The Happy Chocolatier Brings Lizzy's Ice Cream to Acton
The Happy Chocolatier™ of Acton will now feature Lizzy’s Ice Cream (Waltham) in the company's retail store at the Nagog Park Mall. New selections from award-winning, locally made Lizzy’s will include super-premuim ice cream, sugar-free ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet. Lizzy's is also now offering chocolate confections from The Happy Chocolatier in its Waltham, Needham and Cambridge stores.
The founders of both companies left jobs in large corporations to pursue their dreams: creating and selling high-quality sweets that would delight customers. The companies are now working together to broaden the range of outstanding confections available in the communities where their stores are located.
“With Lizzy’s Ice Cream now available in our retail shop, we are able to expand the breadth of our offerings and provide a locally made product to our customers,” commented Paul McMahon, who founded The Happy Chocolatier in June 2011 and opened his retail location in October of the same year. “We believe in supporting local small businesses whenever possible and this is a great example. Nick Pappas and his team create ice cream that is extremely fresh, comes in rich, delicious flavors and supports the local economy.”
The Happy Chocolatier will begin serving Lizzy’s Ice Cream in its store on Saturday, September 22, also National Ice Cream Cone Day. Customers may come in for tasting samples of Lizzy’s Ice Cream, hand dipped treats and Cubze, and meet Lizzy’s mascot, Super Cow. To celebrate the day, customers that bring a grocery bag of non-perishable food items for the Acton Food Pantry will receive one free ice cream cone as a “thank you” from The Happy Chocolatier.

Lizzy’s Ice Cream
In 1994, Nick Pappas left his job in the computer industry. With a life-long love of ice cream and access to great ice cream recipes, Nick opened Lizzy’s Ice Cream in Waltham in 1995. For Nick, ice cream has always been a great experience by itself, but he also realized that ice cream was about “bringing people together” since his best memories of ice cream always involve friends and family. Lizzy’s broad range of ice cream flavors and types – over 50 flavors always available – grew directly from Nick’s desire to have something for everyone. Lizzy’s offerings include no sugar added ice cream for people on restricted diets, soy-based ice cream for people avoiding dairy products, nonfat sorbets, and products offering a range of fat levels from zero to 16%. This lives up to Nick’s motto, “If your mission is to bring people together, you need something for everyone.” For more information on Lizzy’s Ice Cream, visit the company’s Web site at www.lizzysicecream.com.
