Stick with Sticky Fingers

Stick with Sticky Fingers

As a baker myself, I make a point to try all the local bakeries. I heard from several people that a new bakery was opening in Kaukauna, and as soon as they posted their menu, I couldn’t wait to try it. Right in the heart of downtown Kaukauna, Sticky Fingers opened in...


Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Tuesday. What is there to do on a Tuesday? Hardly anything, ever, really. Tuesday falls too early in the week and yet is so far removed from the weekend. Sometimes it is just another Monday masquerading as a Tuesday. 313 Dodge might just be what you are looking for....

Wisconsin Staples at Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern

As I’m getting used to living in Wisconsin, I’m discovering some of the Wisconsin staples when it comes to food and spirits. I knew about Spotted Cow and cheese curds before I moved to Wisconsin, but that was about it. Fortunately, Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern...

Bushels of Fun at Bauer’s Apple Shed

As soon as the leaves begin to change, even ever so slightly, so does my weekly menu. When the shades of green turn to red and orange, my refrigerator, once full of peaches, quickly becomes home to all things apple. Taking a trip to a local apple orchard is my...

Faris Popcorn is Poppin’

Faris Popcorn is Poppin’

When I previously lived in Illinois, I became familiar with the popcorn chain “Garrett Popcorn.” One of my favorites mixes was their Garrett Mix, their world famous cheddar and caramel corn mix. When I moved to Wisconsin, I wasn’t sure if I would find a popcorn...

The weather this past week has been sweltering. Our staff hasn’t been immune, so we decided to share with you one of our favorite ways to cool off, of course ice cream! Whether it be your favorite Mexican sundae, adding a few of your favorite toppings to tried and true chocolate and vanilla, or letting the establishment decide for you with their flavor of the day. We have you covered.

In this blog post our blogger Jenn, Alison and myself share a few of our favorite choices. Let us know your favorites in the comments so we can feature them in an upcoming post. Because reality is, can you ever go wrong with ice cream? Enjoy!

Jenn’s Pick – Rhaposides Custard

Rhaposides Custard

Rhapsodies is the place to go for custard and if you’re a fan of music. The walls are adorned with instruments and lyrics from different musicians like Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan. They serve vanilla and chocolate custard every day, and each day they offer a “Flavor of the Day” like Cherry Crunch or Jimi Hendtwix. They update their website each month to list the flavors of the day for the whole month. Their custard is used to make other sweet treats like sundaes, malts, and floats. Oh, and you can even purchase select pints to take home and indulge on your own time!


Alison’s Pick – Leon’s Frozen Custard

Leon’s Frozen Custard was established in 1947 and maintains that vintage feel still today. You can see it’s neon light sign and bright teal and pink exterior as you drive up Murdock Avenue in Oshkosh. This drive-in serves up a unique flavor of the day everyday while still offering classic chocolate and vanilla for the purists. You can enjoy the custard in one of their specialty sundaes or choose from their many toppings to make your own. Whether you choose a sundae, malt, shake, cup, or cone Leon’s custard will not disappoint!

Alicia’s Pick – Frio Mexican Treats

We talked about my pick Frio in a blog post almost a year ago, featuring their delicious elote. You can read that blog entry here. But the consistent overwhelming favorite for myself and many of our readers are Frio’s Churro Bar. 

Frio gives you a menu of many different options with different toppings for each different sundae in the churro bar. My favorite, the Smores. If you are feeling more adventurous why not try another of my favorites, the S.O.B. South of the border with potato chips. Other flavors include the Shiocton Blast, Captain Crunch and new fun addition Cheat Day. Which I can assure that Frio is always a part of my cheat days.
