Southern Candy Store - Ice Cream in Lancaster, PA

Glass display of ice cream flavors in Lancaster, PA candy store

You scream. I scream. We all scream for ice cream. Perhaps you've heard this old-time jingle. Well we have news, and it's not old-time, it's up-to-date. You can now buy ice cream at our River Street Sweets • Savannah's Candy Kitchen franchise in Lancaster, PA. That's right, although you may not think of us as an ice cream store since we're primarily known for our homemade fudge, saltwater taffy, pralines, and made-from-scratch pecan pies, we've now added ice cream to our offerings. And you may not think of us as an Amish country attraction since we were born and raised in Georgia where our tradition stretched back to 1978 and a boy's dream of making fudge, we have moved north to Pennsylvania Dutch country.

So now you can take a break from your day of exploring tranquil roads bordered by old-time barns and farmhouses to get your fix of ice cream. But not just any ice cream, Lancaster ice cream in flavors that will jolt your taste buds out of laid-back vacation mode yet retain the wholesome down-home aura of this beautiful area of Pennsylvania.

We're talking about old-time vanilla Lancaster ice cream and comfy cushy banana pudding ice cream. But if you're up for something a bit more decadent, how about birthday cake ice cream or cookie-n-cream sprinkled through with crunchy sweet chocolate cookie crumbs. Now if it's crunch you're after, you'll want to try a few scoops of our rocky road Lancaster ice cream piled high in one of our freshly made waffle cones. And while our waffle cones suggest the simplicity of the Amish tradition, you can up the ante by opting for a chocolate-dipped cone.

But you may want to forego cones for cups if you feel partaking of our creamy lushly rich gelato since as they say -- you should never gild a lily. So you can enjoy flavors like tiramisu and pralines-n-cream or key lime pie in our ice cream and leave the gilding to the glazed pecans, chocolate loggerheads, or world-famous pralines you bring home with you to remind you of your time spent in Pennsylvania Dutch country.
