chicago fave: scooter's

Do you know what today is? Today is a very special day. It's highlighted on my calendar. I've been counting down for months.

Today is the day that Scooter's Frozen Custard opens for the summer season, and that makes me a really happy girl. I've waited patiently since the doors closed in December, and now I'm ready for more of the frozen goodness that only Scooter's delivers. Since I was a kid, I have loved frozen custard. It's thicker, richer and creamier than ice cream and is melt-in-your-mouth (literally!) delicious. So today is like Christmas for me, but better because I don't have to do anything. No wrapping presents or running around like mad to get all my shopping done. Nope - I just have to walk a few blocks to the best frozen custard shop in Chicago where I'll join a line out the door of loyal customers eager to order their much-missed cones and sundaes and concretes {custard with yummy mix-ins}. You better believe that this won't be my last visit in '08!

And in case you're wondering, my favorite order is the Chocolate Fudge Nut Brownie Chip. It's every bit as delicious as it sounds. Hello heaven.
