But you came for the sweet treats, right? If you’re looking for old-school “iced cream” (not ice cream, because there is no ice in their cream), insanely smooth frozen custard, and a sweet vegan option, this is your happy place. Visiting Grandpa’s shop before it closed, Juju knew people would love to see that continued, so she kept that as a traditional option for her guests. But as a PNW transplant originally from the Midwest, Juju wanted to share her love of frozen custard with Olympia.
Softer and creamier than iced cream, Juju’s makes their frozen custard in-house with cream, just like their iced cream, but that cream has a higher milk fat percentage, and it is also includes egg yolks. There aren’t many frozen custard shops in Washington, but Juju is on a mission to introduce the velvety delight to Olympians.
If you love cold treats but are looking for a vegan option, Juju’s got you here, too. “It’s Olympia, so you’ve got to have some vegan options, right?” Juju laughs. “That's how Cascadia Grill is pattern too. We’ve got steak, seafood, and burgers, but we also have a whole separate vegan and vegetarian menu. We just kind of mimicked what we were doing there here at Jujus. The vegan soft-serve (the flavor options change daily) is lighter and softer than their iced cream options and is made with top-quality plant-based milks and fresh fruit juices.
