Corner of Vermont’s Maple Creemee

Move over, Ben & Jerry’s. The Corner of Vermont makes a Maple Creemee so delicious it puts Half Baked and Cherry Garcia to shame. New Yorkers who hail from the Green Mountain State flock to this small restaurant in Park Slope to get a taste – it’s that authentic. The recipe comes from New England’s Kingdom Creamery, a family owned dairy and maple farm dating back to the early 1950s. It features maple sugar, a grade A maple syrup, milk and cream. Order a waffle cone of the good stuff for yourself. Treat the pipsqueak to a kiddie size cup.
