Manning's Ice Cream will make its 8th appearance at the Rotary of the Abingtons Taste of the Abingtons, scheduled for Sept. 23 at Nichols Village Hotel and Spa. Jean Manning, owner, said it's a great event that shows what the Rotary stands for and what it does for those living in the Abingtons.
"We have a very loyal community, and this gives us the opportunity to remind people that our quality is as good as it has always been, if not better," Manning said.
The store will feature raspberry avalanche, brownie fudge and peanut butter pies. Manning said that they will even have a fall pie made with pumpkin and butter pecan ice cream. All of which are made with milk from Manning Farm Dairy cows, and the chocolate comes from Gertrude Hawk "because it's a quality company," Manning said.
According to Manning, Taste of the Abingtons is a way for the restaurants to put their best foot forward and bring specialty foods in. In the dairy farm's case, it's a way for them to remind people that they are not just ice cream and milk. They make cakes, yogurt, sherbet, ice cream and have even catered a wedding for 300 people in the past.
"The atmosphere of Taste of the Abingtons is the community coming together to socialize and enjoy an affordable meal in which you'll leave full. That's our dinner," Manning said.
