3. Black Cow Float Ice Cream from Ample Hills Creamery
Just one of the creative flavors from this Prospect Heights ice cream shop, of about 24 that change daily, this scoop combines root beer-flavored ice cream with a chocolately swirl to summon the soda fountain float. The newcomer mom-and-pop creamery makes all flavors by the small batch, using local eggs, milk and cream, and extra TLC that you can taste. New flavors are being churned up all the time, and look out for ones using local specialties such as Steve's Key Lime pies or Sixpoint stout.
