Two New Ice Cream Places in Virginia

Two New Ice Cream Places in Virginia...
 
 
...including:
 
 Moo Thru (http://www.moothru.com/), Remington, Virginia
Located on the southbound lanes of Route 29 between Warrenton and Culpeper (or exactly four miles west of the Route 29 and Route 17 intersection in Opal and the less-than-stellar Pete's Park-n-Eat for you folks using Routes 15 and 17 as an alternate to I-95 in the Old Dominion), the classic New England ice cream barn just opened this past Tuesday and I've already hit it twice. Fresh, handcrafted ice cream or what they tout as "real ice cream from real dairy farmers" is what they serve through two order windows framing a bay window of said displayed dairy products. Flavors range from vanilla, chocolate, Key Lime Pie, butter pecan, strawberry and a half-dozen others. Simply fabulous. Rich, luxurious taste. Great setting. Lots of picnic tables. A New Hampshire-like setting some seven states south. Who woulda' thought?
 
 
 
Sweet 95 (http://www.kitchen64.com/), Richmond, Virginia
Located directly off of I-95 as it passes through Virginia's capital and next to (and owned by) the upscale diner otherwise known as Richmond's Kitchen 64, Sweet 95 isn't yet opened (stopped-by today and they're still in the permitting stages) but rumor has it that their product will be none other than that produced by the (Wirtz) Virginia-based Homestead Dairy. Homestead Dairy, near Virginia's Smith Mountain Lake, uses milk from two local, older and family farms to make their ice cream and makes a point of using milk free of antibiotics and hormones. This will surely be a place to watch when it opens later this month and you'll not find an easier on/off interstate accessibility than this place. I can't wait.

    Actually thanks for that part too.  I always want to stop there but never do.  I use 15/17 a fair amount and wondered if Pete's was any good. Looks like a roadfood place but never seems anyone there.

    HOMESTEAD makes some of the best milk and if SEET 95 is using there products it should be some tasty ice cream!

    The Moo Thru was packed yesterday....passed by on my home from a motorcycle ride. All three windows had at lest 15 to 20 people waiting in line. Took quite awhile for the place to open, glad to hear it's was worth the wait......

    As I mentioned in my mini trip report, I finally got to stop at the Moo Thru.  They also now serve a few lunch items , but we just tried the ice cream.  Everyone very rich ice cream and we enjoyed it.

    Stopped at the Moo Thru late yesterday. Still so very good (and affordable as in two small [double] cones of homemade ice cream for @ six-bucks).

    It seems that new 'custom' Ice-Cream shops are becoming quite popular and the number of them in our area (Louisville) seems to be growing. Always glad to see a new entry into one of our favorite products !!!

    Well nothing along US 15 to indicate it at least, just came through there yesterday.  And of course the traffic was heavy enough we would not have gotten off 15 anyhow, no way to get back on
     
    We also skipped the Moo thru last night sadly :( but we did go to Wegmans on US 29. 
    Ohh and Oddly enough, there were actually like 6 or 7 customers at Pete's Park And Eat.  Never seen customers there before.

    They must have been die hard Pete's fans....there are a few. I've never had any luck there the couple of times I've stopped.
     
    Cheap eats...but not really worth the stop.
