Gayety's had the best candy -- true chocolate, not just "flavoring," and such a wide variety of candy types. Ice cream and whipped cream also very special. They made ice cream treats -- cakes, bars, frozen bananas, their own ice cream cones. But within the...More

We were bringing my grandkids for ice cream and when we arrived at Gayety's Chocolates & Ice Creams we found that there were window signs and that Gayety's has closed for good. They opened their doors in 1920, so imagine 98 years of tradition. A...More

Walk through the doors of this shop and take a step back in time. The ice cream is the richest you can buy. All of their specialties can be topped with whipped cream made from the same machine that was used for 50 years. The...More

Their homemade hot fudge is delicious... Their tasty sundaes are huge... And they have a nice selection of sweet homemade candy. I'm not a big fan of vanilla so I always get a hot fudge sundae with CHOCOLATE ice cream--best I've ever had! Go here...More

From its original location in South Chicago to Torrence to Ridge Rd, their version of Banana Split is my favorite, their home made whip cream is the best. They also make their own chocolates and candy that they can ship anywhere. It's worth the drive.
