We stopped at the ice cream store with my nephews and asked for four ice cream cones. I guess the soft serve flavors are too much for the one girl because she ordered two more employees to assist making two soft serve cones, while another employee served us two hard ice cream cones.

This fudge is so awesome that last Christmas I mail ordered it for gifts. Our trip to the area would not be complete without a stop to this excellent shop.

A fun place to stop for a sweet treat. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. My kids loved the ice cream, of course, and we all enjoyed fudge. Yum!

We have visited this place on previous trips - the owners are very friendly and patient with our browsing. The almond joy fudge is to die for! I got one piece and ended up sharing it with everyone I mentioned it to after they heard what it was.
