As new restaurants emerge in Macon, the blue collar past of the mom and pop restaurant lingers. Their memory and familiarity of Macon’s lost restaurants are what gives them their charm you’ve come to remember. Beloved luncheonettes, fish houses, neighborhood grocers and sophisticated dining rooms—Macon has seen the best of them all come and go.
And for over 30 years, a simple acronym appearing on a billboard between June 1st and July 1st, served as a signal of summertime in Central Georgia. What is H.M.F.P.I.C. you ask? Well, its just homemade fresh peach ice cream. This delicious treat served at Len Berg's Post Office Alley location came about when visitors would inquire as to where to find fresh local peaches. Because most local farms shipped their peaches out for retail and commercial sales, Len Berg's came up with the idea of H.M.F.P.I.C. to meet demand.
While some restaurants come and go, others are dearly missed and never forgotten; Len Berg's being no exception. Just because Len Berg's closed its doors many years ago, doesn't mean you have to go without this delectable treat. Yes, that's right - Len Berg's H.M.F.P.I.C. is still served at Sid's Sandwich shop on Forsyth Street. If you can't get your hands on a bowl of that famous ice cream, take a nostalgic trip back in time with this Limited Edition Flour Sac Towel with the cryptic advertising acronym H.M.F.P.I.C. that everyone looked forward to on June 1st.
