Worth The Drive: Make your trip to Findlay, OH sweet with Dietsch Brothers chocolate

Regina Fox



You may know Findlay, OH because it is home to the Marathon Petroleum headquarters, or you may have heard it been referred to as “Flag City U.S.A.” But, everyone knows Dietsch Brothers is what really put the small city on the map.

For over 80 years, people have been traveling to Northwest Ohio from far and near just to get a taste of the famed candies and ice cream at Dietsch.

Upon arriving at either location of the quaint, family-owned shop, you’ll be greeted warmly by the chocolatiers and scoop scientists behind the counter. The smell of baking waffle cones and melting milk chocolate will remind you that you must make a choice: ice cream or candy?

Should you choose the ice cream route, there are dozens of homemade hard-dip flavors to pick from including Buckeye, Chocolate Pretzel Caramel Swirl, Mackinac Island Fudge, Maple Nut, and many more. You can also find specialty treats like pies, cakes, and ice cream sandwiches.

Dietsch has been in the ice cream game long enough to know nothing pairs better with a couple scoops of sweet cream than a glass of ice cold water. Be sure to grab some from the tap at the end of the counter before finding a booth to enjoy your treat.


If you choose the candy route, you’ll be entering into a world of pure imagination. Ganache, peanut brittle, candy buckeyes, specialty popcorn, truffles, and more adorn the shelves and surfaces of the Dietsch candy shop. You can’t make a wrong choice (unless you leave empty handed), but it would be a mistake to miss out on two specific goodies: caramels and chocolate-covered pretzels.

Dietsch’s individually-wrapped caramel chews are what sweet tooths crave and what orthodontists fear. They’re soft, buttery, and totally decadent. I bet you can’t eat just one.

The pretzels are by far Dietsch’s most popular offering year after year.

The candy masters start by personally picking up pretzels at a nearby factory to guarantee maximum freshness. Then, the lightly-salted pretzels are engulfed by sweet, melty chocolate—sweet and smooth on the outside, salty and crunchy on the inside.

Customers can select from either milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white frosted, or a combination of them all!

No matter if you choose the path of ice cream or candy on your sweet adventure to Dietsch Brothers in Findlay, Ohio, you will not be led astray. In fact, you’d probably make Edward Dietsch and his brothers Chris and Don, who opened the shop so long ago, pretty proud if you left the shop with a cone in one hand and a caramel in the other.

See what “big changes” are coming to The Market Italian Village

Regina Fox



Fans of The Market Italian Village certainly aren't enjoying this temporary closure while it undergoes renovations, but the restaurant promises the wait will be worth it.

The neighborhood restaurant recently announced in a release "big changes" coming to the space to create more "experienced-based dining."

"We’ve teamed up with incredible designers, architects, and artists to give our space a beautiful update and we can’t keep our mouths shut about it any longer!" wrote The Market Italian Village on Facebook.

The Market is currently closed and will reopen to guests the weekend after Thanksgiving with two very special additions:

  • Columbus’ FIRST chef's table - A unique experience to get up close and personal with one of the city’s most unique chefs, Tyler Minnis. The reservation-based tasting counter seats four and will face toward the kitchen, giving guests direct access to Chef Tyler throughout the dining experience as he creates a four-course tasting menu. Available for $50-60 per person on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
  • Community Table Seating - Perfect for group dining, this intimate booth is reservations-only for large parties, seating up to 16 guests. Those seated at the community table will order from a pre-set family-style menu, pre-determined by Chef Tyler on a monthly basis.

The post went on to say the restaurant "just scratched the surface" of its announcements.

The Market Italian Village is located at 1022 Summit St. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.

5 tasty merchants announced for North Market Dublin

Regina Fox



You now have five more reasons to be excited for Dublin's North Market with its recent announcement of merchants. North Market veterans and newbies alike are coming together for the first phase of committed businesses for the Bridge Park public market.

Momo Ghar, Dough Mama, Market Bar, Coastal Local Seafood, and The Dublin Farmer's Daughter will occupy five of the 19 stalls.

“Like we have done for 143 years at our downtown location, we are successfully curating the best-in-class fresh meats, seafood, bakery, and produce categories for the Bridge Park facility that will provide a unique experience for visitors,” said North Market Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe.

In case you're not hip to the dynamite dumplings, Momo Ghar will be opening a third location inside North Market Bridge Park. As Food & Wine so affectionately wrote, “Once you try this food, you will never have any problem finding your way back here.”

Dough Mama is yet another Central Ohio favorite, serving "stick-to-your-bones" comfort food with a twist, according to the website. Guests can enjoy homemade biscuits, sandwiches, soups, desserts, pastries, and more.

Market Bar will be quenching the adult thirsts of North Market Bridge Park goers with a variety of craft beer and fine wines to go. This concept is owned by Pete Volker and Wayne Lin.

Central Ohio seafood distributor Ian Holmes, owner of Coastal Local Seafood, will bring his expertise to the North Market Bridge Park merchant community. Upon opening their first retail shop at North Market Bridge Park, Coastal Local Seafood will be able to provide the same wonderful seafood ingredients for home chefs and will also serve on-site menu items such as lobster rolls and crab cakes. Dublin residents and guests can look forward to enjoying fresh oysters at the New England-themed raw bar.

The Dublin Farmer's Daughter is a new concept from the owners of Copia Farm, partners Caitlin Bergman and Dan McLeod. This venture will focus on the highest quality ingredients sourced from our farm and other local farms said Bergman in a release.
