50 years of Pee Wee's Dari Snak

Pee Wee and Bertha Haas, started Pee Wee's Dari Snak 50 years ago in Stony Ridge, Ohio. In 1977, a banana split at Pee Wee’s Stony Ridge Dari Snak cost 95 cents. These days, that same ice cream treat is priced at $4.35. Price increases aside, much remains the same at the ice cream stand on Fremont Pike, which is owned by Maxine Haas and on Wednesday celebrated its 50th year in business.
