Mom said she passed by there everyday on her way to school, but never went in, because they were a poor family and she had no money. It was a joy to treat her on this day!
They make their own ice cream and still have an old fashioned soda fountain inside, where you can order a 'black and white' (any of you remember what that is?), a malt or a sundae of any flavor! Here's the soda menu. It should bring back a few memories if you have ever been to a soda fountain.
They also make their own candy! Their taffy chews are my favorite--peanut butter, caramel or peppermint including many other flavors! This does not even mention their handmade chocolates and truffles! My first husband, now deceased, used to bring home heart shaped boxes of chocolates on Valentines Day every year. One big box for me--all milk chocolate--and a small box for each of our kids! What a memory!

Although I know that you cannot taste the goodies, please enjoy the tour of the interior, as it is a treat in itself with its quaint pink, black and white decor, and painted candy ceilings! Enjoy!
|Another favorite--the chandelier!|
and on a hot day, besides ice cream, you need an old world fan:
Sorry that you were not with us to sample the treats, but you can order some at the Dewar's website! Or here's their Facebook page. You won't be disappointed!
