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.
