Vermont's Top Creemee Stops

If you’ve enjoyed a creemee, you’ve probably been to Vermont – and you’re probably craving another right about now.

That’s a Vermont term for a soft-serve ice cream. The Green Mountain version is thick, rich and often maple-flavored, though most creemee stands also offer vanilla and chocolate – and some have menus with more than 100 flavors.

Members of the 251 Club, a group striving to visit each of Vermont’s 251 cities and towns, weigh in on their favorite local spots to stop and enjoy a refreshing creemee.

Edwin Loveland describes himself as “semi-retired,” and lives in Vermont full-time. “The best place for me to have a creemee is Morse Farm in Montpelier,” he said. “There it is an entire experience, and the atmosphere is perfect. You can grab your creemee and walk around, sit in the shade, and maybe even chew the fat a little with Burr Morse, and the creemees are out of this world, especially the maple.”

He’s far from the only Morse Farm fan.

“The maple creemees at Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks are legendary! Their sundaes incorporating other maple goodies come with a spectacular view,” agreed 251 Club member Brenda Greika.

Amanda Brunell, a lifelong Vermonter, called out Canteen Creemee Company in Waitsfield for their unique approach to the creemee craft.

“I love their homemade, unique flavors like basil or honey lemon,” she said. “Their ice cream is delicious, smooth and creamy. The flavors are the perfect strength, not overpowering but enough that you can taste it.”

Member Kristin Jarvi likes stopping at the Maple Angus in West Rutland.

“They have the best tasting and smoothest maple creemees! … And, if you order one in a dish, you get a drizzle of real maple syrup! Can't go wrong,” she said.

Karen Richard recommends the Village Scoop in her hometown, Colchester, for its refreshing treats and atmosphere.
 

“They not only have the best ice cream, but they also have a drive-through window as well as a walk-up window. There are umbrella tables and benches to sit under a big maple tree. As you sit and eat your ice cream, you may see a horse in line at the drive-through,” Richard noted.

Stephanie Young stumbled upon LegenDairy Maple and Ice Cream in Williamstown after exploring more of the state on her 251 Club quest.

“It was hard to choose from the dozens of options of creemees and traditional ice cream that LegenDairy offers! We stopped here after doing a 251 adventure to explore the floating bridge in Brookfield and grabbing lunch in Northfield at the Falls General Store.  It was an extremely hot day so creemees were needed,” she recalled.
