It's not always easy having a highly developed sense of taste: being able to detect the sliminess, gums, fillers, artificial flavors and textures that pack most commercial ice creams can make what other people consider a treat a trial for you. But even the most sensitive palates will find delight in the marvelous ice cream served up in heaping scoops at the Marble Slab Creamery in Skokie, IL. MS has some of the freshest, cleanest tasting ice cream I've ever had, it is my hands down favorite in the Chicago area. The ice cream is made fresh every day, and tastes like it -- no off flavors, sliminess or artificial tastes here, just clean, fresh, sweet delicious cold cream flavor. It leaves the palate clean and very happy. Flavors range from the popular and delicious Sweet Cream (a perfect medium for one of their dozen or so mix ins that are available, including junior mints, whole almonds and praline pecans) to the always wonderful Lemon Custard, Raspberry, Peach, Swiss Chocolate, Cookie Dough, Vanilla...are you hungry yet? And unlike some of the other cold slab mix-in shops, MS ice cream is delicious even without any mix-ins. Prices are high, calories higher, but its really so good that its worth it.
