Pink Turtle Shoppe brings Tracy's famous Double Rainbow Ice Cream to Tracy! Double Rainbow has been producing award winning, super premium ice cream since 1976. Their ice cream was voted "Best Ice Cream In America" in the Grand National Lick Off. All of their ice creams are made with milk and cream from cows NOT treated with hormones and non-genetically modified corn syrup. For those whose tummies can't tolerate dairy, or enjoy a vegan lifestyle, we bring you a variety of Soy flavors!! Our kids couldn't tell the difference and we couldn't wait to share it!
Arabella worked in a corporate office for over 14 years commuting to the Tracy Bay Area each day. After the company downsized and relocated, she began looking for opportunities to stay close to home, manage their 5 children, and still earn a living. Using her degree in Business Management combined with the kids' love for making yummy treats, the ice cream sandwich idea was born! Her entrepreneurial spirit was ready to flourish and teach her teenagers the skills of business ownership, while her husband maintained his job to keep home afloat. She has loved turtles since she was a child, so it was only natural to call the business: Pink Turtle Shoppe! The journey was not easy or fast, but well worth the path!
A few fundamental values that make us tick:
Arabella has had a love for turtles since she was a little girl. Hundreds of collectible trinkets can be found in her home. As an adult, she has continued to be fascinated with the animals slow, gentle, yet determined spirit.
"The turtle totem wisdom teaches us about walking our path in peace and sticking to it with determination and serenity. Slow moving on earth, yet also incredibly fast and agile in water, those who have the turtle as totem or spirit animal may be encouraged to take a break in their busy lives and look around or within themselves for more grounded, long-lasting solutions. Traditionally, the turtle is symbolic of the way of peace, whether it's inviting us to cultivate peace of mind or a peaceful relationship with our environment."
