Russell Stover’s Candies, Coffee, and Ice Cream recently opened a new store located at 5503 N. Illinois Street in Fairview Heights, Illinois. I walked into this lovely ice cream parlor featuring 24 flavors of hand dipped Velvet Ice Cream last week to check out the store and satisfy my hunger for an old fashion malt. Entering the new store you could not help but notice how light and airy it was. The displays were all around you with friendly ladies to assist you. The store was well organized and all of the items displayed nicely.
My first stop was the Ice Cream parlor to order a Marshmallow malt to satisfy my craving. I drank my delicious malt and walked through the store noticing the display of Russell Stover’s full line of home made candy, fudge, caramel apples, nuts, kids candy corner, gift baskets, and my favorite the coffee bar with all the wonderful specialties. The prices are very reasonable.
The neat thing about Russell Stover’s is you can purchase a box of candy already gift wrapped, or select your very own favorites. They will box them for you. I prefer to select my own. A favorite of mine is the light chocolate Bordeaux. It’s apparent this new store location is ready for the holidays with such a wonderful assortment of sweets and gift ideas for everyone. This will be a stop for me during the holidays, to try their delicious hot chocolate.
