I do love my ice cream……I look for old fashioned ice cream parlors in small towns I visit……I love to stop for an ice cream when I’m out for a Sunday drive or on an adventure…….I get all excited when I see the open sign lit up at the Tastee Freeze……I never say no to an invitation to go for a sundae at Watt’s……I get all tingly when I think about an old fashioned soda – all chocolate – at Meggie Moo’s……and I try not to keep ice cream in the freezer cause I’ll finish it off in no time flat! So, when I heard that Adam Johnson was planning to open an ice cream shop on Main Street in Albion as part of his plans for three storefronts he purchased, I was beside myself with anticipation! And, now……the wait is over…….The Frosty Bucket opened up today! And, it was a no brainer when the thought of a milkshake for dinner popped in my head……I was there!!! I went with the banana milkshake that was mentioned on Facebook in mind, but ended up giving the peach milkshake a try…..YUM!!!! I was so very happy to see several people stop by for ice cream, sundaes, and shakes while I sat on one of the tables out on the sidewalk enjoying my treat and the gorgeous evening weather!
This is my milkshake with the walk up window of the Frosty Bucket in the background.
They offer a nice variety of treats and flavors……and I hear they’ll be adding more as they go!
One couple got their cones and walked across the street to sit on one of the benches painted by local artists – this one is commemorating the world famous Santa Claus School that used to be located in Albion……and notice the new sign on the Hazy Jade Gift Shop – isn’t it stunning?
Several people came and went while I sat there and a nice crowd formed just as I was leaving……this is a line waiting to order and there are folks who already got their treats sitting on the sidewalk tables in front of the three storefronts owned by Adam Johnson – two are currently in development (the gray one and the blue one). His building also showcases local Orleans County students’ art in the windows on the second and third floors.
I can’t wait to see what Adam does with the other two storefronts he owns – word has it that he is planning a restaurant and bar targeted to open in the fall!
