Does anybody else remember the Coney sauce from The Cool Spot?
Fegett said she also has a hankering for two specialties from Arnholt Bakery, which closed in July 2006 after 77 years in business.
“They used to make mints. They weren’t a strong mint flavor,” Fegett recalls.
“They made them whatever color you wanted,” she said. “They must have made them by using an icing bag.
“We used to get them for graduations and weddings,” she said. “I remember getting them for, gosh, 40 years.”
Fegett’s other favorite from Arnholt’s was its date-nut cookies, which she described as a “dropped cookie,” not a rolled-out cookie.
If anybody remembers The Cool Spot or Arnholt Bakery or has old-time recipes to share, please contact me.
