COOKIE DOUGH CREATIONS Free Samples or buy a mini for $3.50. Menu
Cookie Dough Creations was founded in 1994 when Jim Bewersdorf began making cookie dough pies out of his home and selling them to restaurants. Soon Jim’s original Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie was being sold in more than 100 restaurants in Chicagoland.
In 1995 the retail store opened its doors in Naperville, Illinois. To our knowledge, this store is the only place on the planet selling raw edible cookie dough. They feature 8 flavors of raw dough, 16 flavors of ice cream. They never use mixes, artificial ingredients, or frozen products. They’re a small, local operation with a lot of heart – no fluff, no filler, just the best desserts you’ve ever tasted, straight from the mixing bowl.

We'll conclude the tour at a new Gelato shop that we are really excited about. If you've not tried Gelato, you're definitely in for a treat! Sweet Home Gelato provides free samples of Gelato and Sorbet flavors to all customers, so tasting is covered.  They also carrie an assortment of baked goods that are Vegan and Gluten Free.  They are provided by Holcomb Hollow which is located in Mundelein Illinois.  They also feature Hansa Coffee which is based out of Libertyville, Illinois.  We are really excited about their Pour Over Coffee and Cold Brew. Their flavors change quite a bit, but my two favorites are Mint Chip and our new Heath Bar!

What is gelato?
Gelato (Italian Ice Cream) is smoother & denser than American ice cream. Gelato is made with whole milk, eliminating cream & butter fat, making it a healthier choice. Since temperature plays a role in the distinct flavors and smooth texture, our gelato is served 10-15 degrees warmer than ice cream. When you are craving something sweet, enjoy our gelatos and sorbets without the guilt!
