We did a lot of business at the Original Plush Horse the other day. We left with a birthday cake, two pies, cupcakes, a couple of chocolate milk shakes, a chocolate soda, a banana split and eight--count 'em, eight--quarts of ice cream. The Original Plush Horse at 12301 South 86th Avenue in Palos Park has been the "sweetest" landmark in the south suburbs for more than 75 years. You can't go there and just walk away with a waffle cone, can you? The trick is to decide which of about 40 flavors of ice cream you want to take home with you. I'll admit there are a couple of flavors that I'd like to see on the list--and I've make ownership aware of them--but it's hard to complain when there are so many delicious options. You can't take them all home, right? So on every visit to the Original Plush Horse, we choose eight. This time, we selected butter pecan, chocolate chip, cookies and cream, peach, cinnamon, strawberry, coconut gelato and apple pie. Oh, did I forget pralines and cream and banana fudge gelato and Rocky Road? Next time. Maybe by then they will have added orange sherbet or orange pineapple or rainbow sherbet or chocolate almond to the menu.
