Burnett Family Peach Ice Cream

For those who have been asking for a new photo of John and Abbie Duggar, we have one to share, and there is an interesting story that goes with it.

On Saturday, July 20th, the couple spent time in Abbie's hometown of Stratford, Oklahoma, for the Stratford Peach Festival, an annual event that has been part of the town's DNA for more than 40 years. Among other things, visitors enjoyed live music, a car show, vendor booths, and plenty of fresh peaches and peach desserts. Stratford is home to multiple peach orchards and calls itself the "peach capital of the world."

John and Abbie weren't just visitors to the festival. They were there to help Abbie's family sell its popular peach ice cream. The Burnetts' peach ice cream is a crowd favorite. This year, they made and sold more than 100 gallons!

  1. I love peach ice cream. It's my favorite. The stores where I live rarely have it.

  2. Love peach ice-cream. Howard Johnson was always a favorite. Breyers and Baskin Robbins did sell peach but never see it any more.

    1. Yes I noticed too.

    2. I was thinking the same thing, maybe it’s because I’ve never seen her with her hair up.

      Delete
    3. I thought the same thing!! And that made me laugh to think of everyone scrutinizing her picture to see if she looks pregnant!

    4. So does John, she didn't need to loose weight but he did, maybe she joined him in a health kick just to keep him company and encourage him.

      Delete
    5. I thought that too. Hope everything is alright.

      Delete
    6. So does John...maybe they are on a fitness kick.

      Delete
    7. 1:09, she doesn’t look sickly thin๐Ÿ™„ She and John probably just decided to diet together since he needed to loose some weight.

      Delete
    8. I agree with poster above - it’s having her hair up.

    9. Time time 5:33AM Thurs 7/25/19
      Abbie lost a lot of weight.

      Delete
    10. I lost weight in my first pregnancy in the first 6 months due to morning sickness (and in the first trimester+ in the 3 subsequent pregnancies). All I could eat was strawberry banana smoothies at 3 in the afternoon and maybe a small meal for supper, breakfast was a few saltines. Hope she is not suffering too bad with morning sickness. We have all been there! Love to The beautiful Duggar Extended Family.

  6. They look great. So nice to hear about them again.

  7. Lovely picture! Does Abbie's family have a peach orchard? Do they make the ice cream from scratch? It must be a delicious flavour. That was a lot of ice cream to sell. Eileen

  8. Peach is my favorite flavor, yet I can’t find it at 42 flavors, Ben & Jerry’s orothrr placrs. Guess I’ll head to OK next July๐Ÿ˜„

    1. I meant 31 flavors/Baskin Robbins. What do these companies have against peach??๐Ÿ˜„

      Delete
    2. Ben & Jerry's had peach for 5 years in the late 80's. Lots of other companies, big and small, still make it. Remember, peach season in the US is short, peaches are very perishable, they bruise easily in transport, and peach ice cream is not everyone's favorite. I can see why a company would choose not to make that flavor, if it won't sell well and there are problems with ingredient cost or handling.

  9. Nice to see these guys. However, if they want to lead a quieter life away from tv cameras & publicity, I for one commend them for it. Hope they are happy together, they certainly look it. Enjoy your life as a married couple, keep having fun adventures, & enjoy getting to know each other more each day.

  10. It’s great to see them! Thank you

  11. Johns entire face smiles when he is with Abbie. You can see his happiness in his eyes!!!!

  12. It’s about time for an update!

  13. It's just wonderful seeing a couple so happy and in love like JD and Abbie.

    ReplyDelete
  14. They look so happy! Especially John, he’s always looked happier since he met Abbie! I just love those good old love stories

    ReplyDelete
  15. Some couples just glow and they definitely have it going on! :) So sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  16. She looks thinner. Maybe morning sickness causing her to lose weight??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Leave it alone! If I were them I would never have a baby just to spite all the people who keep asking and prodding them.

      Delete
    2. Oh my. Why do Duggar women ALWAYS "look pregnant"?

      Delete
    3. Or maybe she just decided to loose some weight?

      Delete
    4. Why or why do we have to analyze every woman in the Duggar family? Please just enjoy the pictures and write-ups.

      Delete
    5. Anon 6:48. I agree. Remember all that prodding from her sisters when Jinger didn't get pregnant right after the wedding? Who cares when or if they have a baby?

      Delete
    6. 7:03..maybe because they always are pregnant?? It’s the entire basis of their theology and reality tv show.

      Delete
    7. Not every woman wants a baby. Also, wouldn't being pregnant make you GAIN weight?

      Delete
    8. We have yet to see a Duggar woman who doesn't want a baby. It isn't uncommon to lose weight in the first trimester due to morning sickness.

      Delete
    9. And so the pregnancy speculation begins. Just because she has married into the Duggar family does not mean she wishes to be permanently pregnant. Maybe she went on a healthy eating kick to keep John company, as clearly he has lost weight too.

      Delete
    10. 3:24, not necessarily. Some women actually lose weight from being sick all the time.

      Delete
    11. Not really I lost alot of weight with my second child

      Delete
    12. 3:24- It would be a strange situation, indeed, if a Duggar didn't want to have a child and/or married someone who didn't want one. Wouldn't that be a deal breaker in their faith?

      Delete
    13. @7:28- The Duggars have a loyal fan base and TV show for one reason only- their remarkable fertility. It shouldn't come as any surprise that fans are always looking for signs of pregnancy.

      Delete
    14. Anon 8:14. Exactly. No one would marry into the Duggar family without expecting to have numerous children. That's why fans are always claiming the married women are pregnant.

      Delete
    15. 6:48, that would be extremely petty.

      Delete
    16. With her being a nurse I'm sure she knows how not to get pregnant. Not everyone wants to get pregnant right away or to keep popping out kids. Plus coming from a family where mom kept having babies maybe he doesn't want any. Let them enjoy being young. There's plenty of time to have a baby or babies IF they want to.

      Delete
    17. I doubt they're tampering with "God's plan" to get babies.

      Delete
    18. Anon 8:41. lol. I suspect there's been a bit of tampering going on with Jiner and Jill, but they're not going to admit it.

      Delete
    19. Abbie was thin to begin with. She had no real weight to lose, most likely effects of first trimester of pregnancy. Lord bless her and help her thru this pregnancy.

      Delete
  17. my favorite couple! glad they avoid the spotlight and just keep loving life together!

  18. Is Abbie working?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. She hasn’t said

      Delete
    2. No she isn’t. I’m sure I saw John was supporting her nursing skills, but encouraged her to stay home after marriage.

      Delete
    3. 9:10 Why on earth would a husband encourage their wife to stay home and not work if they don't have any kids?

      Delete
    4. Why would a husband not want his wife to work? She's a nurse. I could see if they had a child, but with no children at home, that's crazy. I actually know of 2 couples where the wife was a nurse, hubby worked daylight she worked overnight. That way a parent was at home with the kids at all times.

      Delete
    5. Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joy, Kendra and Lauren all stayed at home and didn't work after marriage. Jinger and Lauren didn't/won't even have a baby until 1.5 years after marriage.

      Delete
    6. @8:15,they didn't work before marriage either.

      Delete
    7. Anon 6:01. Abbie is an anomaly among the Duggar women. She actually had a job before marriage. None of the others have ever held a job outside the home (other than appearing on reality TV).

      Delete
  19. I love peaches! That is quite a feat, to make 100 gallons of ice cream. Sounds like a fun project, and it's good to see John and Abbie looking happy and well.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sounds nice. I wonder if they brought any ice cream home with them. I hear Kendra loves ice cream.

    ReplyDelete
  21. My husband's favorite ice cream is peach ice cream.

    3. They're married

    4. Lol, 2:31, I don't think either of them are candidates for hot flashes! ๐Ÿ˜„

      Delete
    5. 2:31, they’re not going to have a hot flash after touching each other long enough to take a picture๐Ÿ™„

  23. 100 gallons? That's some serious ice cream making. No wonder they dropped out of sight for a while.

  24. Couple of questions for Abbie~
    1. How do you keep your curly hair from losing it's definition overnight and how do you refresh/reactivate the curls in the morning?
    2. Is you hair frizz free?
    Also, if you don't mind, I would appreciate it if you would share you're hair care routine!
    Your hair is so beautiful!
    Thank you so much!!

    2. Hi Lily & Ellie,

      Thanks!
      I've seen that post and now have these questions.

    3. Not to sound rude, but I have curly hair and have had all my questions answered about how to take care of it by looking online. There is lots and lots of info depending on your type of hair and what you want your results to look like.

      Delete
    4. Rachel- I understand your post. We have a list of Abbie's products, but not really how she uses them (which would be more helpful for curly girls to know). Oklahoma's pretty hot during the summer and I'd like to know how Abbie achieves frizz-free because my daughter has thick, curly hair too. LOL

  25. Love Peach ice cream; but isn’t Georgia the peach capital???

    1. Yes. But anyone can make that claim.

    2. In my humble opinion, S. Carolina peaches are the best!

      Delete
    3. 9:45, Georgia is recognized as the peach state, it’s not about “making a claim”.

  32. I bet that was so much fun!!! Selling over 100 gallons wow, that must be delicious ice cream. We love peach ice cream at my house and if we lived near that festival, we surely would of been one of the people buying a gallon or two. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  34. I love Abbie and John David Duggar so cute and funny and sweet love Clara

  35. Congratulations I had an idea I am sure you probably thought about - there are med flight companies that hire pilots and nurses to transport sick people to and from treatments and medical appointments. Since you meet both qualifications, it would be a way for Abbie to use her nursing skills and the both of you to work together. Hope you have smooth sailing through your pregnancy.
