Midwest Living Review
A visit to this little wonderland of sugar is sure to thrill just about any kid -- and will please adults with even a hint of a sweet tooth, too. Yum Yum Tree has been making ice cream since 1987, and it's always got something special on tap. For instance, there's the Bailey's Irish Cream flavor owner Lucille Kirkegaard devised for the festival her town (Baileys Harbor -- get it?) holds every year. It's divinely smooth, and safe for children, though there are plenty of other tastes to occupy their mouths. Like the caramel corn, fudge, pastries or pecan, peanut and cashew brittle, which are also made at the store. Those looking for more exotic tastes can take a candy-focused trip around the globe because the sweets on sale are imported from all over the world. (Fans of Zout -- salted licorice -- will be especially delighted; they'll find more varieties of it at Yum Yum Tree than anywhere else for miles around.) If saltwater taffy or a scoop of Door County cherry on a waffle cone aren't what you're craving, there's a deli in the shop that serves sandwiches to eat on the little porch outside. Do note that, like many places in the county, Yum Yum Tree is only open from May through October.
