About D’Lites of Austin
Our concept for D’lites Ice Cream Shops has not changed from the first day we opened. We never wanted to be, nor are we just an ice cream store. We are an emporium that specializes in the word diet.
The dictionary defines the word “diet” as a prescribed selection of foods. The first thing that comes to mind is weight loss. But weight loss is only one type of diet. Your diet may be for allergies, diabetes, reduced carbohydrates, gluten free, low fat, salt free, vegetarian, sugar free, religious reasons the list goes on and on. Our mission is to offer our customers the finest selection of products to meet their dietary needs.
The single most popular product at all D’lites locations is our proprietary frozen dessert. The D’lites ice cream is low in sodium, sugar, fat, and carbohydrates. It is cholesterol free, and a healthier alternative to regular ice cream. Our low fat ice cream gives you the taste and texture that sets D’lites apart from every company and product in the industry. Our experience since 1982 can’t be matched. Our federally registered product mark cannot be duplicated. As always we pride ourselves on the attention given to each one of our customers. And, thank them for our success.

A D’Lightful Story
D’lites Ice Cream Shops was formed in 1982 and in the 29 years of existence, D’Lites has developed a customer base of over 3 million satisfied customers. The soft serve products are certified kosher dairy, and can be suited to many diet programs.
It all started in Plantation, Florida over 25 years ago when Susan Corsover, at the age of 31, had her first of two open-heart surgeries and began her second chance at life. Changing her lifestyle and diet wasn’t easy and it wasn’t something she wanted to do . . . it was something she had to do. Susan was determined to beat the odds and live a long and healthy life . . . and she has!!
Susan began exercising and eating healthier and gave up fats and sweets. But the one thing she really craved and missed was ice cream. She was able to give up many of her favorite foods but, she couldn’t bear giving up ice cream.
So, she searched the country for a cholesterol free, low-fat ice cream that tasted like the creamy delicious old-fashioned dessert she craved. But, it didn’t exist. Disappointed but determined, Susan did the only thing she could to do to satisfy her craving and stick to her strict and essential diet-she invented her own low fat, low sugar, low carb, cholesterol-free ice cream. And so, D’Lites was born!!!
