New in Town: Kai Lee Creamery

If you've been following along with our culinary adventures, you know that we plan stops on roadtrips around ice cream shops. So, it's not too much of a stretch for us to plan a bike ride with a new ice cream shop as our destination.

This afternoon we were debating: hike or bike. Then I mentioned that there was a new creamery in town and the deal was sealed. Bikes came out, helmets were strapped on heads, and off we went to the American Tin Cannery to try out Kai Lee Creamery.

Butch Adams, the owner, was manning the counter. So we chatted with him as we tried the different flavors. Made in small batches onsite, all of the ice cream is corn-free, wheat-free, soy-free, and gluten-free. He doesn't use dyes or preservatives. And, as much as possible, his ingredients are locally sourced and organic. Sweet!



We tried caramel, raspberry ripple, mango, mango dairy-free, lemon cream pie, pumpkin pie, ginger honey, and the mystery flavor. It has no name yet. If you go there, taste it, suggest a name, and he picks your suggestion, you'll get a free double scoop. Not bad!

We ended up with scoops of lemon cream pie, pumpkin pie, and ginger honey. The lemon cream pie had strips of zest and a refreshing flavor. Pumpkin pie was like biting into Halloween. And my favorite was the ginger honey - with generous-sized chunks of candied ginger.

Though we're heading into the cooler season, we'll be visiting Kai Lee Creamery again soon. If you're local, check them out and tell me which flavor was your favorite.
