What is Frozen Custard?
Fresh frozen custard is prepared fresh at the place of sale. A true custard is a gourmet ice cream treat. It contains milk, butter and eggs - all natural food products. It is considered a dense dessert with no "air" pumped into it (like traditional soft serve ice cream). It is known for it's creamy texture and smooth consistency.
Custard Ice Cream originated on Coney Island in about 1919. It was sold as a carnival treat and quickly grew in popularity. In the coming years, custard could be found in Atlantic City and other East Coast resort communities.
By 1932, the Kirkhoff family of Lafayette, Indiana opened a shop and is considered the oldest continuously operating custard stand. In 1933, it was introduced to the Chicago Worlds Fair. Following the fair, the dessert became popular throughout the Midwest. Milwaukee, Wisconsin has the highest capita concentration of frozen custard shops in the world.
