BLUEberry Ice Cream

We have carefully crafted our homemade Blueberry Ice Cream with a luscious crop of juicy-plump local berries and we do believe that we have outdone ourselves this year.  We also offer this refreshing, summer flavor in Dairy-Free.


July Caramels

All of our Caramels are made with local dairy from grass-fed cows.  Make your pick patriotic, with a box of Blueberry, Raspberry, and Coconut Almond Caramels!


Fairy Floss

Fairy Floss (Cotton Candy) is back!  We’re kicking off July with Raspberry, Lime, Mint Chip, and Firework – studded with popping candy.

Liberty Bells

Ring in the Fourth of July with Liberty Bells!  Celebrate your patriotism with bean-to-bar Liberty Bell Bon Bons made onsite, Liberty Bell Lollipops, or molded Chocolate Liberty Bells.


Cocoa Brew Ice Cream

Inspired by our London Coffeehouse Cocoa Brew, this new flavor combines our Franklin Coffee Ice Cream with a swirl of house-made craft chocolate and house-roasted Cocoa Nibs for a nice crunch.  Pick up a scoop at the Chocolate Café!

Cacao Fruit Fancy Ice Pops

Cacao Fruit, the pulp that envelops cocoa beans inside the pod, tastes nothing like chocolate, more like a sweet citrus-y pear or apple.  We’ve frozen this tropical treasure into refreshing ice pops, available now in the Café freezer.


Historic Summers at Shane Confectionery

Did you know that the original owners of 110 Market Street supplemented their confectionery sales in the summer with fireworks?  This flamboyant trade card dates to the late 1800’s and helps connect us to our predecessors.
Learn more about the history of our building and the confectionery trade in America on our weekly tour, every Friday at 6:30 pm.

Mini-display Ice Screamers_wl

Ice Screamers

Ice Cream in the Era of Prohibition was the theme at the 34th Annual Ice Screamers’ convention.  Our Collections Manager, Laurel, put together a dynamic display on the ways ice cream and soda manufacturers capitalized on saloon and alcohol aesthetics in response to Temperance and Prohibition.
