We are a family that loves ice cream, especially during the hot Texas summers. This summer we recently decided to try making our own ice cream in honor of National Ice Cream Month. That was an experiment gone terribly wrong for several reasons. It took forever to figure out how the ice cream maker went together. The mess we made was epic. We accidentally turned the ice cream into butter and froze it into a solid rock. There were some funny moments, despite the fact that what we made was not edible.
I made a spontaneous decision to run out to the market to get already made ice cream in a variety of flavors to appease everyone in the family. Tom Thumb, Albertsons and Market Street stores carry Mayfield Creamery ice cream, which has some iconic signature flavors reflecting local southern tastes and ingredients. There are several options to choose from.
I know and trust Mayfield Creamery ice cream. They are a family brand that has been around since 1923. Mayfield ice cream is the real deal. It is made from fresh cream from their own dairies.
Mayfield is returning to its traditional roots by rebranding their products to reflect the original “Mayfield Creamery” name. This represents their time-honored commitment to making the finest quality ice cream that incorporates fresh cream from a real diary.
I am also pretty psyched about the new flavors, such as Sea Salt Caramel Cheesecake, Lemon Ice Box Pie, Candy Jar Crunch, Banana Pudding, and Peppermint Stick. The classic flavors are also great, like Smoky Mountain Fudge and Vanilla made with real Madagascar vanilla beans. The Chipper ice cream sandwiches are also a hit with the little kids.
We were pretty happy to also learn that Mayfield Creamery ice cream is stepping up to bat as the official ice cream of our beloved Frisco RoughRiders minor league baseball team. The ice cream will be sold throughout Dr. Pepper Ballpark when the team is playing home games. Of course, we can always get the ice cream at our local Dallas- Fort Worth markets when the team is out of town. (check MayfieldCreamery.com and visit their store locator!)
The next time we get the not so great idea to make our own ice cream for family fun night or to celebrate National Ice Cream Month, I am going to immediately nix that plan and head out to pick up whatever signature Mayfield Creamery ice cream flavors we want to try out.
