Being In Beaver Is A Creamy Delight
We’re all just getting back to our regular routines after a long weekend. If you’re like me, the long weekend consisted of a few adventures. One of my adventures was driving to Beaver to eat at The Creamery.
The Creamery’s website describes its beginning in 1952 when local farmers built the first plant to supply cheese to the Beaver community which it’s still doing. The Creamery is probably most famous for its squeaky cheese. You can learn more about how it’s made here.
The Creamery serves and sells products from neighboring family farms in the area and each purchase supports those local family farms. The Creamery has a kitchen, and ice cream shop, and also sells all kinds of dairy products and assorted snacks. There’s also an area at the back where you can see the journey of the food you’ve eaten at the kitchen, ice cream shop, or any of the other dairy products they sell.
I’ve been to The Creamery twice, and the food from their kitchen has been excellent both times. It was Memorial Day weekend, and the line was extremely long. However, I probably spent more time waiting in line to order than it took for my order to be ready, which was nice because I was very hungry.
I don't eat beef as much as I once did, so the braised short rib grilled cheese was a tasty treat. The cheese curds were fabulous and come with two dip choices. I chose the fry sauce (I mean, come on, we're in Utah after all) and the garlic and chili dip which was immaculate. I also picked a fruit cup as a side which made this entire meal totally healthy, right?
This trip was the first time I tried anything from the ice cream shop. I ordered the Coconut Castaway shake, and it was so yummy. I love anything coconut and the shake had a refreshing and summery taste. An added bonus was a delightful conversation with a fellow "The Wheel of Time" fan.
Another cool thing about The Creamery is its commitment to giving back. In the “About Us” section on its website, it says that in 2021 The Creamery had donated 247,000+ servings of dairy.
