Description

Stew Leonard’s started as a small, seven-employee dairy store in 1969 and today comprises four grocery stores and close to 2,000 employees. Beyond dairy (it has its own milk processing plant), Stew Leonard's has expanded to sell meats, fish, produce, bakery, cheese, and wine. Unlike traditional grocery stores that sell an average 30,000 items, each Stew Leonard's store carries only 2,000 items, chosen for freshness, quality, and value. It’s often called the “supermarket Disneyland” because of the costumed characters, scheduled entertainment, petting zoo, and animatronics featured at the stores.

Additional stores are located in Norwalk, Danbury, and Newington, Connecticut.

Best Super-fatted, Pasteurized Heavy Cream (2010)

Stew Leonard’s starts with a higher-fatted cream, which is 40 percent butterfat, then heats it gently in a lower-temperature pasteurization process that preserves its fresh cream flavor. The result may last only a couple of weeks, but it’s so lush that longevity is out of the question.
