Peekaboo

peekabooJessica Levison wants to scoop up a Shark to invest in Peekaboo, her vegetable infused ice cream, in Shark Tank episode 1125. Levison, like most parents, has kids who just don’t want to eat their vegetables. Kids LOVE ice cream though, so she began mixing veggies into her home made ice cream to give to her kids. In January, 2018, she started making Peekaboo for distribution to the masses.

She combines traditional ice cream flavors like strawberry with carrots. The chocolate flavor contains cauliflower; Cotton Candy has beets; Vanilla has zucchini and Mint Chip has spinach. All the ingredients are organic and GMO free. As a socially conscious business, they donate a portion of their sales to Team No Kid Hungry, a non-profit that provides food for hungry children.

The ice cream is available at many stores including select Whole Foods, Safeway, Kroger and many more. If you can’t find it in the store, you can buy it on Amazon. She wanted to introduce a vegan ice cream option in 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic set those plans back. In 2018, her ice cream was recognized as the most innovative products of the year by Mintel, the world’s leading market intelligence agency. She hopes the buzz and the yumminess of her ice cream can lure a Shark into investing.
