By published February 12, 2016

Fabulously Sweet CreationsIt’s been said by the Travel-Supreme-Beings-That-Be, when you’re on vacation, calories don’t count and it’s OK to eat SWEETS. So it’s completely fine to indulge in Chicago Southland sweets, since you’re traveling.

All things in life should be as fabulous as the delicious treats from Fabulously Sweet Creations in Markham. Choose from Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Pops, Gourmet Apples, Cake Pops, Popcorn Favors and more to fix any craving. If you’re searching for sweet gifts, they make custom-made chocolate covered Oreos or visit their Chocolate Printing Boutique where they can put full color, edible photos, logos and text onto milk and dark chocolates or Belgian Truffles.

Try tea with your sweets at The Pickwick Society Tea Room, Gifts & Antiques. The Tea Cookies are extremely popular as well as the Pickwick Tart.

Maybe fix the craving with a delicious frozen treat or shake at Culver's or Sonic Drive-In with various locations throughout Chicago Southland.

Andy’s Frozen Custard in Burbank and Oak Lawn make custard fresh every single hour. Since they’re open all year round, you can grab Strawberry Shortcake Custard in the spring or you’ll love the Cookie Casanova in the winter.


Life is short, eat dessert first! And that’s just for starters…

We Apologize, The following error has occurred:
Detail: Could not find the included template /includes/none.

Note: If you wish to use an absolute template path (for example, template="/mypath/index.cfm") with CFINCLUDE, you must create a mapping for the path using the ColdFusion Administrator. Or, you can use per-application settings to specify mappings specific to this application by specifying a mappings struct to THIS.mappings in Application.cfc.
Using relative paths (for example, template="index.cfm" or template="../index.cfm") does not require the creation of any special mappings. It is therefore recommended that you use relative paths with CFINCLUDE whenever possible.
