Leona's. For some of you, that's all I had to say. Now I've lost you to the smooth texture, the bright flavors, and the unique combination of tastes created in the Leona's kitchen. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you've got to try an ice cream sandwich from Leona's!
Leona's is a lactose free product but you'd never know it from the taste. One of it's founders, Katie, has lactose intolerance and tried for years to find something she could love. She received an ice cream maker for a wedding gift, started experimenting, and the rest is history.
But really, ice cream?! Aren't there tons of ice cream companies? Big, huge, household names that rule the world. What makes Katie think that she can make something as amazing and special as those big guys with lots of fancy equipment and huge advertising budgets? I don't know, but I'm glad she did. Leona's is becoming very popular in our area. People who don't even know how to say it will ask for it!
Thanks, Katie, for living the dream. Thank you for being unique. Thank you for using your issues to change the world, or at least our part of it. We are happier because you did.
