10 Places to Treat Your Sweet Tooth

BOB JO'S FROZEN CUSTARD
We can't begin this list any other way but by acknowledging the granddaddy of all treats, Bob Jo's Frozen Custard. Decked out in neon blue lights,

Bob Jo's features a long line that's worth it every time. In business since 1947, the folks at Bob Jo's are clearly doing it right. If you haven't had their frozen custard yet — what rock have you been under? You can't go wrong with a half and half with toasted coconut or really anything else on the menu. Bob Jo's offers vanilla, chocolate and a half and half twist as well a select special flavor each week like blue moon, pistachio or orange creamsicle. They also offer shakes, sundaes and other goodies.

STROH'S ICE CREAM
A downtown staple, it can be hard to resist the urge to visit Stroh's on a stroll through downtown.

With more than 40 flavors of ice cream, there are some seriously hard decisions to make, but it's a pretty tasty situation to be in. If ice cream doesn't suit your fancy, Stroh's also has fat-free soft serve yogurt, sherbet and sorbet.
