|Rainbow Cones with my friend Lara|
This delicious treat has been a Chicago favorite for nearly 85 years. This south side institution credits its growth to its location - near many old cemetaries. Families visiting the cemetaries on Sundays would stop by Rainbow Cone for a sweet treat. I have yet to visit the actual Rainbow Cone operation, but have been a fan purchasing it for the last several years when I've visited Taste of Chicago.
What makes the Rainbow Cone so special? It's layers! There are 5 flavors of ice cream nestled atop the cone:
- Vanilla (but not just any vanilla - this is Palmer House vanilla complete with cherries and walnuts)
- Orange Sherbert
If you have yet to enjoy a Rainbow Cone, what's stopping you?!
