"Sweet Cream" Flavor
Thu, 05/29/08 5:06 PM
I am a huge fan of "sweet cream" ice cream, which is properly made of just cream and sugar and nothing else. (like Vanilla, but without the vanilla, you know?) Growing up, I thought this was a peculiar specialty of this fabulous place we used to get ice cream -- in the back of a feed store in Southwick, MA. (The last time I went, I had to stand on top of a bag of animal feed and lean over a cage of rabbits to pay for my cone.) Imagine my horror to see "Sweet Cream" as the cornerstone flavor at Cold Stone Creamery.....bleh. Was this flavor more common than I knew? I've always bragged about it and tried to convert people to its charms via my own homemade sweet cream, but now am perversely annoyed by the notion of it being coopted by the Home of the Gummy Frozen Substance that Passes for Ice Cream.
Has anyone else experienced real "Sweet Cream" ice cream? Did I spend all those years thinking it was a local secret wrongly?
