DILLY'S...ice cream memories!!

This is Dilly's. My absolute favorite childhood memory of an ice cream shop!!! It has been around ever since I can remember when I was a little girl. Dilly's sits right at the base of the Delaware river bridge, on the Penna. side and each & every time we went back home for a visit, Mom and Dad would make the special stop for us. (probably because of the two wild kids in the back seat jumping up and down screaming) My favorite part? The JIMMIES! (aka sprinkles) We'd get a tall, winding chocolate cone and they'd roll it in~ what seemed to be~ a vat of sprinkles... On a family trip a few years ago, we were lucky enough to have taken my kids back to Dilly's~ not sure that they got why it was such a big deal to me, but oh well... just another ice cream place, right? WRONG!!! It was really sad, though... we just missed it being open for the season, by like a week. Waaaaa! I was heartbroken!!! But then, I spotted someone inside and was actually able to speak to a manager? just to tell him how much I loved the place! (and a bit more blah,blah,blah) He said to me "Hold on just a minute." He went inside and came back out with a T-shirt for me! Guess what it says?! I love Dilly's!!!! So true, so true! God willing, one day we'll return! xoxox

This happened to us with our favorite hamburger joint in our hometown, that was really upsetting as we ALWAYS eat there when visiting.

Hi,
That was a great childhood memory. If I'm ever in that area I now will do my best to visit Dilly's.
