For the young at heart, staffers blend together cookies, candies, chocolate-covered coffee beans, and more with its signature sweet cream ?Chaa? to create more than 100 gourmet treats. The shop also brews a smooth and tasty blend of Kona coffee and serves the caffeine-packed beverage hot, iced, or as a frappe.
Special Occasion Chocolates has been handcrafting gourmet gifts for more than 13 years, carefully blending flavor, aesthetics, and charming candor into each scrumptious morsel. Redefine the concept of the word “vegetable” with a bag of chocolate-covered potato chips, or surprise well-behaved taste buds with a bag of white-chocolate or peanut-butter pretzel bites (ranging from $4.75 for a 1/4 lb. bag to $17.95 for 1 lb.). Fruit fans can enjoy nature’s candy ensconced in an edible outfit with a dozen chocolate-dipped strawberries or peanut-butter banana gems ($26.95/dozen), or just remix the classics with chocolate-dipped Oreos, long pretzels, and brownies ($1.75 each).
In 1961, J.B. Wilson founded his own barbecue eatery and populated the menu with recipes of his own design. These recipes remained unchanged throughout the years, as did his signature welcome—greeting customers in a top hat and cane. When he fell ill in 2004, he passed the business’s reins to his close friend Amos Adetula. Afraid that J.B’s recipes would otherwise be lost forever, Amos graciously agreed to lead the restaurant into the future. His legacy now secure, Mr. Wilson passed away three days later.
Today, Amos still makes all the original sauces for the restaurant's ribs, brisket, and pork himself, including the sweet sauce that adorns the restaurant’s signature baked beans. Savory dishes complement sweet-potato or buttermilk pies, which the staff makes by hand from scratch each day. A number of longneck brews stands at the ready to cool diners’ tongues in the wake of smoked meats, hot baked potatoes, and periodic fire-breathing competitions. Inside the original location on Apache, large plasma televisions adorn the exposed log cabin–style walls, hanging above booths bedecked in the original black and red checkered style. Outside the eatery's confines, breezy outdoor seating around an original built-in concrete fire pit encourages frequent fresh-air feasts. When lovers of Wilson's require the food to come to them, culinary crews transport the eatery’s fare with full offsite catering services for events such as tailgate parties, where staffers set up and break down after the meal.
Pure Bliss Yogurt cools tongues and calms rumbling tummies with a selection of sweet snacks and natural frozen yogurt. With cup in hand, patrons choose from a rotating selection of fro-yo flavors that includes cookies 'n' cream, pumpkin, plain tart, and blissful blends of cherry and chocolate. Yogurt mountains are then customized at the topping bar, where 35+ options such as fresh fruit, gummy bears, and cookie dough await to lend an added crunch or pop of color to each frosty spoonful. For fans of un-chilly eats, the shop also curates a fresh collection of cake balls and cupcakes each day with flavors that can include german chocolate, italian crème, and yellow cake hailing from somewhere outside Sheboygan.
Paciugo's Latin motto, Ante Lucrum Nomen, meaning "Reputation Before Profit," neatly summarizes its liberal three-scoops attitude. Its luscious cold creams contain 70% less fat than premium ice cream, thus making it 130% more okay to consume several consecutive pints' worth. Each of their Turin recipes employ fresh and all-natural ingredients coupled with the finest fruit, nuts, chocolates and more to churn up scrumptious orbs of sweet sustenance. The gelateria's menu ushers taste buds toward small piccolo cups ($3.77) with three scoops and up to three different flavors, such as black raspberry, amaretto chocolate chip, chocolate black-cherry swirl, black-pepper olive oil, Mediterranean sea-salt caramel, chocolate orange saffron, and many more.
Bagel Boyz Deli brings several new twists to the long-standing tradition of the New York–style bagel. Stuffy bagel purists may grow faint witnessing the avant garde application of house-made spicy queso to The Boyz breakfast sandwich with sausage and egg ($4.49), and bagel buffs who like their edibles stuffed will seek refuge in the deli's array of piled-high sandwiches, wraps, and burritos. The New York Reuben hosts a party of corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and mustard on a dance floor of pumpernickel or poppy seed bagel ($5.69), and the chicken salad wrap ($5.49) demonstrates that embracing a bird doesn't require a trip to Sesame Street. Unadorned carb circles come in many varieties—from classics such as cinnamon raisin and blueberry to the more adventurous green chili ($1.19)—but are rarely seen far from their entourage of cream cheeses, including garden veggie, spicy, honey almond, and more.
