Cremas Absalon

Who inspired you to start making kremas ice cream?

Not a matter of who, but what. The idea of cremas ice cream came to me as I was brainstorming on how to improve my current cremas product. It just so happened that I had an ice cream machine lying around at the time, the business was still in its early stages. After a few failed attempts, I perfected the recipe, letting everyone around me taste test. The concept of cremas ice cream was and still is mind-blowing. In addition to cremas ice cream, I have a few more frozen dessert products coming down the pipeline this year.
Someone once called me a game-changer. I accept that.

What is the most challenging thing about your business?

Too many things to list but one of the most challenging things is scaling the business while working a full-time job. There are plenty of lost opportunities and the inability to conduct Cremas Absalon the way I want to while balancing a 9-5. However, I am fortunate to have help when I am unable to vend at an event. Until Cremas Absalon becomes my only full-time occupation, I must be very discriminatory on things I do.

When did you launch the business?

I launched the business in 2013 with the idea to revolutionize traditional cremas. My product differs from authentic cremas by design. It was created with the younger Haitian-American generation in mind. I made something that is versatile, well balanced and that I can use in many different forms. Cremas Absalon’s mission is to create a line of cremas inspired products.

Where can we find products from Cremas Absalon?

Cremas Absalon Cremas Creamer, Cremas Shots, and Mini Cremas Bottles are available on The larger bottles and ice cream products are mostly sold at pop-up events. However, customers can send an email to to place an order.

Why the name Absalon?

Absalon is my last name. People tend to compliment me on my family name, so I wanted to name the brand something that people will continue to compliment and love!

How many employees do you have?

It is mostly myself, but my family also helps out.
