Sheridan's Frozen Custard

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by jrheimbach on September 9, 2001

The temperature is 3 degrees below zero and the wind chill factor is 20 degrees below zero. We are freezing cold in the car, yet as we drive by Sheridan's Frozen Custard, there is a line of over 20 cars waiting in the drive-thru to get a frozen dessert. Not only that, there are at least 30 people standing outside, in this freezing cold, to get something cold to eat. What kind of place draws this much business for ice cream when everyone is already miserable from the cold weather? We did not try this treat until the spring when the temperatures had started warming up again. If we had known how delicious this custard tasted, we would have been in line with the winter crowd!

Sheridan's Frozen Custard is not ice cream. It's custard, made every hour at the shop. The texture is smoother, creamier and thicker than ice cream or frozen yogurt. It's also about 90% fat free!

The frozen yogurt comes in a cup and you can add your own toppings. All the toppings we've tasted have been fresh and generous. The pieces of candy are large so they are noticeable. The fudge or caramel toppings are dripping all down the sides, plentiful with each bite. All right, all the calories are in the toppings, but it's so good!!!

My wife always gets the Royal Turtle which is custard covered in hot fudge, caramel, pecans and cherries. One of my daughters loves the Straw-Ana which is custard covered with sliced strawberries and bananas. I like the Elvis Concrete which is custard, peanut butter and bananas all blended up to a firmer consistency.

Definitely plan to try this at least once. Eat lighter during the day so you can afford the calories of the great toppings. Oh, there are heaters which blow warm air on the people ordering from the window, so don't worry about the cold!
