Guess what you get when you take the 2 best fall snacks in Illinois and put them together? The BEST FALL EVER. Where to get apple cider donut ice cream sundaes.

Enjoy Illinois in the Fall


We're big autumn lovers at 97ZOK and living in the Midwest comes with the added joy of the most colorful show outside from October until the snow falls.

Around Illinois, it's all about apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes. Getting out and doing something fun for everyone may be why we tell people you'll find us at one of these places, but honestly, it's about the food you'll find that just tastes better in the fall.

Apple Cider Donut Ice Cream Sundae

I had my very first cider donut sundae in the fall of 2020. It was a year I (we) ate quite a few things I hadn't before. Whenever I had a chance to get out and eat away from home, I took advantage of it.

We all owe a lot of gratitude to the people who own the businesses that feed us.

One Cherry Valley, Illinois business shared on Facebook that they were going to be smoking ribs and grilling pork chop sandwiches in their parking lot, and inside they were serving cider donut sundaes.
