Taste of Chicago, Day 8

Mmm, ice cream!

If you missed the chance to try CaramelCream ice cream at Taste of Chicago, you’ll have another opportunity this weekend!

On Friday and Saturday, two stores will give free samples of CaramelCream ice cream to people in line. Customers at 4 East Madison will be treated to the soft-serve version, while customers at 625 N Michigan Avenue will receive scoops of ice cream.

CaramelCream, in case you hadn’t heard, is a swirled combination of CaramelCrisp® and Vanilla Popcorn flavors, topped with delicious CaramelCrisp® popcorn.

Hope to see you there!

UPDATE: We will have ice cream from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
