best ice cream?
What are thought on the best ice cream or gelato downtown and western burbs? Our tastes tend toward interesting flavor choices (e.g., fruit) w/o chunks of sweet sticky stuff inside, not super-sweet, and on the creamier/richer side....
Are there any Oberweis outlets near you? Very good ice cream. I love the coffee ice cream and their strawberry is delicious.
My dh loves Petersen's in Oak Park. They also serve diner-type food.
Far west has Graham's Fine Chocolates & Ice Cream. I've only had it once but I remember thinking it was good. I think I had sherbet there.
I am not sure I'd describe any of these as less than typically sweet, though. Still, they're worth a try if the locations are convenient!
Try Canady, a wonderful chocolatier who also makes good gelati, in particular the mascarpone (creamy and rich with a tart undertaste) and the pistachio (nutty!)
