From the Star Democrat:

OXFORD — On Tuesday morning, dozens of families in pajamas and slippers lined up outside of Scottish Highland Creamery for a chance to experience “Ice Cream for Breakfast Day.”

This much anticipated event allows children and adults alike to break with the traditional breakfast of eggs and toast and instead treat themselves and their families to sweet treats.

Christine Leggett, a manager at Scottish Highland Creamery, said this event has been going on for about 10 years. Leggett said the creamery is in a unique position to have events like this because they are able to create all their flavors of ice creams. “We can be so creative,” Leggett said. “And the fact that we can make this event happen by having all of these unique breakfast-themed flavors sets our business apart.”

Prior to its start, countless customers would ask if the creamery ever made breakfast-themed flavors. At first, the creamery would try to design breakfast-adjacent flavors, but after a while it decided to really commit to the theme.

It was through this commitment that the “Ice Cream for Breakfast Day” event was created. Now, customers eagerly await the event all year to see the new flavors and potentially win a prize for best “just woke up” look.

Workers at Scottish Highland Creamery scooped up “breakfast themed” flavors such as fruity pebbles, blueberry muffin, coffee donut and strawberry pop tart to eager customers of all ages Tuesday morning.

Michele Etherton, accompanied by her daughter and two young grandchildren, Axel and Sofia Etherton, said she looks forward to this day all year.

“It’s our favorite day of the year,” Michele Etherton said. “And we get a sticker that says ‘Ice Cream for Breakfast,’ and we get bragging rights at school.”

Axel and Sofia say their favorite flavors are chocolate and kool-aid ice creams. Their mother, Fillippa Etherton, said she enjoys the time to do something a little different during the summer.

Leggett said she would bring her children to this event when they were young, and it would be the highlight of their summer. She hopes to do the same for other families.

“So many people come in and they think back to their summers as a kid, and this is one of those events that they remember,” Leggett said. “And it’s a huge privilege for us to be able to be a part of that.”

Welcome Oxford Kids Camp

By News

We were thrilled this week to be able to spend some time with Oxford Kids Camp attendees!

Campers learned about the production of our delicious ice cream from the Master himself, Vic Barlow.  After some of hands-on practice, the Oxford Kids Camp crew got to taste the fruits of their labors! Surely a fun and memorable experience for everyone involved, and a blast for us to host.

Hope to see you around town again soon, campers!

Oxford Day Fun

By News

We had such a wonderful time celebrating our little town this past weekend. The weather was perfect for ice cream treats, and our fabulous patrons did not disappoint! Folks were lined up at our cart in the Causeway Park, and at our window throughout the day to sample some of the delicious flavors we had available.

In honor of the Royal Wedding Cake flavors, Kendall, Kirsten, and Riley were scooping up a special batch of Elderflower and Lemon Cake ice cream, which was absolutely amazing!

Vic made his customary appearance in the Oxford Day parade, along with some special helpers this year, tossing candy along the route to smiling faces lined up along the street.

As always, it was such a pleasure to join in all the festivities and bask in the glorious glow of our community here in Oxford, while taking in some much needed springtime sunshine.

We’ve got some photos here that we thought you might enjoy. I think it’s clear how much fun was had by all. Can’t wait to do it again next year!

If you were able to stop by our Oxford location recently, you may have noticed a big change. We’ve recently updated our signage, and we think it looks pretty snazzy!

You’ll now find one large blackboard, with sizes, options, merchandise, and flavors, all priced and organized in an easy-to-read, fun format. The scoops on the right are updated with our current flavor selections throughout the day, and you can easily sort through our toppings, options, and other fun offerings as well.

We are super excited about it, and it looks like our Facebook friends are as well! If you have any feedback, drop us a line, or comment on the post. We’d love to hear from you.
