It's a tradition that wherever I travel, I make sure I try Ice Cream or Gelato. My visit to Oak Park was no exception. On the last day of our visit, Mickey and I decided that we needed the famed "ice cream break". We were in the Avenue Shopping Area, and close to the Oberweis Dairy; thus, we stopped to have our treats.
Now, I have been to Oberweis Dairy stores in my own area and would have preferred to have tried another brand. It's not my favorite ice cream because it seems to be whipped full of air. Even though it tastes good, it uses artificial flavors and is sweetened with corn syrup.
Another problem was with this specific store. When you walk in, it is not easy to read the huge signs...the signage is too crowded and confusing. We had to stand off to the side to peruse and then diligently study the menu. Mickey wanted a combination of caramel and hot fudge for toppings. She found what she needed in a brochure, not from the big menu. In addition, I was charged a $1.00 more because I was asked if I wanted nuts on my hot fudge sundae, and I said yes. Meanwhile, Mickey's "Turtle Sundae" [same size as mine] came with caramel, hot fudge, and nuts for $1.00 less!! This did not set well with me.
Favorite Dish: Even though I have real complaints about this ice cream shop, I must say that it was large, well lit, and the seats/tables were comfortable. There are many, many choices of ice cream flavors, toppings, etc. It seemed to be a busy place so most people must like the product.
Besides ice cream, they also sell Oberweis Milk, and other dairy products.j
