I think right now it would be going to the Tastee Freeze with my friends. One of my best friends is back in the area where we grew up back in the 70s and I was thinking today about how we would pile into his family station wagon and drive out to the west end of Peru, Illinois to the Tastee Freeze for a banana split.
This was a time before there were Dairy Queen’s, at least in the Illinois Valley. Almost every town had a Tastee Freeze. There was the one on the west end of Peru and another one in Spring Valley.
Even John Mellencamp sang about one.
Sucking on a chili dog outside a Dairy Queen just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
