The Quality Dairy store on South Cedar Street in Lansing.

I’ll tell you what…we’re becoming QD converts.  J and I left Grumpy’s Diner on Mt. Hope and headed over to Cedar Street.  J wanted something warm.  These single digit highs are definitely not fun. 

We were heading towards McDonald’s on South Cedar when we came up to a Quality Dairy.  J asked if they had coffee.  I said I’m sure they did….I knew they had hot chocolate.  She asked if I wanted a hot chocolate and I was so frozen I could barely answer, but I managed to unfreeze my jaw enough to say yes, so J said it it was better to support a local business than a McDonald’s and of course, I agreed.  I made a quick right into the Quality Dairy parking lot.

The particular Quality Dairy is on the corner of Cedar and Greenlawn Avenue.  I don’t know if I’ve just never paid attention or of this store is bigger.  We were in the market for something hot.  I spotted the hot chocolate machine and grabbed a cup.  Other than hot chocolate, they had flavored cappuccino, regular coffee and a few other coffee flavors.  I went with a 20 oz. hot chocolate.  J mixed the fat free vanilla cappuccino and hot chocolate in a little bit bigger cup.

As we were topping off our drinks, we noticed the cookie/donut case.  I’ve seen those at other Quality Dairy stores, but this might be the first time I’ve ever really looked at one.  There were a lot of unique options and J kind of surprised me by not getting one.  She had a look on her face like she saw something she liked, but she refrained from actually reaching in the case.

As we were checking out, another baked good caught her eye.  I don’t remember what it was, but she began salivating again, but again, passed and just paid for our drinks. 

The two drinks were just over two bucks.  I don’t know what it is about hot chocolate, but I can’t drink the damn thing without burning my tounge.  J says it’s the lids, but even when I take the lid off, I burn myself.  I put it in my cup holder and waited until I got home and by then, it was cool enough to handle. 

I was skeptical at first.  I couldn’t see what QD had over 7-Eleven, but the last few weeks, we’ve been stopping in a little more and I think I finally get it.  If I’d just listen to the commentors that have spent their whole lives here instead of arguing with them that it’s just another convenience store, I would have found some more deliciousness much sooner.

Mutter feels particularly close to the female Virtuosi, the youngest of whom is a 14-year-old Dutch violinist.
Mutter has embraced what she thinks of as a ‘very noble role’ of passing along what she
has learned in a lifetime on the stages of concert halls and festivals around
the world. ) She noted that some Mutter Virtuosi leave
their actual families behind in order to study in Germany.
