Candy, Ice Cream & Treats

A number of sweet products are made right here in Blair County. Several candy companies make their candy here. We have the Boyer Mallow Cup as well as the original Peanut Butter Meltaway made by Gardners Candies. Benzels has been making pretzels for generations. Plus we also have several unique ice-cream parlors, including one next to a candy history museum, another with a family-fun center and one is located at the dairy where the ice-cream is made!  We invite you to try one of the many fresh homemade treats made here!
