“GOT CONCRETE?  GET MILKSHAKE”

BENEFITS PHILA. VIETNAM VETERANS MEMORIAL

Some of the young men fighting in Vietnam were fighting for one yard at a time.  646 of them did not make it home and their names are on the wall at the Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial (Spruce St. & Columbus Blvd.). Now they need our help. We are fighting for one yard of concrete at a time. The Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial needs over 140 yards and is asking everyone to donate one yard.  Only one yard. If 100 people to do this for the veterans, we can make a significant contribution towards their deserving project. A yard of concrete costs $135. If you or anyone you know wishes to help out please send a donation. As a thank you for  the Franklin Fountain will provide all yard donors with a FREE Thick Milkshake at The Franklin Fountain.

Confectionately Yours -
The Berley Brothers, Eric and Ryan

The Culinary Institute of America

Bauman’s Old Fashioned Cider Press

baumans-ciderpressBauman’s started in 1892 when John W. Bauman purchased a cider press and operated it with the steam engine in his carriage manufacturing shop. Soon he began cooking apple butter for farmers of the community. Now in its third generation, Bauman’s Apple Butter Factory is still a family operation in the Nineteenth Century village of Sassamansville.

Theo Chocolate Manufacturing Tour and Plant, Seattle, WAtheochocolate

Theo Chocolate, the First Certified Fair Trade, Organic Chocolate in the US, operates using restored German equipment in an old Brewery Building in Seattle.

theo-factorytour
The Factory Tour inside was very advanced, yet inclusions are added by hand to every single chocolate bar. Mainly a wholesaler, Theo has now become ubiquitous in specialty Supermarkets and is no longer carried at Shane’s due to oversaturation. Their chocolates are good, but their confections bought onsite are the real draw.
