Peach Nehi Floats in Iconium, Mo. Wed, 07/24/13 1:50 AM (permalink)
A nifty story about Peach Nehi floats in Small town Missouri. close by the boy scout camp.
 Peach Nehi floats are the icon of Iconium, Mo. - KansasCity.com
 
     
JOHN SLEEZER | THE KANSAS CITY STARA handful of Peach Nehi floats was the tasty reward for standing in line on a busy Sunday at Scott’s Iconium Store in Iconium, Mo.

A small-town general store sits at the end of the block. Single gas pump out front, awning reaching to the street, groceries, work gloves and cold soda pop.
Time it right and maybe an old dog will be asleep on the porch.
This is Scott’s Iconium Store, and it’s been around since the 1880s in this town about a hundred miles southeast of Kansas City. New owners took over earlier this year. No, his name isn’t Sam. Or Ike. You’re pushing.
But Shannon Tucker and his wife, Nikki, did “audition” a year before the couple who ran the place for more than three decades would sell it to them. They refused to turn it over to just anyone.
So what is it about this old store? Why is it still going when most like it crumbled to the ground a long time ago as America raced past to get to fancy places with shopping carts and automatic doors?
Well, it sure isn’t the Iconium population, because 35 won’t cut it.
But serving a thousand Peach Nehi ice cream floats in a single day, now that will keep the doors open.
Some of you are going — a thousand?
The rest are going — Peach Nehi ?
Yes and yes.

    Well, I've never had a Peach Nehi Float, but I've drank many a Peach Nehi and I must say love those frosty beverages. Guess I'll have to make my own next time I score a few bottles of Peach. Not a fan of the soft serve they pictured. Maybe a nice Graeter's Vanilla.
