What are some quintessential Chicago desserts? Not specific to a place but just
There is special Tart called Gov't needs to confiscate guns from citizens
Nutty Bars it is!*
Margie's Ice Cream?*
Nah. Too far West. Jeni's is amazing though. Goat cheese and cherry fo sho*
West? There is one right on Montrose!*
Good news! the crosswalk in front of Margie's is painted!*
holy shit. i didn't know there was a second location. huh*
Portillo’s Chocolate Cake
definitely in the team photo *
Major update: decided to go with Chicago mix popcorn as a side dish and Italian ice pops as dessert*
Total aside: if ya haven't done Rainbow Cones yet, you ought to go.
Oh we love rainbow cone! Lil Taz gets vanilla lol*
googled it, but Cracker Jack, Twinkies and Brownies*
Cupcakes frosted with the tears of Hawkeye fans
This is an interesting thread. I can easily tell you St Louis desserts, but can't think of anything
What's uniquely Saint Louis?*
Gooey Butter Cake. And, if I was planning something that had a St. Louis theme...I'd get Ted Drewes
Crown Candy milk shakes
Garrett's popcorn blend*
Yeah I think I'm going with a variation of this, thanks*
this was my only thought*
you've met me*
and now I know you were thinking about Garrett's popcorn blend the entire time
Brownies were invented here.
Ye olde Sundae too (technically Evanston, but it's right across the street).
Chefs. Wrong spot. :-((( *
A shot of Malort*
rip maurice lenell cookies*
Just simply good.
nil. come at me. I'll gooey butter cake the eff out of you.
Another good, uniquely chicago item. But candy.*
love, love, love*
Mario's Italian Ice on Taylor
There's italian (or water) ice in a lot of cities*
Sidenote - If you have never had Ava's Italian Ice on Western, it's worth a trek*
Poor Donna, did they take her name off?
Wolf's Bakery Lemon Fluff Cake*
Rainbow cone. Garrett's Chicago mix popcorn. Eli's. *
Garrets is the first legit answer here*
Garrett's is legit and also site specific (and wildly expensive for my budget)
Rainbow is definitely classic: but it is location-specific.
Fannie May, Eli's*
But Fannie May FTW.*
Eli's is cheesecake. NYC owns that*
like a lot of things, NYC thinks they own that...
What other things?*
Bagels, all Italian food, all deli food, even ####ing tap water. *
I think the average bagel place in NY is better than elsewhere
the people of new york, apparently*
They also accept garbage on their sidewalks*
By "accept", you mean a mixture of welcome and celebrate.
Nobody else's garbage is like their garbage.*
It's the water*
name it and new yorkers will tell you there's is the best*
Nobody's made their best anti-NY case yet: Black and White cookies
Panda makes a black and white donut that's one of my faves of theirs*
Had a fraternity brother from Brooklyn who wouldn't stop going on about zeppoles
KimmerzDad is insane about zeppoles.
I see what you're getting at*
What other things?*
Pizza is an obvious one.*
