Rich, gooey, sweet and delicious - frozen custard is the taste of summer evenings here in the mid-west. Made with more eggs yolks than traditional ice cream so it's thicker, it's often swirled with flavorings and toppings for a truly indulgent treat.
St. Louis is blessed with quite a number of great local frozen custard shops. Ted Drewe's is one of the most famous; our favorite is Fritz's - we love to order the 'Turtle Concrete', ultra-thick custard that's swirled with caramel and chopped pecans. It's so dense you can turn the cup upside down and it won't shift!
Have you tried it? What's your favorite flavor combination?
