Delicious Handcrafted Ice Cream

Unique Flavors You Won’t Find Anywhere Else!

Sparky the dog

We take pride in remembering bulldog, Sparky. He is quite truthfully the inspiration behind the business! He was an amazing pup who the shop is (OBVIOUSLY) named after. We miss and love you Sparky! Everything we do in the store is dedicated to this little man. We even have a rack that you can tie your pet to outside while choosing the perfect flavor.

We put the HOME in homemade

Sparky’s offers over 30 unique flavors all made on site! You might find a whole cookie or a whole muffin in your scoop of ice cream! We aren’t greedy at Sparky’s and give a great deal of toppings in every bite..YUM! We work with many different ingredients and experiments to deliver you exactly what you want. It isn’t that same processed ice cream that comes frozen and already made. We make it! We have created over 50 new flavors over the past decade and we will create more!

We also take requests on what flavor we should make next. If you have an idea of what flavor we should create next:


Our store is one of a kind, literally! There is only one Sparky’s Ice Cream Shop, located in Columbia, Missouri. We only buy our ingredients from locally sourced farms and retailers. We love our warm community of Columbia and we hope you do too. Picking Sparky’s over a chain is not only more delicious, but it gives back to the grounds of this community and supports not only our local business, but many!
