|Fudge Atomic Sundae|
|In tune indeed|
Two scoops of chocolate ice cream were nestled in a half clamshell dish with whipped cream, cherry, wafer cookies (nice touch) and the already applied chocolate syrup that “hardens” on contact with the ice cream (I’m not a big fan of this but it somehow works with the sundae). Alongside the clam shell is a gravy boat of hot fudgy goodness. The sundae was crying out “Pour some fudge on me!” to the tune of Def Leppard’s famous song (Wikipedia).

Windfall: Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” reached number 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1988 (Wikipedia). According to Margie’s website “Musical legends, Hollywood greats and sports stars — and even famous gangster Al Capone — have found sweet release at Margie's Candies. The Beatles dropped by with dates after performing at Comiskey Park. Years later, a group of men in long black coats walked in and requested the booth where the Fab Four had satThe waitress was a little leery of the men but they proved sincere. Turns out they were the Rolling Stones.” Apparently The Boss himself visited, too, and sat in the same booth.
