The Medd Brothers Made This Photo Possible

The Medd Brothers invented the Blizzard and the machine that makes them.

The machine is still licensed by them and made in East Moline.

The Blizzard is a Jackson family favorite, but I normally get a large cone to share with everyone.

So Warren Buffet owes them big time, but the Medd Brothers owe Lady Margaret Thatcher. In her first job as a chemist, Thatcher helped develop the emulsifiers that made soft-serve ice cream possible.
