Need a suggestion on where to get your Creemee?

5 Places you'll find Central Vermont’s Dreamiest Creemees
You say soft-serve, and I say Kreemee — at least in Central Vermont. Go elsewhere in the Green Mountain State, and it might be spelled Creemee, Creamie, Creemie or Creamee.)
Let’s call the whole thing off (for a minute, anyway), and look at the some of the best licks in Central Vermont.
Then, take our readers’ poll and let us know which spelling is tops for soft-serve cones.
1168 County Road, Montpelier
Morse Farm is famous for its maple-sugaring operation, which
makes its maple creamees all the sweeter. Sugar-buzzed, browse through the gift
shop and historic sugarhouse.
112 Main Street, Stowe
Before you order that Creemee, you may be tempted to try a scoop or two of traditional ice cream. I.C. Scoops not only offers traditional ice cream along with Creemees but also makes its own. Stowe Ice Cream is homemade, with more than 20 flavors to choose from.
Mountain View Snack
Route 14, just south of Hardwick
Route 15, between Wolcott and Morrisville
Route 100, just north of Stowe
Sometimes a Creemee isn’t enough. You have to have the burger — or fries. A shake, a foot-long hot dog: you get the idea. Mountain View Snack Bars has three locations and should sometimes be approached as an event in itself. Sure, there’s the quick after-practice or evening treat, but there are so many other menu items to explore, it’s mind-boggling.
Dairy Creme (oh my! another spelling)
320 State Street, Route 2 heading west out of Montpelier
Three generations of Creemee history is what you’ll find at Dairy Creme in Montpelier. (On a side note, Dairy Crème participates in the all-in-one recycle program, recycling more than 4 tons during the season.) It was once an A&W of years gone by, and you’ll love the ease of ordering, picking up and catching a spot right next to the Winooski River.
Canteen Creemee Company
Village Shopping Plaza, Route 100, Waitsfield
Canteen’s newest Creemee location opened this summer. From the executive chef and other team members from The Inn at the Round Barn, this spot takes the Creemee to a whole new level with homemade chocolate chunks and dips. Consider also the kimchi burger and the fried (yes, fried) chicken that has become a local legend. All the while, they’ll put on the vinyl (yes, vinyl) albums.
