Jersey Iggy attended this annual foodie festival in Chicago last June 2010 called "Taste of Chicago." It was a summer theme park for your taste buds right in downtown Chicago's Grant Park, where you can sample the Windy City's finest culinary treats in either a "taste" size or a regular meal size!
Admission is free, but you have to purchase ticket stubs in order to buy food, similar to tokens. You are given a map of the food stalls sprawled across the park and you can let your appetite run wild and try something new!
If you're not sure if you're going to like a certain item on the menu, try their "taste portion" which will only cost you about 2 or 3 ticket stubs. If you love it, get the bigger size and chow away!
The Rainbow Cone won us over in the dessert category. It's an icy-sweet fusion of different flavors like strawberry, chocolate, pistachio and orange sherbet. It gives you this delicious sensation of having the rainbow melt in your mouth!
An added treat to this delicious attraction is the Buckingham Fountain, the watery centerpiece to this gastronomical gathering!
Miss Iggy would love to come back for seconds! (And thirds and...)
