Emery's Ice Cream--A Taste of Nostalgia (Corydon, Indiana) @VisitIndiana #Indiana
Looking for old time ice cream and candy shop? Then definitely check out Emery's Ice Cream in Corydon, Indiana. This nostalgic soda shop takes you back to a time of happy days and has been a Southern Indiana tradition since 1937.
An ice cream counter with metal stools lines one side of the shop and baskets full of 10¢ and up candies line the other side. I found many of the candies I grew up with: Mary Jane, Chick-o-Stick, Bazooka gum, and the cigarette sticks (boy times have changed for the better on that one). They even had a Coca Cola cooler with bottled sodas, many old-fashioned, such as NeHi and Stewarts.
The ice cream counter was serviced by a friendly and knowledgeable server who made it a point to please the customers. Sundaes, malts, floats, cones--you name it and it was yours.
The shop itself was immaculate. It was adorned with tons collectable characters and cartoon figurines and vintage posters and artwork. I would hate to be the one dusting that place, but whoever does, does an excellent job.
We really enjoyed this trip! Can't you tell from the girl's faces?
