A few years ago one of the two men who started Bobtail was on a panel of entrepreneurs speaking to our small business group. I was charmed by their story of starting the business while they were in graduate school, using recipes from a grandfather who had an ice cream shop many years ago. I made a point of visiting their Chicago shop and have been a customer ever since. In this high tech world, I believe in artisanal food prepared by someone who really cares what they feed people, like Bobtail.

Two words: S'mores Shake!!!!!!!

What You'll Get

While a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, a scoop of ice cream is the only way to lure kids into writing a four-page essay on German existentialism. Pick up a delicious bargaining chip with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of shakes, sundaes, and more at Bobtail Ice Cream Company. This Groupon is only valid for redemption at the Wilmette location.

Bobtail Ice Cream Company serves up homemade, hand-packed ice cream to dessert-hankerers, with the dairy delight finding a home in ice-cold shakes ($4.69), hot brownie sundaes ($6.25), and other refreshing treats. Wolf down a single scoop ($3.19) from Bobtail's delectable lineup of ice-cream flavors, including creamy concoctions such as the the Daley addiction, featuring butter fudge swirled into vanilla ice cream that isn't seeking a seventh term.

Classic creations include the tried-and-true banana split ($6.25), a delicious amalgamation of homemade chocolate syrup, strawberries, pineapple, and three types of ice cream. Regular milkshakes make for a scintillating snack, with Bobtail whipping up double chocolate ice cream and raspberry syrup to make the raspberry truffle shake. Customers can even conjure the spirit of ice-cream artist Vincent Van Cookie Dough to build their own tantalizing treat, with flavors such as cappuccino crunch yogurt, peanut butter cup, and pistachio mingling with Oreos, almonds, and marshmallows.

Inspired by one of the owner's grandfather—an Ohio salesman who took ice cream door-to-door and built his business on getting to know his customers—Bobtail Ice Cream Company carries on the tradition of classic ice-cream parlors. Drive a spoon-shaped forklift into one of Bobtail's delicious treats and fill the warehouse of your stomach with scoopable sweetness.

About Bobtail Ice Cream Company

Sweet vanilla, chocolate, and fruit flavors meld together in homemade ice creams inspired by three generations of family recipes at Bobtail Ice Cream Company. The company's roots stretch back to 1950, when Grandpa Wilcoxon handed out his first personally created treat from his ice-cream truck. Mr. Wilcoxon's unquenchable admiration for his products and his customers inspired his grandson, Jeff, to follow in his grandfather's footsteps and invent a time machine. Today, Bobtail Ice Cream Company carries on the dulcet tradition, even creating new flavors based on customer suggestions, including lemon-oreo-lavender, and Rahm Rasin—a version of rum raisin that enacts tax legislation. The unique flavors bring out the underlying notes of individual ingredients, just as the blue-and-white awning links the parlor's history to a modern sense of nostalgia.
