Ludlow, Vermont - August 4, 2010
We couldn't very well end the World Creemee Tour without stopping somewhere to taste test a true Vermont maple creemee! This week, we traveled down to Ludlow, in south central Vermont, to the Green Mountain Sugar House. This is a true maple sugaring operation, and they produce not only syrup and maple candies, they use their own syrup to make some of the best creemees in the land! Ann Rose told us they use their Grade B syrup in the ice cream to make sure it tastes like maple and not just a fancy vanilla cone and it works! These are definitely real Vermont maple creemees! And they make them year-round, so skiers from the area also stop in for maple creemees in the winter!
This is a beautiful location too, right on Lake Pauline! We saw people swim up the lake and climb out and go get a creemee, and people arrive by boat as well. And for those of us who drove here, it was nice to take our creemees to the picnic tables and Adirondacks chairs down by the water.
Yes, it is very sad to bring the televised part of the World Creemee Tour to an end, but just to make it clear; I intend to continue my "research" long after the Creemee Tour is no longer being televised and long after this creemee season is over.
Did I find the best creemee place in the land? I found several! They were all fantastic, and you all have had terrific suggestions and ideas of where to go. I couldn't possibly stop at them all during this past 6 weeks, but I invite you all to look over all of these suggestions and do your best to go on your own creemee tour, checking out as many of these recommended creemee hot spots as you can! Maybe I'll run into you along the way!
