You'll Love Our Flavors
An amazing culinary delight. You’ll love the flavors!
CLOSED for the WINTER 2017-18.
The shop has moved out of the friendly market location. We will be looking for a new location in the next few months.
It has been a tremendous pleasure serving so many wonderful people. We enjoy making award winning ice cream and look forward to what the future brings in Northern Kentucky.
Opened September 1, 2013 in The Friendly Market, Florence, KY by Colonel Don Lambert. Col. Don has a lifelong passion and experience making ice cream. His first memory of ice cream making was around 6 years old cranking the old home ice and salt ice cream freezer.
As years advanced and techniques improved, he progressed to making award winning ice cream. In November 2013 the Colonel won the prestigious “Iron Scoop” ice cream flavor innovation competition at the National Ice Cream Retailers Assoc. convention in St. Louis. In 2014 the Colonel won the 1st prize blue ribbon for “Winners’ Circle Dutch Chocolate” and 2nd prize ribbons for “Signature Vanilla” and “Dark Chocolate.”
Today The Colonel’s Creamery makes super premium robust flavors of American ice cream. New innovative (sometimes exotic) flavors are introduced regularly along with excellent flavors you would expect. Come taste the All Star fun. Many say it is Cincinnati area’s best ice cream.
