candy & ice cream...doesn't get any better

Stop #2:  Wilton Candy Kitchen - Wilton, IA
I have to say that that this was one of my favorite stops of the weekend...but for what other reason, ICE CREAM!  Actually there were many great things about the stop...
history, great personality, nostalgia, ice cream and
chocolate malted milk balls. 

We got to meet the owner, George Nopoulos...talk about a character! Witty and charming. Watching him effortlessly whip up the sundaes and malts was quite amazing. He told us stories about famous visitors such as Gregory Peck & Brooke Shields and we got the chance to visit with the locals as well. 

 Vintage clock...gotta love it.

The Wilton Candy Kitchen is the oldest ongoing ice cream parlor and fountain shop in the country. Wilton, Iowa has a precious treasure...
