Windy City Sweets STEVE DALE and paul lisnek Ice-Creams


with Paul Lisnek discussing the attributes of my ice-cream

In the regular segment to support restaurants and small businesses, a shout out to Windy City Sweets (3308 N.Broadway) owner John Manchester can heard HERE on my WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Other World radio show. I explain the real story behind the Banana Pudding Ice-Cream (with banana ice-cream, graham crackers and marshmallows) named for me and this Paul Lisnek guy from WGN-TV.

Windy City Sweets offers their own various chocolates and homemade s’mores, and fudge as well as over 40 kinds of licorice. Who knew that there are so many varieties of licorice? This includes licorice from Australia, Germany, Italy and Denmark. The store literally ships chocolates and candies around the world.

We talk about candy comfort and how candy can help us to feel good – something we need right about now.

That ice-cream, which Lisnek shared his name with mine wasn’t going to work for him, so he begged Manchester to name an ice-cream after him, Peppermint Paul. Now, Lisnek and I will see who’s ice-cream sells best and we’ll each make a donation to an animal-related charity.
