Is This the Best Ice Cream Shop in Michigan?
Once again, a Michigan creamery has been ranked among the best in America. But what do you think, are there even better spots for ice cream in the Mitten State?
Don't get me wrong - I love Moomers Ice Cream in Traverse City! We actually got a multiple-tier ice cream cake from Moomers for our wedding! Highly recommend! Especially because prior to the wedding, we got to head out to their sprawling farm and creamery and try a TON of different flavors - yum!
Traverse City's Moomers Homemade Ice Cream Named Among Best Creameries in U.S.
Moomers Ice Cream is getting a shoutout on Thrillist's list of "The 40 Best Ice Cream Shops in the U.S."
Here's Thrillist's praise for Moomers:
Seldom do you get to eat something delicious while looking out the window at the animals that provided the ingredients, largely because there’s no quicker way to ruin a burger. But this little country creamery in gorgeous upper Michigan lets you gaze upon cows while getting down on your choice of 160 (!) amazing handmade ice creams ranging from a take on regional fave Superman called SuperMoo to cupcake and Chocolate Monster. Get your scoops in sandwich form, or buddy up on the Wholey Cow—10 scoops with every single topping—then plop down and say thanks to Bessie before you drift off into a blissful diabetic coma.

The Plummer family runs Moomers Creamery on their dairy farm - so yes, you can see the cows that produce the milk for the ice cream right there at the farm!
There's also a GORGEOUS sunflower field on the property. Now Moomers says that due to lack of rain the sunflowers are smaller than average this year - but still looks lovely to me!
