  1. Wow, artisanal frozen custard?

    I love frozen custard, and aside from a long-ago stand they used to have at Great America, I only have it when I visit a friend in Utah, home of Nielsen's Frozen Custard. I had some on a visit last month, and it was as good as ever. However, they only have chocolate, vanilla, and a flavor of the day. Aside from that you can get a "concrete" which is a mix-in. But to me, that would sully what's great about f.c. -- the texture. It would be awesome to try, say, a true coffee or chai-flavored version (and since I like it for breakfast -- yes on the cereal milk!), and still keep the smoothness.

    I like their logo.

      Well, let's hope someone tries it and tells us it's worthy.

      I like it too and I try frozen custard whenever I see it. The two examples in Kansas City last weekend were totally forgettable.

      Haven't been to Flavor Brigade in Oakland yet to try its version.

      Also, occasionally Rick's Ice Cream in Palo Alto makes chocolate custard or lemon custard flavors, scoopable rather than soft serve. They're richer and more velvety than the regular ice cream.

        Flavor Brigade's custard is a solid, perfectly tasty version but it's not amazing or artisanal or anything like that, if you happen to be a frozen custard connoisseur - he doesn't have enough demand for the product to make it remotely worthwhile for him to make his own base in-house. It's worth noting that during the summers he does a caramel custard once a week - I think on Sundays? Haven't tried that yet. I like the plain vanilla.

        I'm definitely interested in trying out this cart...but, though it's not clear, it looks from the picture like they're also serving a scoopable version rather than out of a soft-serve machine - at least in my experience, not using the machine leads to a texture that's not as good.

          I really liked the Earl Gray frozen custard I had at Addie's Pizza Pie. It was just being made (well, loaded into the soft-serve machine) when I got there.

            When I had Addie's, they had made it earlier and were scooping it out of containers. Maybe if we ever get hot weather they'll have it fresh from the machine more often.

              Addie's Pizza Pie now has a link to their frozen custard calendar on their webpage.

                Does Addie's make their own base?

                "Made fresh each day," as per their website, doesn't really tell me anything, since my understanding is that the shelf life of the stuff is such that you pretty much have to throw out whatever you don't sell at the end of the day.

          2. A buddy of mine used to work at Addies and here is the deal, Addies makes their custard fresh every day and they make their own base, they make small batches and usually sell out by the end of the night. The caramel flavored custards are absolutely the BEST!! (in my opinion)

            1. Per Twitter: You can know try their Cereal Milk Frozen Custard at Izakaya Sozai starting Wed 5/25/11. Anyone try it yet?
