Petersen's Old Fashioned Ice Cream
In 1919, the same year he immigrated to America, Danish native Hans Petersen opened the first Petersen's Old Fashioned Ice Cream in Oak Park, IL. Today, using Hans's same recipe of 16–18% butterfat ice cream, Petersen's confectioners craft 20-plus flavors, including caramel ripple, peach, and chocolate peanut butter. The menu boasts ice cream parlor classics, which range from turtle sundaes to root-beer floats made the old-fashioned way. Fudge from Michigan's Mackinac Island rounds out Petersen's dairy-based treats. For lactose-intolerant guests, the shop stocks sorbets, as well as gourmet teas and coffees.
