IMPRESSIONS: Blairstown’s Village Sundaes Brings a Crunchy and Sweet Dose of Family and Community Spirit to Main Street

Blairstown’s Village Sundaes, located at 27 Main Street, offers a plethora of delightful treats for the holidays. In addition to their full complement of dairy and non-dairy desserts from ice creams and vegan sorbets, they’ve always offered custom frozen pies and cakes to suit any occasion.

A surprise to tempt anyone venturing into their sweet palace is the many different freeze-dried candies offered. To try one, is to get hooked, even if you’ve never had a sweet toooth. Perfect stocking stuffers, one can choose among the many selections of freeze-dried candies. For example, their Skittle and Life Savers don’t overwhelm in sweetness and feature a delightful crunch.

Proprietor Lisa Siebens said she’s always looking to order more varieties, leaving one to question if they can freeze-dry cotton candy. Surprisingly, she said it’s possible.

They’ve added a selfie photo booth this year. Professionally decorated with plenty of natural greenery, elegant drapes and a comfortable loveseat, the booth gives families a chance to capture the spirit of the holiday and is located in their adjacent Main Street Depot / E-bikes store.
