The boys and I left the New Amsterdam restaurant completely stuffed. But not so stuffed that we couldn't fit in some ice cream from Emack & Bolio's. The staff was super friendly and welcoming (even though I suspect we arrived shortly before they were about to close).
They had such a fun cone and bowl collection. Since we were on a vacation, I let the boys go hog wild and pick any cone they wanted (instead of being stuck like normal with the plain boring cones).
There were so many awesome choices to pick from but the boys and I finally came to our decisions.
The boys picked fancy cones with ice cream (I am so ashamed as a travel reviewer to admit that I don't remember what they picked as their flavors, I do know that it was amazing ice cream and we look forward to going back to try more). I saw the word malted and I knew I had to get a malted shake with vanilla ice cream. I love malt powder more than just about anything (in the ice cream world). This shake was like angel singing amazing. I choose to believe that it was points free for weight watchers and I sucked that puppy down. We enjoyed our choices as we walked back to our car.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience at Emack & Bolio's and can't wait to go back. If you would like to try them out for yourself, they are located at the Peoria Riverfront Visitor Center.
