402 Creamery is known for their homemade ice cream, which allows them to use quality ingredients and create unique, fun flavors, sometimes by using spicy innovation.

“We collaborated with Runza and created a chili-and-cinnamon roll ice cream flavor,” owner Tyler Mannix said. “We were thinking, ‘What is the most Nebraska thing we can turn into ice cream?’ Runza was at the top of the list.”

The flavor combined homemade cinnamon rolls and their premium ice cream base with Runza’s
chili seasoning.

The company enjoys collaborating with many local creators, including High Society Cheesecake and Kinkaider Brewing Co. They also allow others in the community the chance to help create new ice cream flavors—including the “Monster Cookie,” which features peanut butter ice cream with gobs of oatmeal cookie dough, M&Ms, and milk chocolate chips.

“Every year we do a ‘Customer Creation Month,’” Mannix said. “A customer came up with this creation, we sold it, and it was so popular, we continued to sell it.”

It’s these special touches that make 402 Creamery the premier place to get ice cream in Lincoln.
