A few weeks ago, I was in Chicago for Angie’s bridal shower and to visit Ken’s family. Ken didn’t come with me because he was on a business trip in Florida – after Chicago, I flew directly to Miami directly and he flew from Orlando back to New York. We eventually reunited in New York a week later, but not before I went to Glenview Dairy Bar with Ken’s family. Ken grew up eating Glenview Dary Bar’s soft serve every summer and always talks about it, but this was my first trip to the Dairy Bar. They are closed during the harsh winters and their opening day is such a big deal that people literally camp out to be the first person in line on opening day. Even though it was very chilly out, the lines were still very long:


Charley was especially excited for their soft serve and opted for the vanilla soft serve with sprinkles:


I ordered the vanilla soft serve with a dark chocolate dip and a rainbow crunch (I can’t remember the exact name and it’s escaping Ken’s mind as well):


Charley and I sent this to Ken to make him jealous:


The soft serve is very creamy and not too sweet – the dip actually makes it difficult to enjoy the soft serve and the crunch is a little too crunchy and sweet for me. I can’t wait to go back to the suburbs with Ken to enjoy it again – this time, I’m getting the soft serve without dip and maybe just sprinkles.
