Margie's Candies - Chicago, IL

Mary and I got to meet up one last time and went to Great Seas again.  She mentioned that she went to a cute little ice cream parlor in Bucktown.  I recently moved closer to Bucktown so I was intrigued to find a neighborhood ice cream place.  We decided to meet up with some of our friends there for dessert.  

Inside you will find yourself transported in time.  It's so quaint and a bit kitschy, but in the best way possible.

They have so many different types of sundaes, three full pages-worth of ice cream options, so it was really hard to choose.  Each one comes in a huge shell bowl with some sugar wafers.  

I think this was a turtle sundae.  

This one was the banana split with strawberries.  

Here's another one with pineapples.  As you can see, almost everyone got their own sundaes for themselves.  It's not because we are gluttons, well ... we are, but because it was so cheap!  

Relative to the $8 cup of frozen yogurt, we just paid a few nights back, getting a sundae with three to four scoops of ice cream, nuts and various toppings for under $8 felt like we won the lottery.  It's a great place to come with friends, squeeze yourselves like sardines in those tiny booths and share some good old fashioned sundaes.  I'm a big fan.  

FYI, we noticed a lot of people got their orders to go and just ate outside.  They have some plastic chairs set up, so if it's a nice day outside, you can always take your order to go and sit outside.  From what I hear, they will wrap up the wafer cookie for you as well.
