About Ruby Jewel

In 2004, Lisa Herlinger stumbled across an ice cream treat void in Portland, Oregon. Her solution? Fill it with extraordinarily and distinctly original ice cream sandwiches. After countless late nights churning out batch after batch of cookies and ice cream, Ruby Jewel was born. Lisa sold the first Ruby Jewel ice cream sandwich out of a cooler at Portland farmer’s markets, and her treats quickly garnered a loyal following. 

While Ruby Jewel has received significant acclaim, appearing in national and regional media outlets, all Ruby Jewel ice cream sandwiches are still small batch, hand-crafted in our own kitchen and ice cream factory we call “Spin City.”  Committed to supporting the local community and economy, Ruby Jewel uses only the best ingredients, thoughtfully sourced from farmers and food artisans in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
