The Sweetest Summer Tradition — Inside A Vermont Creemee Stand

Inside Palmer Lane Maple, a small, white, old parsonage in Jericho, maple products decorate the walls from sweets to hot sauces. This candy store in northern Vermont is also a local legend for their maple creemees.

A creemee — for those outside of the Green Mountain State — is called soft serve ice-cream elsewhere.

A standard maple creemee sits in the cone with a gold-like tint from the fresh maple syrup. Every cone comes out perfectly swirled — a mountain of dairy goodness protruding gracefully into the air.

What gives the creemee its novel consistency is the additional air is forced into the mixture when it’s frozen. Palmer Lane uses a custom mix from Kingdom Creamery of Vermont.
