Parade magazine honors Good Humor birthplace

YOUNGSTOWN — The birthplace of the Good Humor bar will be honored Wednesday with a plaque from Parade magazine.

The building at 325 W. Federal St. once housed Burt’s Confectionary — the place where owner Harry Burt discovered a neater way of eating ice cream by coating it in chocolate and placing it on a wooden stick.   The creation was given the name the Good Humor Bar and was patented three years later.

Though the business does not exist anymore, the three-story building and the business that currently operates out of it, Ross Radio, will be accepting the plaque in its honor at 10 a.m.
