There are only three words to describe Franklin Fountain.


I’m not kidding folks, they are really that good.

Franklin Fountain opened the summer of 2004 and since then has been serving homemade ice cream to the masses. They aim to serve an experience steeped in ideals, drizzled with drollery, and sprinkled with the forgotten flavors of the American past. It really is like stepping back to an era of soda shops!

I admit, when I first found out we were getting the opportunity to stop by the Franklin Fountain, I had no idea what it was. A quick google search promptly showed me what I had been missing these past 7 years! Pictures upon pictures of delicious sundaes and ice cream really hooked this pregnant momma in!
The only bad thing about the whole visit was deciding on what to get?! There are just too many choices.

We finally all decided to try something different so we could sample! We tried..

…the Stock Market Crunch…

…Mt. Vesuvius…

…Homemade Hot Fudge.
As soon as we were served our choices, it got very, very quiet. To say we enjoyed our sundaes is understatement!
The next time you are in Philly, you have to add this to your must do list! We ran into a couple on their way to Baltimore who hopped off 95 just to stop in for the ice cream! It’s really that good. Franklin Fountain is open 7 days a week, 11-Midnight!
Thanks so much to our host, Grant, for our delicious treat!
