For more than 60 years, Valpo Velvet ice cream has been the stuff sweet-lovers’ dreams are made of. Join the tradition at their colorful and funky shop (you can’t miss it—it’s the building painted with the multicolored cows), which serves not only ice cream, but made-on-site sandwiches, soups and lunches that are utter deliciousness. Call ahead, and you can take a guided tour behind the scenes and watch ice cream being made. At Valpo Velvet, they pride themselves in making homemade and natural foods. Their ice creams and other frozen products have been made for over 60 years. Their soups, sandwiches and daily specials are also made from scratch. Whether it be an old fashioned milk shake or malt, or a delicious ice cream soda, you can find it there. Customers have been coming there for 60 years to get the best banana splits, turtle sundaes, and their specialty – the Valpo Velvet Viking! Sit down and view their old fashioned parlor with a bowl of delicious soup or chili. Their sandwiches are made with homemade bread and are different than ordinary sandwiches.
