We saw boxes and boxes of tubs and lids, ice cream cones and dry ingredients. There were pictures on the wall from back in the day at the creamery. We walked past offices and meeting rooms and in front of windows where we could look down on the ice cream makers and packagers. They were making neopolitian, great divide, strawberry and the best homemade vanilla - plus ice cream sandwhiches. They all get swirled and shot into tubs, lids on and flipped upside down to seal them. The ice cream sandwhiches, now that's different. They load tons of chocolate cookies on to a tray and the machine shoots the ice cream between them. It slaps shut and wrapped up before they get loaded into the boxes.
In the last room they were making some popscicles too - those machines looked awesome! This summer we've been eating lots of the new friut popscicles and ohh are they good. Actually, it wasn't the last, last room because in the last room we got to eat ice cream! That was the best part ofthe whole tour - it was so good. We mostly all got something different and tried a little bit of everyones. I'd like to go back there tomorrow, I think.
