Our brand’s purpose is to give everyone the smallest excuse to

be a kid again

because there are no rules.

Creating Stories that are Written One Sip at a Time

We got our start in 1967 in Los Angeles, California. As ICEE grew, we began acquiring locations across the entire United States and developing a presence in Mexico and Canada. Our name changed as we grew, evolving from Western ICEE to ICEE USA, and finally landing on The ICEE Company.

J&J Snack Foods acquired The ICEE Company in 1987, and has remained our parent company ever since. ICEE products are now available worldwide, including Central America, China, Australia, the United Kingdom, Western Europe, the Middle East and South Africa.

Today, we are proud to be the No. 1 frozen beverage brand worldwide and to be a part of creating the stories that are written One Sip at a Time.


ICEE is a kid in a cup! Joyful, carefree & thrilling.

It's stick-out-your-tongue fun all in vibrant & full color!
You don't just drink ICEE

you experience it
