Two Scoops Please

We all know how quickly we can tackle one of those delicious Klein’s ice cream bars or ice pops, but how long does it take to create them? We spoke to Mr. Ari Klein, one of four grandsons now employed by the company, to find out.

“Before I explain how they’re made, I’d like to tell you a little of our family history,” Mr. Klein tells us. “My zeide, Reb Ephraim Klein a”h, survived the Holocaust and came to New York.
