Postcard From Burlington, Vermont

When In Vermont…Ben and Jerry’s

What better symbol of Vermont than a Ben & Jerry’s?  While this is not the original – it was torn down long ago – this one is the flagship store in downtown Burlington.  The factory is located a few miles east in Waterbury, but the store and visitor center are undergoing renovation and currently closed.  We made do with this one.  What flavor did we choose? New York Super Fudge Chunk – Chocolate Ice Cream with White & Dark Fudge Chunks, Pecans, Walnuts & Fudge-Covered Almonds!

Who knew there were so many kinds of flour?  I guess I did, but seeing so many varieties in one place was fascinating.  Kathy & I like bread, but like so many things, we like to eat it but are happy for others’ passion in baking it!  But it was the first stop after we crossed into Vermont, so we stopped in, wandered around, took a few pictures and left.  It was pretty busy, we didn’t have anything we wanted to take home, and knew that we would soon have other “souvenir” opportunities – in the afternoon we stopped and purchased at (a) a distillery, (b) a maple syrup and cheese farm, and (c) a maple syrup museum (who knew?).
