A delicious and refreshing cold dessert is celebrated each year on August 8, it is National Frozen Custard Day.
Similar to ice cream, frozen custard is made with eggs in addition to cream and sugar. Today, Custard comes in various flavors for us to enjoy! Culver’s is known for its custard, mixes, cakes, and treats are Culver’s Custard treats… If you are close to one, stop today and grab a treat…
Did you know that Ice cream vendors, Archie and Elton Kohr invented frozen custard on Coney Island, New York in 1919 when they found that adding egg yolks to ice cream created a smoother texture and helped the ice cream stay cold longer?
The Kohr brothers sold 18,640 cones on their first weekend on the boardwalk. Imagine selling that many cones in one weekend!! A 1933 World’s Fair frozen custard stand, in Chicago, helped introduce it to a wider audience so that many more could enjoy this sweet treat.. Late on, Milwaukee, Wisconsin became known as the “unofficial frozen custard capital of the world”.
In honor of National Frozen Custard Day, grab a smooth, sweet and creamy treat!!!
