This ice cream company will be successful.
I know this for a few reasons:
The charming alliterative name, the location in the small mountain town of Carbondale and the co-founders, Anders and Ben, are as handsome as can be.
Also, during our junior year of high school Anders Nordblom and Ben Mawhinney and I were in the same 10-day, 26 mile winter camping adventure group.
The natural elements have a way of exposing true character. And these guys are as strong as NH granite and as sweet as maple syrup.
With no tarps for tents, blowing snow and -20 nights Anders and Ben broke trail, kept up morale and discussed philosophical questions around the campfire.
One day Anders snowshoed through the fresh powder (quads of steel) to the top of White Face, a 4000 ft peak in New Hampshire, dropped his backpack at the summit and hiked back down to carry a backpack for a struggling group member.
Ben herded the group from the back making sure we had what we needed, feet were dry, peanut butter and water were consumed and hippy-hoppy songs were sung.
The perfectly complimentary team.
Projects started by Ben and Anders are like ideas that go into the gym to work out their big muscles for body-building competitions. The status of the idea is looked at from each angle, discussed, planned, fed, watered, sheltered, shouted-about, massaged back to health when strained and excitedly sent into the world in a little tiny spandex outfit.
Okay. Check out Carbondale Creamery. These guys are very creative in the kitchen.
P.S- I’m predicting the number one seller with be called Messy Jessy
