Philly ice cream lovers rejoice: our very own Franklin Fountain just announced they're launching their own ice cream subscription service!
YES! This means that whenever you have a hankering for ice cream you don't HAVE to go all the way to Old City to get THE BEST ice cream! It'll be right in your own home and you get two pints a month.
Yes, the new service is called the Ice Cream Explorer's Club! The cool thing (no pun intended) is that this membership gives you access to a LOT of choices which includes "flavors not usually available at Franklin Fountain, Franklin Ice Cream Bar next door, or the three seasonal outposts at the Delaware River waterfront."
"The Franklin Ice Cream Department has always been inspired by Benjamin Franklin, the tinkerer, the innovator, the scientist," said co-owner Eric Berley.
"Beyond many of our classic, seasonal and featured flavors we're known for, there are three story themes, which underpin much of our trial work as well: historically-rooted 'Forgotten Flavors,' culturally-driven 'Ethnographic Flavors' and farm-inspired 'Ingredient Flavors."
To join the price is $48 for three months, $92 for six months and $184 for 12 months. Each month, members will get one exclusive flavor and a seasonal flavor. Subscriptions are pick-up only on the 1st and the 15th of the month at Franklin Ice Cream Bar (112 Market St.) for ice cream, and at Shane Confectionery (110 Market St.) for chocolate bars.
