Jelly Belly Beans and Gino's East Pizza - ahhhh

We took the kids to tour the Jelly Belly Factory in Pleasant Prairie yesterday. They thought it was sooo cool.

This art work is made from Jelly Belly's and depicts the front of the Chicago Art Museum.
And, of course, we couldn't leave with out a big bag of Belly Flops (Jelly Belly's that didn't make the cut, but still taste great.
Then we drove to Lake Geneva to try Gino's East pizza (it had just been on the Food Network).
This is the Gino's Chopped Salad made with chopped romaine and iceberg lettuce, grilled chicken breast, tomatoes, bleu cheese, crisp bacon, black olives, cucumber, red onions, and crispy chips tossed in a sweet red wine viniagrette. We ordered one serving that was so large, all four of us had a serving.
This is Chicago pizza, deep dish, there is nothing scrawny about this pie. We got cheese and sausage, with the sausage being one huge patty. The tomato sauce was amazing. I am not sure if it is as good as Giordano's, so I might have to try both again, just to be positive.
But, it was worth the drive. That's amore!
