CHICAGO — Miko’s Italian Ice wants to party like it’s 1997 — by rolling back its famous cups to original prices.

On Saturday and Sunday, the family business will sell its Italian ices for $1-$4, depending on size. There will be a four-cup limit per each promotional purchase.

The sweet deal is a celebration of Miko’s 25th anniversary. It operates seasonally at 2236 N. Sacremento Ave. in Logan Square and 4125 N. Kimball Ave. in Irving Park.

The walk-up window at Miko’s is known for its variety of flavors, from staples like lemon and mango to more unique offerings like horchata, hibiscus and lychee. The business has more than 30 flavors that change throughout the season, according to a news release.

The original Miko’s opened in Bucktown in spring 1997 with six flavors. The business set up in Logan Square in 1999 and Irving Park in 2016. The original location closed in 2018.

After each season, Miko’s staff taste tests flavors suggested by customers at the walk-up window.
