Candy Clerk Choice:
Joey suggests the Cartridge Candy:
“It’s nostalgic for me because I grew up with my dad in the army. It’s also great fun for kids, because it’s two candies in one package – both a Pixie Stick-like sugar, and a gumball.”
To keep in stride with the Franklin Fountain (and the season), Shane’s now has White Chocolate Blueberry Fudge. It’s sweet creamy white chocolate fudge, with swirls of house-made blueberry jam.
