Rob Williams: Another Sign Summer's Ending

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

In one month, on Sept. 20, Putz’s Creamy Whip will be closed for the season.  It’s been around since 1938 for good reason: silky smooth creamy whips.

The business started by Constantine and Anna Putz coming out of the devastating Depression. The couple first selling pies and baked good door to door.  The ice cream business came a short time later.

The business moved its current site in the 1950’s. The two machines which make the creamy dairy whip were bought in 1954 and 1955.  They’re still being used today.

Putz’s creamy whip isn’t short on family tradition being run by the same family who started it.

It is also tradition for many Tri-State families, many adults remember visiting Putz’s when they were kids.  Many of them now bringing their own kids.

My summer is not complete without a visit to Putz’s.  I’m sure other people feel the same.

It’s kind of like Cincinnati chili.  You don’t get it, unless you call Cincinnati home.
