Did you buy a creamee this year?

Many years ago, the word creamee may not have been in any dictionary. It should be in every one of them now.

Many a child and adults as well prefer a creamee instead of the regular ice cream cone. Its flavor, shape and smoothness make it a wonderful ice cream treat to enjoy.

Years ago, I don’t think the idea of making one on the machine that makes them was even thought of. It is wonderful today we have both.

Franklin County has at least five places where you can buy one. Vanilla and chocolate are the two favorite choices and some places you can get one with both of those flavors mixed together. Some also put sprinkles or M&M candies on them, if you wish. One of the most popular places was on Millers Fall Road near the airport. That one now is located in Turners Falls on the west side of Avenue A, across from the Shea Theater.

The next one is located in Northfield on its Main Street next to Mim’s. Another one is located on the town line between Greenfield and Bernardston on Route 5 just as you enter into Bernardston. That one is called the Town Line Creamee.

There are two more in the town of Sunderland. One is just east of the intersection of Routes 116 and 47. The other is on Route 47 South at a farm stand. There may be more that still sell creamees in the area.

Some of the above may be closed for the winter months but all of us can wait until spring so we can enjoy eating one of the best ice cream delicacies made.

Just another one of my stories ….
