Photo Hunters: Sweet



Creamies, creamees, creemies . . . there are all sorts of spellings in Vermont for soft-serve ice cream. It is a huge occasion in the spring when the Barton Pharmacy opens their ice cream window. Here Wingnut (grandson) has his first creamie of the summer.

Here he is waiting for his "baby sized" creamie. We only order baby size because they are so big. They also cost only $1 (no tax). If hard ice cream, the baby size is two big scoops.

Wingnut waits for his change.

Here he poses near my car in front of the pharmacy.

The Barton Pharmacy is in the Pearce Block, one of the historic original buildings in Barton. They have a full service soda fountain (yes, just like back in the fifties) and the only pharmacy within 30 miles. Also in the Pearce Block is Catherine M.'s antique store.

Wingnut is enjoying his ice cream cone in the gazebo on the village green.

I bet a lot of Photo Hunters are going to have ice cream as a theme this weekend! Thank you for visiting.

  5. Lucky grandson! I just wish we had the weather for ice-cream! Today isn't as bad as it has been recently, but that's the best I can say.

    I'd like to add I think your grandson looks sweet too, but boys don't often appreciate comments like that!

    You live in the most beautiful place. I love seeing it in your photos.

  11. I love soft ice cream. Just had a mocha latte soft-serve last week. It was so big I had to use a spoon to eat it. It was in a sugar cone (groan...). The cost? $0.33 cents, :)

    Love your place there. You probably know it because I said it before, haha!. I love your state, even if I haven't been there. Yet.

    Have a sweet weekend!

  12. I think it is so neat that they still have a pharmacy that has a soda fountain and the ice-cream window. Perfect pictures for this week's sweet theme. It looks like your grandson had a wonderful time just hanging out with you.
    Have a great weekend.

  30. I had ice cream today, too, with Mr Right. He had something with salty peanuts, mine was walnut and coffee - yummy! But expensive! 2,30 euros each - I think that's close to 2 dollars!
    The "village" (is it one really?) looks very pretty.
    Thanks for stopping by :)

  45. Actually, I think yours is the first Photo Hunt entry I've seen that's featured ice-cream! BTW, one of my unfulfilled fantasies is to patronise a place with a real full-service soda fountain! Too bad that I couldn't get to one in my more than ten years of living in the U.S.A.... ;(
