Every time that Jill and I go on our Spring vacation [this is the 4th year], it's a tradition to find a good ice cream place. Then, Jill takes a photograph of me eating the ice cream [and usually holding her ice cream cone also!]

This year was no exception. On the first night of our stay in Galena, after dinner and after walking around the town "window shopping", we discovered Great American Popcorn Company and noticed people coming out with delicious-looking ice cream cones. So, we had to investigate.

Besides ice cream, they sell, of course, all kinds of popcorn, candy, and small gift items.
It's a very large place, and it was quite busy that night.

Favorite Dish: They had many flavors to choose. We both decided to have Black Walnut Ice Cream in Waffle Cones. We asked for one-scoop cones. Thank goodness because the one-dip cones were gigantic.

After the mandatory photo, we resumed eating our delicious treats and were very pleased with our choices.
