Whether in the form of a cone, cup, sundae or float, everyone loves ice cream.
The icy cold treat is especially popular during the summer months, providing a temporary relief from what can sometimes be scorching temperatures. It's a reward for good behavior, a treat following a relaxing meal or an annual stop along the local parade route.
So we want to know—What's your preferred spot in the Southland is to indulge? There's no doubt that we have a repertoire of deliciously sweet options in Orland Park, , Oak Forest, Palos, Chicago Heights, Homewood-Flossmoor, Evergreen Park, Oak Lawn, Frankfort, New Lenox and Mokena.
