Ok – pop quiz. What do the people in New England call soft ice cream? Creemees – which I think is a fantastic word. It completely describes the creamy, wonderful texture of soft ice cream. I bring all this up to tell you about this story – the Vermont Milk Company distrubuting a machine that produces a soft ice cream made with Vermont milk.
The company bought the franchise rights to the British “One Shot” ice cream machine. The innovative machine makes five-ounce creemees from prepackaged single serving cartridges.
The Vermont Milk Company plans to sell the machines in New England and New York City. A company priority is to pay dairy farmers a fair price, never dropping below fifteen dollars per hundred pounds of milk.
