When I heard this bit of scoop, my jaw dropped. I was told that Erikson's had been sold to Kimball Farm. Is your jaw dropping, too? Okay, take some deep breaths. It's not true. I contacted Erikson's via their Facebook page, and this is what they said:
"No we did not sell to Kimballs or anyone else. We will reopen for the 2015 season as Eriksons Ice Cream as we have been for 78 years."
We look forward to seeing them in their 79th year!
