    I have a confession to make. I was having a little stress moment before hitting the Bay Elementary carpool line, and it made me weak, so I stopped in the new Blue Mountain Beach Creamery at the corner of 83 and 30A. :lol:

    Expresso ice cream. Possibly the best I have ever had- the texture was perfect- you know, firm enough that you have to tug it off the spoon with your mouth. Perfect creamy expresso flavor. I normally don't crave ice cream, but I will be craving this.

    They had mostly frozen yogurt today, and I tried the pineapple/orange, which was so refreshing and tasted like real fruit, but I had my heart set on ice cream. There were lots of fruit flavors and a crazy one made with Poptarts.

    Opening an ice cream business at the start of the fall is gutsy, and I admire these people! Instead of buying ice cream at the grocery, it will be great to buy fresh made-on-the-premises ice creams, frozen yogurts, and sorbets.

    It's gonna be a hot week- give this place a try!

    I can't wait to come back next summer and give it a try. I hardly ever buy ice cream at the grocery store. Then we all just sit around eating it. Not very good for the hips. But to stop in a fun shop and get some every so often makes it more special and fun.

    I'll give it a whirl in October. I don't usually go for ice cream much, but the espresso does sound good. Maybe it'll help with the hot flashes. :wave:

    Perhaps they've opened just in time to service that oh-so-special niche that starts up this time of year, every year, for 9 months:

    catering to Car Pool Stress :D

    I can't imagine enduring that scene 2X every day. Hats off to all you parents out there!

    I tried the ice cream last night and it was good. But i have to say i was shocked to pay $4 for a very small cup of ice cream.To be honest i almost walked out but the kids wanted ice cream. The large cup which wasn't even that big was $6. They had no cones either .Heck seaside ice cream shop is the same price with much more ice cream.As i said good product but pricing is way out of whack for blue mountain.

    New small business on 30a

    You must try Blue Mountain Creamery, located at the corner of 30A and route 83. Absolutely wonderful HOME MADE sorbets and ice creams, along with a premium brand ice cream offering. The home made sorbets are made with fresh fruit and are so refreshing!

    Great location for the beach goers at the end of the day! And how nice to be able to walk or bike down the road to get a tasty treat! You've got to try it!

    Help support a small business on 30A!

    So what are the prices in Seaside? Is the product as good as Blue Mountain Creamery? Maybe cones are in the future....as long as Walton County does not shut down a small business.

    The ice cream at either place in Seaside blows compared to Blue Mountain creamery. It's not even close.

    That is a very common misperception regarding ice cream. After all if it looks bigger it must be....right? No, not necessarily. It all depends on amount of air that is incorporated into the finished product. The more air that is "folded" in during the freezing process the more volume of the ice cream takes up. Most commercial ice cream is upwards of 100% air. Therefore if you purchase 2 scoops you are actually paying for 1 scoop of air. You can really tell once you purchase the ice cream and it immediately begins to melt and collapse.
    We at Blue Mountain use a very low over run technique (less air) and whenever possible we stay away from artificial dyes, flavor extracts and fillers all of which are inexpensive ways of "bulking up" ice cream and fooling the consumer. We make all of our yogurts, sorbets and ice creams in small "micro" batches so they are fresh every time.

    As most of you all know we are a very new establishment. We love the feedback and appreciate all the local support. We have big plans for next summer and are using the off season to improve our shop and expand our line in order to fully satisfy our customers.

    Coming soon.....waffle cones.

    Thanks, Christine and Jed

    We were in yesterday and there were 3 people behind the counter (there were 6 of us and then two more groups of 2 walked in). Only 1 person was taking orders the other 2 were standing back talking. The one who was taking orders acted like we were inconveniencing him by ordering anything. He rolled his eyes several times and was not friendly at all. The portions did seem small, but it ended up being enough. If the service had been friendlier we would probably go back, but it is hard to go to a place that doesn't make you feel welcome. There are plenty of other options.

    Good point guys, but would recommend next time you have customers who are not happy with service and/or product, invite them back for complimentary order and resolve the grievance with them then. I love your place
