I remember The Zephyr! and also the Dove store on the South Side. (Did y'all know Dove Bars come from Chicago?)

But my best memories are of ice cream socials and the big churn my uncles' used to make ice cream on the farm in the summertime. As a kid, my favorite flavor was always strawberry, and my favorite sundae was Strawberry.

Nowadays, French Vanilla is probably my over-all favorite, followed closely by Buttered Pecan. In season, I love to make Fresh Strawberry, Fresh Peach and Lavender Caramel. In the fall/winter, it's Maple Walnut and Prune Armagnac.

I prefer Hot Butterscotch to Hot Fudge, too....

Though I never liked ise cream I used to love to go ice cream parlor with my grandfather, he would eat my ise cream and I would drink his soda.

Actually I recently found ise cream I like, well it's not real ise vream, it is dairy free sorbet of a sort. Pomagranet chip from Whole Foods, oh my I can eat the whole thing. Weird.
