To celebrate the wonderful Summer...I mean, Spring we are having so far we headed out for some ice cream! But not just ANY ice cream...no push-up pops or Ben & Jerry's just wouldn't do. We were looking for something extra special. Ice cream so wonderfully creamy and delicious it makes you want to buy a moo-moo to lounge around in, calories be damned! With that said we headed to fabled Capanarri Ice Cream at 10 S. Pine Street in Mount Prospect. You can peruse their offerings by visiting http://www.capannaris.com/ and can reach them by phone at (847) 392-2277.
If we hadn't already been told how AWESOME Capanarri's is the line going out the door would have been a good indicator. They have oh so many yummy flavors of ice cream! With an impressive array of regular flavors and a nice selection of rotating seasonal flavors you may find it difficult to decide what lucky flavor to spend some quality time with. If you simply cannot choose you'll be happy to know you can get a tasting flight of four different flavors of their ice cream! Oh yes, we thought wine flights were fabulous...but an ice cream flight? Heavenly!
Their ice cream texture is very smooth and creamy, but not as heavy as a custard-style. The staff consisted of teenagers who were actually helpful, upbeat and friendly. They have some benches outside and they are conveniently located next to a nice little park with additional tables & seating. They are currently open weekends only in March, Fridays 3pm - 10pm, Saturdays noon - 10p-m and Sundays noon - 9pm. Check their website or give them a call for updated hours once April is here!
