R.I.P Brown's Velvet Ice Cream!

According to the owner of The Creole Creamery in New Orleans, Kemps will no longer make Brown's Velvet ice cream. A very sad day for ice cream lovers in New Orleans. First introduced into New Orleans in 1905, Brown's Velvet was acquired by Kemps in 1993. It was THE ice cream for generations of New Orleanians. The sight of those red, white and blue containers was a cause for celebration in our household. Remember the little, individual containers we'd open then fold the top to use as a scooper? Brings back a lot of good childhood memories. Another "ain't der no more." I will miss their one-of-a-kind Creole Cream Cheese flavor. R.I.P Brown's Velvet ice cream.
