Best Dessert

Ah, desserts! Whether you think of them as a means of relieving stress (after all, “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts”) or simply as a sugary treats, there’s no doubt the Chippewa Valley is full of sweet spots. Ramone’s Ice Cream Parlor (502 Galloway St., Eau Claire) was voted as No. 1 for its many flavors of Chocolate Shoppe brand ice cream, including Zanzibar chocolate, Superman, and lemon poppyseed. Coming in second is Olson’s Ice Cream and Deli (611 N. Bridge St., Chippewa Falls), legendary for its ice cream, shakes, and malts. Norske Nook (13804 W Seventh St., Osseo), known far and wide for its award-winning pies, placed third. — Emilee Wentland
