Billy Sussky and George Schenck’s Hoodoo ice cream shop will bring Creole cream cheese ice cream and other flavors to 405 North Columbia Street in historic downtown Covington this month, reports Mic.Com.
Creole cream cheese, a tangy fresh cheese that was once popular in New Orleans had fallen off the radar for a while. Though Mississippi’s Mauthe’s Progress Milk Barn is the only company producing the cheese commercially, it’s not uncommon to find it in ice cream in New Orleans — It’s one of Creole Creamery’s perennial flavors too.
Sussky’s grandfather was a big fan of Creole cream cheese and inspired that ice cream flavor. During the past year, Sussky has sold it at the Covington Farmers Market.
Other interesting Hoodoo flavors to get excited about are the orange nib (a little like mint chocolate chip, but with orange), cream corn and berry, and strawberry Creole cheesecake.
