Guss Damn Good
Born during a snowy Boston winter in 2014, Guss Damn Good was a successful startup created by two Thai MBA schoolmates.
One of the highlights here is the creative ice cream names. Each flavor is named after its unique stories and feelings involved during the creation. For instance, Don’t Give Up #18 is the first flavor of Guss Damn Good that was inspired by the number of trials before the final recipe.
