Default Ice Cream Barge

Hello, my son heard about an ice cream barge on the lake. I found some outdated information on this. I’m wondering if this still exists? Thank you.

No ice cream barge at this time on the big lake, but Walmart in Gilford and Plymouth recently started with Brigham's Ice Cream at 3.98/qt.

Another good one is the Wednesday special at Kellerhaus; a large cone for just 1.09, and Kellerhaus has ice cream they make themselves that is the best, ever, especially their vanilla which is a yellow color!

It’s called French vanilla and is yellow because there are egg yokes in it.

https://Kellerhaus.com/pages/homemade-ice-cream ..... believe Kellerhaus has a note on their board there that says the natural color for their home made, vanilla ice cream is yellow or something? Note the 'Keller Vanilla' printed with yellow letters ...... that's a clue!

Here's a local business selling very yummy Brigham's vaniila for 3.98/quart: https:http://www.walmart.com/ip/Brighams-V...1-qt/141159261.

There is an ice cream barge on the lake. It resides in Green's Basin. I do not believe that Declan has a set schedule. He goes out when he feels like it. I use to babysit him when he was young. His family owns a small island. That is where the boat is.

There was something similar for sale on Craigslist a while back but it had to do with “burgers” too, as well as ice cream. Some youngster was selling it.
I can’t find the ad so it must have expired...

Does he travel randomly, or deliver by request?

Think only randomly as he lives way up in Green's Basin.

Original question may have been prompted by this. Ran on NH Chronicle on Wednesday night.

Liliuokalani's ice cream is not a barge, but they have docking just for customers at the northern end of Paugus Bay. They are on the east side of Paugus Bay about 400m (1/4 mile) SW of Naswa.

Barges like this pop up from time to time... you never seem to see them consistently.... Business model is very hard to deal with...

While the Dive appears to be having a good run, and I do wish them success... I wonder about the longevity of that new business... hopefully they have learned what pit falls others have had.
