Ice Cream Store Round-Up: Straw Hat

Summer and ice cream go together like peanut butter and jelly. I could keep going with great pairings (like oreos and peanut butter) but I’ll move on with this post.

In the summer, my boyfriend and I like to go on motorcycle rides. Now some riders will say you don’t need a destination, you just ride. But I like having a destination or something fun to do to break up the ride. That’s where my “Ice Cream Store Round-Up” posts will come in. We like checking out little ice cream stands on our rides.

Our first (definitely not first ice cream stop of the season…just the first one I’m writing about) is the Straw Hat in Twin Lake. I was in Twin Lakes for work a couple weeks ago — missed my turn and found this place!

The Straw Hat is a little roadside walkup stand that has all the standard ice cream options plus some food. You can see Lake Mary from their front benches, and it’s a good place to sit and people watch in the summer. We were down there on a Thursday and the main road was pretty busy for mid-week. We both got a shake — rootbeer, and peanut butter chocolate (seeing a trend here?). The sizes are very generous and the flavors were decent…almost a little too much peanut butter and not enough chocolate in mine (almost!).

It’s definitley a cute place if you’re down in that area…which is basically Illinois!
