We’re Not Sure What A Bomboloni Is, But We Know Rockford Needs It
If you can't get fat and happy during the winter months you're probably doing it wrong.
I mean, why not? It's cold, without looking at weather forecasts, I'm almost sure more snow is coming, so let's enjoy the bad food when there's nothing left to do.
Might want to save room because Bombo Bar in Chicago, 832 West Randolph Street, offers something called the bomboloni. At its core, the Bombo Bar bomboloni is a donut sliced in half and stuffed with gelato. It's more than that, much, much, more.
MSN considers the bomboloni Illinois' "Most Outrageous Dessert."
You don't have to travel to Tuscany for an Italian donut. You can find the traditional Bomboloni—a pillowy Italian donut without a hole in the center—at BomboBar in Chicago. Choose from a variety of fillings for your donut from the classic cream to salted caramel to rich Nutella.
I've had something similar to a bomboloni in Belvidere at Dari Ripple this past summer they called donut ice cream sandwiches.
Indulge. It's cold. And anyway, we've got a plan to work off the extra winter calories in this summer, right?
