I narrowed the list down to the ones I considered to be the most significant. You can pick out the ones that apply to you. Here goes:

Palmerton residents Antonia Aita, Trisha Sterling and Jackie Tracy enjoy their ice cream cones outside Claude's Creamery, Palmerton. The girls selected soft serve twist, Cookie Doughlicious and Milk and Cookies, respectively.

Claude's Creamery, the new ice cream store along Palmerton's main street, began with an ice cream craving.

"I was driving through town one day and wanted soft vanilla ice cream," said proprietor Mark Masenheimer. "I asked around and found out I had to go far away to get some."

His craving for soft ice cream sparked the idea that would soon turn into Claude's Creamery, named after his grandfather who loved ice cream, specifically, teaberry.

Claude's serves premium gold ice cream, which is a higher quality ice cream than most grocery store ice creams.
