If you know our family, you know we’re big seltzer drinkers. So you can imagine our delight when we discovered Green Bee, a Brunswick, Maine-based soda company, recently launched a new line of sparkling water. These unsweetened drinks are infused with fresh squeezed juice, so you get lots of great flavor without added sugar. Sparkling water fans can choose from wild blueberry, tangy lemon and a zippy ginger. These great flavors sound especially enticing with the warmer days coming our way!

One of the highlights of spring for Cute Potato is the opening of Toots Ice Cream in North Yarmouth for the season. Fans patiently wait on line for decadent homemade ice cream served from a little red caboose. Owner Martha Grover-Lambert and her team have been making great ice cream for nearly 10 years using milk from Garelick Farms. There are always new flavors available, but we especially like Coconut Willy (coconut with Needhams), Pig Pen (coffee with crushed Oreos), and Candy Store Floor (vanilla with Butterfinger, Nestle Crunch, Twix, and caramel cups).

For those who can’t live without Toots all winter, Martha offers ice cream sundae parties for up to 10 people. MP loved this idea, and thought it would be fun to have a few friends over to celebrate Valentine’s Day with some special treats from Toots.

Last weekend, the team said good-bye to summer in true, Cute Potato fashion. We camped at Recompense, visited Toots Ice Cream (twice), hiked Bradbury Mountain, and cheered the Portland Sea Dogs with friends. One of our favorite outings was a visit to The Scarborough Marsh Audubon. Families with kids 4-up can rent canoes by the hour and explore the marsh (life jackets are available, too). CP#2 loved being in the canoe. He paddled for a few minutes, and then left the steering to Mom. We both had fun spotting sandpipers on shore. (more…)

We’re fortunate to have many wonderful homemade ice cream establishments in Maine, but if we had to choose one, Toots in North Yarmouth would be our favorite. Cones, shakes and sundaes are served from an old caboose. The creative flavors are many and fun.

Just a few of the flavors available at Toots

This season, MP is loving Chocolate Whoopie Pie – a heavenly mix of chocolate ice cream, whoopie pie pieces, marshmallow and fudge swirls. CP#2 has ventured from plain chocolate to Chocolate Dipped Strawberry. DP tried decadent Extremely Black Raspberry, which is made of black raspberry ice cream, swirls of black raspberry puree and chunks of dark chocolate. And CP #1 likes the kids’ classic: vanilla with rainbow sprinkles.

Another favorite flavor is Pig Pen: coffee ice cream with Oreo cookies

After we devour our cones, the team likes to tour the Toots family farm, which is home to some enormous cows (we’re talking Guinness Book of World Records). The kids love to visit with the bunnies, sheep, goats and check out all the impressive farm equipment. If we let them, CP#1 and #2 could easily spend hours running around Toots.

Usually we coax our duo into leaving with the promise that we’ll be back again. And we will, happily, for the rest of the summer.
