Quotes Rewritten: Who wants to go on a road trip?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on March 14th, 2013

Charles Kuralt was a journalist best known for his “On the Road” segment which aired in the 60s and 70s on the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite. In the segment, Kuralt hit the road in a motor home and avoided the highways in favor of the nation’s back roads in search of the best slices of life that America had to offer.

We’ve taken his quote above and modified it slightly. His “burger stands” idea sounds tasty, but we like ours a little better, don’t you?

    definitely the way to go!!!!!

  2. Ray Hand says:

    Thius is great except that the New ENgland area (of which I am a resident) would be difficult to traverse in the winter since most of our Ice Cream establishments are either closed or on shorter working hours.

  3. Lila says:

    Better than anything else I can think of. Get packed I’m ready.

  4. Andrea says:

    Great idea, unfortunately, the ice cream stands are few and far between today. Sure miss the “good old days”!

  5. donna joyce says:

    Ice Cream Stands sounds alot better, but like Andrea said, there are way to few these days….. probably could’ve inserted “stores that sell Turkey HIll ice cream” and been better off. lol!

  6. mary ann herrmann says:

    …i’m all for it. but, unfortunately, after two snowstorms
    with 2+ feet of snow and another on the way, a road trip is not
    in the near future. but one can “dream” and still indulge in
    TURKEY HILL in the warmth of my home for now. yes!!

  7. Nancy H Landas says:

    Charles, a brilliant man, said it well. I have tried to do that and have succeeded in the spring, summer, and fall, but never thought to share the idea. Rock on ice cream stands!!!

  8. Linda M Davis says:

    It would be nice to have ice truck, going around town & ring a bell. People would like to see them back again & so would the children. It was nice to run out & to the ice truck & pick what you wanted from the ice truck.

  9. MC says:

    old tyme values around.

  30. Caroline of Manalapan says:

    As a kid going up & down the East Coast we always stopped at the Orange Roof (Howard Johnson’s) with their 28 flavors. Its no longer in existence thus we now need the stars. I am sorry to say there are now only soft ice cream stands that do not compare to the great taste of TH.

  31. Debbie says:

    I sincerely believe that ice cream is one of our nation’s unsung heroes. Therefore, to journey across this great nation and pay homage to the icre cream stand is definitely an awsome idea.

  32. Howard says:

    As long as when we travel there is plenty of Turkey Hill products in the frig. and freezer.

Can’t wait to go and waiting for your invite.

    Turkey Hill is not sold everywhere so I’ll stay home. I just bought 4 large containers, my favorites: Strawberries n’ cream, Butter Pecan, Fudge Ripple and for Hubby Black Cherry! Drool everyone.

  39. Betts says:

    We just got Turkey Hill ice cream at our newly remodeled Fry’s Supermarket . Yummy. But they do not have my favorite Coffee flavor yet. Hope they get it soon! I tell everyone in the ice cream isle that Turkey Hill is to die for. Most people I run into say “Thanks, I’ll try some”.

  40. Linda S. says:

    My husband & I do a lot of hiking & biking, and we ALWAYS stop at some little ice cream stand in the little towns that we pass through. It is always interesting to meet the people in these towns, and to see how they eat their ice cream! We don’t all have the same habits of ice cream sundaes, etc. It can be quite the science!!!

  41. Ann King says:

    I am ready for that road trip. Just wait until I get my sun glasses and my large spoon and we can be on the road.

    sounds like a good idea to me. let’s go!

  43. Ellen says:

    One of our local ice cream stands (Winchester, Va.) is only open from March/April until October. I eagerly await it’s opening each year. I enjoy their Malts among other things, they are oh so yummy.

  44. RJayne says:

    already packed!!

  45. Melanie C. says:

    Lets go!

  46. Lois Sidelnick says:

    We traveled all 50 states in 8 years in our trailer. Loved it. But true, ice cream stands were few andfar between. Kept Turkey Hill in my freezer all the time. So good on a warm night watching the stars. Would do it again, but husband passed away.
    Can’t do it by myself. Darn!

  47. Harriet G. says:

    Sounds like a great idea to me!

  48. Paula Sauder says:

    Our family is going on a 2 week road trip west this summer. Main destination will be Yellowstone National Park. Maybe we’ll have to use this travel tip once we get to Wyoming. The four of us love ice cream and we all have our own favorite Turkey Hill flavors.

  49. Pam says:

    Let’s go; a good way to see all of our 50 states.

  50. Linda Savitz says:

    Sounds delicious. What could be better than anticipating the next delicious taste of a cool sensation in your mouth as you travel along a seanic country road.

  53. JOAN M says:

    I HAVEN SEEN A ICE CREAM STAND IN YEARS.

    I READ FOR A ROAD TRIP

  54. Jim in SOMD says:

    Do Turkey Hill Convenience Stores count as an ice cream stand?
    Anyway, what a great idea. With google maps to direct you, take a trip stopping at an Ice Cream Stand in every town along the route. Be it TH, DQ, B&R or a Mom/Pop you know that you will enjoy the trip.

  55. Anita Lucarelli McLean says:

    Did not mention, Charles Kurault had two different families, discovered after his death~~~one on one side of the country and another~~~~~~~~~~~~~~he must have thought he had the best of all worlds because of his travels~~~~~~~~~~very interesting life.

  56. alicelynne says:

    Just say when!!!

  57. Diane says:

    It’s funny, when my kids were little, my husband and I didn’t have alot of extra cash, so when we passed a ice cream store, we would look to various ways of distraction. But look out, when the tax check arrived,even the neighbors children would get treated to ice cream. I guess that is why my freezer has plenty now.

  58. Amber S. says:

    I’m all packed!

  59. Bev Harrison says:

    what a great idea

  60. Nancy N. says:

    Since I’m an icecreamaholic, that’s how I give directions!!! TH is on sale at Shoprite this week so of course I boought the maximum 4!!! Tried the Mango today- DELISH!!!

  61. SYL CHEROT says:

    have ice cream, will travel there.

  62. Lisa E says:

    sign me up

  63. Sandy says:

    I’m ready for a road trip!!! The best ice cream stands are always where the dairy cows are! For example, University of CT Dairy Bar in Storrs, CT & Rich Dairy Farm in Oxford,CT. These are only the local places, but I’ve traveled all around the U.S. and that seems to be the case!!!

  64. mildred says:

    Love, road trips. When you stop at ice creams stands , the ice cream is is alls differnt.You alls find that one has a better flavor, that is differnt.

  65. Marie says:

    Sounds good, except all the ice cream stands/stores around here close for the winter. I purchase TH and eat it in the comfort and warmth of my home during the winter months.
