Jason Cherun – Founder
Jason is a husband, father, foodie, former chef, and founder of Hero Ice Cream. He has always had a passion for cooking good quality, delicious tasting food. From the age of 16, he was in the restaurant business, cooking and living out his true passion of being a great cook. Despite making a career change in his 20’s, he continued to play in the kitchen, always whipping up delicious and innovative dishes for his family and friends to enjoy. As his passion for good “real” food and living a healthy lifestyle continued to grow, he realized that there was a serious lack of clean, better-for-you snacks that aren’t filled with loads of crap. Ice Cream was something that he always loved, and felt that there weren’t enough clean options on the market. He wanted a product that had the same decadence and real ice cream quality of a “premium” ice cream brand, but with better-for-you ingredients and nutritional qualities. And so, Hero Ice Cream was born.
We’re all heroes in our own lives, and every hero deserves a treat! Whether you need a moment of "me time" at the end of a busy day, or some quality time sharing a snack with your kids, friends, and family, or a celebration, or a way to cool off on a hot day, or just a simple snack to keep you fueled and satisfied....HERO is always the answer!
We wanted to develop a “real” ice cream made with fresh all-natural Ontario cream. There are too many “frozen desserts” on the market that make low calorie and low sugar claims, and encourage you to eat the whole pint. But, at a closer look, they are actually filled with additives, and loads of junky ingredients. We say, why eat junk-filled frozen dessert by the pint full, when you can eat a proper serving of real ice cream made with clean ingredients, that you can feel good about?! It’s a no-brainer.
Our ice creams are high in protein, lower in calories than other conventional brands, and lower in fat and sugar. They’re made with all-natural, easy to pronounce ingredients, that not only taste amazing, but are better for you too!
Hero Ice Cream, prides itself on being 100% Canadian, made locally in Toronto.
