I was checking out at the grocery store near my house in Phoenix Arizona and the cashier noticed the frozen confection I picked up called frozen custard.
The cashier was an older woman in her 60s and told me she never forking heard of frozen custard and asked me what it was. I told her it’s like frozen soft serve but much richer and smoother because it’s made with eggs. I was surprised she lived all her forking 60 something life and never heard of frozen custard but then I thought about it a little forking more and realize that frozen custard really isn’t an Arizona Thing.
I don’t forking know why?
Maybe you need to live near a forking boardwalk to enjoy frozen custard?
We do have some frozen custard right here in Phoenix. I’ve seen it at Freddie’s, Culver’s and Rita’s but they aren’t the same.
Frozen custard was invented in Coney Island New York in 1919 by ice-cream vendors Archie and Elton Kohr. The brothers found out that just adding egg yolks to their ice-cream helped the treat stay cold longer and also gave it a richer silkier texture.
Some people from Phoenix never heard of frozen custard!
