Do you have man breasts? Try shopping for all your dairy needs at Oberweis, where Bovine Growth Hormone, commonly used in cows, is eschewed for a more natural taste (other possible side-effects of rBGH include cancer, diabetes, and antibiotic resistance). The hormone-free milk is delicious, too. Packaged in glass containers, just like the milkman used to deliver, the milk is stored behind stainless steel doors that block out deleterious light.
The Wicker Park store offers an array of milk and dairy products, everything from sugarless 2% chocolate milk to ice cream churned with a higher butter fat content, making it far richer and creamier than other brands. The fountain menu includes sundaes, shakes, waffle cones, ice cream pies by the slice and much, much more. Party kits chock full of ice cream cake and/or quarts of ice cream with toppings are also available for purchase.
Don't have time to drop by the store? For only $2.50 per delivery, all this can be left at your doorstep. Pick up a "Moola Card," which also functions as a loyalty card, earning you points towards rewards every time you use it. Every 100 points gives you five flex dollars. The real reward, though, is a healthy dairy product.
