The Great Pumpkin Emerges from the Field!
This fresh Spiced Pumpkin Ice Cream with Kettle Cooked Caramel Sauce, Malt Powder, crunchy Salted Pecans with Whipped Cream and a dash of Cinnamon is cool comfort at its best.
From Scratch – Apple Pie
Mmm…real butter made with tart apples and crumble top, a la mode ice cream: Cinnamon, Caramel or Ginger. For a real twist, ask your soda jerk for a Hot Apple Pie Shake with hot caramel sauce and cold vanilla ice cream.
New Homemade Apple Cider Soda!
Fresh, Local Apple Cider is reduced on simmer to an amber elixir, while brown sugars bring out a natural nutty aroma. On these warm October Days, it’s more refreshing, easier to digest, and less sweet than the straight sweet stuff. “Bob” your straw into some Caramel Ice Cream for a “Caramel Apple Cider Float.”

We’d like to thank you for your continued patronage for ten years. We celebrated in September with music, games, ice cream history and antiques, a live cow, and, of course, ice cream & candy. A special thank you to those who participated in our Cow Pie Bingo Raffle, which raised over $300 for the W.B. Saul Agricultural High School.

“Seville” Orange Opera Creams
We spun Seville Orange Creams to celebrate Opera Philadelphia’s 40th Anniversary and to toast the performers in “The Barber of Seville.” Similar to a buttercream, these confections are made with local heavy cream in lieu of butter for a richer, silkier center. Sprinkled with Orange Blossom Water (made from Seville Oranges, of course!) and orange zest, we’ll continue making these specially flavored Opera Creams the year round!
