Review: Richardson’s Ice Cream

Little cow at Richardson's Ice Cream in Middleton, Mass.Well, the winner of “Write the Caption Challenge 2,” is Ms. Erin Hareng with:

“Don’t eat meat! Cows are too cute!”

You won’t find any meat where that cutie-patootie little baby cow is located. However, you will find fresh, tasty and velvety smooth ice creams.

The place is Richardson’s Ice Cream in Middleton, Mass., where the Richardson family has had a farm for more than three centuries. Yes, three centuries.

Richardson’s has 370 dairy cows that produce the quality milk for their ice creams and frozen yogurts.

Seen above are the moms-to-be in one of the covered barns that you can peek into while roaming the grounds with your ice cream cone or other frozen treats like frappes and sundaes.

You’ll be amazed at all the different flavors on the menu from “frozen pudding,” a rum-based ice cream with peaches, raisins, pineapple, maraschino cherries and apples; to cookie dough, double chocolate, pistachio and Crunch-a-Saurus, a mix of blue vanilla ice cream and chocolate-covered krispies.

If you’re being good, their 95 percent fat-free, no-sugar added ice creams (in coffee, black raspberry and vanilla) are amazing. You wouldn’t know that you’re being an ice cream angel with these!

If you do indulge in too big of a scoop of ice cream, take to one of the mini-golf courses or try your luck at the driving range. (Hint: See if you can catch the guy who practices his “Happy Gilmore” swing. It’s pure AWESOME!)

Richardson’s Ice Cream also has a second location in metro-Boston. It’s at the Jordan’s Furniture in Reading. So, buy a couch and get a scoop. Not a bad time for furniture shopping. You can also find a Fuddrucker’s, trampoline school and Jelly Belly outlet.
