The origins of frozen custard can be traced back in 1919 to New York’s Coney Island. To create a smoother texture, ice cream vendors added egg yolks to their ice cream. This gave it the ability to stay frozen for longer. Frozen yogurt is slightly lower in calories than ice cream and has more protein and less saturated fat.
The World’s Fair in Chicago in 1933 had introduced frozen custard to the midwest. It was especially popular in Wisconsin’s northernmost state. Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was home to many famous shops that opened between the 1930s and 1940s. It is now known as the “Frozen Custard Capital” of the world.
Over the years, frozen custard gained popularity throughout the Midwest. This new cousin to ice cream started expanding its geographic reach. There are now frozen custard shops and products all over the United States, as well as in the UK and Australia.
A delicious scoop of frozen custard is the best thing to eat on a hot summer’s day. National Frozen Custard Day can be celebrated in the best way! These are some ideas to try:
Shops selling frozen custard have opened all across the United States as the popularity of frozen custard continues to grow. Culver’s is just one of many restaurants that offer frozen cream to their customers. Freddy’s and Ritter’s are also options.
Leon’s is a famous frozen custard shop that was established in Milwaukee in 1942. It not only serves delicious custard but also retains the classic drive-in feel that was so popular during the 1950s. The scene is located in downtown Milwaukee and feels right out of Laverne and Shirley’s 1970s sit-com.
Leon’s Frozen Custard is still family-owned and all the flavors sell out quickly, so each batch is always fresh. The basic flavors are usually vanilla, butter pecan and chocolate. Each day has its own flavor: cinnamon, maple walnut mint strawberry, raspberry, and so on.

A recipe for homemade icecream is different from a frozen custard recipe because it contains egg yolks. It does require planning ahead as the egg yolks must be added to the ice cream base before it can cool.
