The beauty of the creemee lies in its simplicity. A swirled, soft ice cream in a plain little cone. That’s it, nothing complicated or grandiose, just simple good creemee finished with a crunch as you nibble the cone. The Sapbucket isn’t so pure that we’ll only devour creemees unadorned, but by and large that’s our preference. It helps that there haven’t been too many advances in creemee technology in the 21st Century. We’ll allow for the occasional sprinkles, maybe a dip once in a while, but never the flavor infusions that tip the edges of the creeemees with wild colors and dubious flavors. If someone does offer an innovative approach on the creemee, the Sapbucket will give it a try, but we always approach with suspicion.
Which brings us to our next stop on the Creemee Crusade, Cookie Love‘s Love Shack in North Ferrisburgh. They’ve been serving up their creemees for a while, and we’ve been hearing reviews yet never had the chance to stop. Always seem to be heading by just after they’ve closed or without time to stop. If you aren’t familiar with Cookie Love they make some damned delicious cookies, which can be found in both their prenatal and hatched stages. So the obvious draw for Cookie Love creemee is a creemee rolled in cookie chunks.
Cookie Love is in on Route 7 in North Ferrisburgh. It shares a parking lot with the town Post Office. You’re coming here for the delicious cookies, cookie dough or creemees, not so much for the view. There’s a picnic table if you don’t want to risk bits of cookie falling off your creemee and into your lap. Which is probably bound to happen anyway, you just won’t veer into oncoming traffic while trying to save those bits of cookie.
Offerings and Price
Chocolate, Vanilla and Mixed creemees, with your choice of cookie topping. A small topped with cookie rang up at $3.75, which is higher than your average creemee. But remember, this one has a COOKIE on it.
All of our preconceptions about creemee additions melted once we saw the Cookie Love creemee in person. Look at that thing. You’re probably salivating just checking out those giant cookie chunks. We’ll we didn’t look for very long before diving in, and man was it good. The chunks nestled nicely into the creemee allowing for good bites of both creemee and cookie. We opted for their “Puppy Love” cookie topping (peanut butter chocolate chip) and that added another dimension to our chocolate-vanilla swirled creemee. We veered from our normal creemee eating style to gobble up all the chunks before they fell off. In some ways it felt like we were eating two deserts, creemee and cookie and then a smallish creemee as well. We certainly didn’t mind.
