Did You Know?
What is the difference between frozen custard and ice cream, you might ask? It comes down to one additional ingredient and the machine that is used for each. Both ice cream and Frozen Custard are made with milk, cream, and sugar. The additional ingredient that gives Frozen Custard it’s creamy texture is actually pasteurized egg yolk!
Ice cream is usually served at 22-24 degrees Fahrenheit, flash frozen to about -10 degrees Fahrenheit, and stored at -20 degrees. Serving temperature for ice cream is 5 to 8 degrees Fahrenheit. Whereas, frozen custard is served at about 18-19 degrees!
Frozen custard first originated on Coney Island, NY as a carnival treat at the turn of the century. In 1933, Chicago was responsible for bringing Frozen Custard to the Midwest for the World’s Fair. After the fair, frozen custard became wildly popular in towns like Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Lafayette, Indiana and it can now be enjoyed right here in Topeka at Freddy’s!
