August ’15



Natural Colors and Flavorings

Since May, nearly all of our House-Made Chocolates, Ice Creams, and Toppings are free of artificial flavors and colors. We mix our colorings from a primary palette that derives from Spirulina Blue, Annatto Yellow, and Red Beet Juice – plants in the real world!

We Salute our Fathers and Forefathers this Summer

Wertz Candies was founded in Lebanon, Pennsylvania in 1931 by Nora & William H. Wertz. A decade later, the founders’ son William Wertz went on to serve his country in the Pacific Theatre during World War II as a Navy man while family members kept shop. Today, Wertz is owned and operated by a 3rd generation of Wertz brothers who maintain the rich traditions of hand-made chocolates, caramel corn, and their world-famous Opera Fudge, a Lebanon tradition.


Governor Rendell prefers Peach!

Last Friday, July 31st, ex-mayor and Governor Ed Rendell visited The Franklin Fountain with his family. As he waited patiently in long line, he proclaimed “Good Peach Ice Cream is sure hard to find,” and proceeded to order a cup of ours, made from local summer peaches. He was all smiles afterwards with owner Ryan Berley.

Ice Cream? Seabees Can Do!

In WWII sailors in the South Pacific outfitted a 50 gallon teakwood drum with machinery parts from a bulldozer, a generator, and a bomb-wrecked Jeep to make their own ice cream machine! “Why? Because ice cream is a symbol of home and tonic to morale.”
(National Dairy Product Corporation)
