no’ to limit their intake. Going to D’Lites, it’s nice to be able to say ‘yes,’ knowing that the treats they get are healthier, not full of sugar or artificial sweeteners. I like that I can take my kids out for ice cream and not feel bad about it. I can satisfy their sweet tooth, put a smile on their faces and never have to worry.” Tara Motzenbecker
