Illinois Loves Ice Cream, Here Are Places On The Must Try List
The residents of the Rockford, Illinois area were recently asked to name their top locations for ice cream, and here's what they had to say.
Ice Cream Is A Very Popular Summer Treat In Illinois
I just asked myself this question the other day, "who doesn't love ice cream?" If the answer is you don't, then I'm sorry we can't be friends. Well, unless you have an allergy or something like that. I'm a huge fan and it's definitely my weakness. I could eat it every day. I believe a lot of people in Illinois feel the same way. It's the perfect treat during the Midwest summer. The tasty treat is so refreshing on a hot day.
Illinois Is Home To Many Ice Cream Parlors
One of the main reasons I believe ice cream is so popular in Illinois is because of the amount of little mom-and-pop type stands throughout the state. This time of year is so exciting because they all start opening for the season. Last weekend, I headed up to Rockton for the opening of the DairyHaus. It was so delicious. I recommend one of the newest flavors, Fruity Pebbles. My nephew started working there so that's an extra bonus.
