Peach Nehi floats are the icon of Iconium, Mo.

Ask any Boy Scout under 50 or any Scout leader under 75 in the area about a Peach Nehi float and he will know just what you’re talking about: Scott’s Iconium Store, home of the summertime treat enjoyed by thousands each year. Rick Pearson, who drives down from Independence so his son, Blake, 13, can play his guitar and sing for tips on the front porch of the house next to the store, put it another way: “Nothing like sucking on peach floats until your shorts get tight.”
