On the weekend of its seasonal reopening, Kreme + Krumbs posted that it had been broken into, with its glass door being completely shattered. The ice cream shop posted a video and photo on its Instagram account. 

The Kreme + Krumbs bike was also stolen, which made the dessert shop easily mobile. Dozens of comments were displayed on the video posted, with the community showing its support.

The Backstory

In 2012, Kiahna began to brainstorm about a unique way to approach an ice cream sandwich.

“I wanted to create a non-traditional ice cream sandwich by combining the classic celebratory desserts cake and ice cream. It was important that my ice cream was creamy and full of flavor. Using all-natural ingredients, the best artisan vanillas, chocolates, and Jersey’s best seasonal ingredients,” Malloy shared via the website. 

In 2014, Kiahna served the “Kremewich” for the first time and it has left its mark on the world of ice cream ever since.

In 2017, Kreme + Krumbs opened for business in Bloomfield.

Some of the ice cream flavors that Kreme + Krumbs has brought to the table are Peanutbutta Milk and Kookies, which is made with peanut buttermilk and peanut butter cookies; Junk Kreme, which is vanilla ice cream, brownie chunks, caramel, and salted pretzels; and Jersey Turnpike, which is Kreme + Krumbs’ Rocky Road flavor. 

The famous “Kremewich” also has come in many flavors, such as the Apple Krumb Kremewich that contains vanilla ice cream, caramel swirls, and Cinnamon Apple Krumb Kakes. The Mint Chocolate Dipped Kremewich is made with Valrhona chocolate ice cream, dark chocolate cakes, and is lowered into minty goodness such as mint chocolate and peppermint chips.
