  • “Miller, these are awesome.I was born and raised in Vermont and I remember these well at the Howard Johnsons in Rutland.You have brought back beautiful childhood memories of shopping trips with my beloved Mom and how we would stop there for treats!They are also great with Maple Walnut ice cream, you just had to use a long ice tea spoon, along with the straw to get the chopped walnuts in the bottom of the glass.Thanks for the memories!!Tweeky”
