Photo a Day Challenge


No sojourn to Manitowoc is complete without a stop at Beerntsen’s, a candy and ice cream shop located on 8th Street since 1932.  John enjoyed a Boston Nut sundae and Lois a Chocolate Bud, both scrumptious treats served in tulip glasses overflowing with homemade ice cream, chocolate and marshmallow with fresh roasted nuts.  The original custom made  black walnut booths, candy cases and arches provided the perfect ambiance.

    Boy does that bring back memories. I’m soooo glad to see they’re still in business and the place doesn’t seem to have changed. Hope you took some Fairy Food back with you.

  11. the top image is so dreamy and comforting, just knowing a place like this is still around is sweet in every way. Perfectly presented as usual, a great pair of images.
