Ballyhoo Ice Cream and Candy
West Pittston, PA
Places to Eat & Drink: Treats
A Destination for All Ages
This old-fashioned ice cream and candy shop in West Pittston brings out the kid in all of us. Ballyhoo features high-quality, hand dipped hard ice cream, yogurt and Italian ice. Their tasty treat menu also features soda shop favorites like egg creams, banana splits, sundaes and ice cream floats. And you just can’t beat the delightfully crunchy homemade waffle cones or the thick, creamy shakes.
Don’t Forget About the Candy
Ballyhoo is also home to a nostalgia-inducing 100-year-old glass candy case. The classic five and dime candy counter features hundreds of popular candies. You can choose from old favorites like Necco Wafers and Boston Baked Beans, or newer items like Warheads and Juicy Drop Pops. Bring a pocketful of change like in the old days and purchase candy by the piece, or buy it in bulk for parties. And if you’re having trouble finding a specific candy, let Ballyhoo know and they’ll track it down for you.
Stop in and Step Back in Time
As if the delicious ice cream and candy weren’t enough, Ballyhoo’s whole building is a living mini history museum. Stop in and check out artifacts sourced both locally and from afar.
