The Best Ice Cream and Frozen Custard in the Lake Counry Area.

Growing up in Wisconsin, ice cream and frozen custard become a staple in your family. I have lived here all my life. I have had ice cream and frozen custard almost everywhere. There is something about diggin’ your spoon into a big bowl of frozen paradise that reverts you right back to your childhood. I sometimes say I enjoy the creaminess of frozen custard, whereas other days I prefer the airy texture of ice cream. So the great debate, which one is better?

Ice Cream vs. Frozen Custard Facts

  • Ice Cream: It is made from milk and cream, stirred slowly and contains abput 50% air.
  • Frozen Custard: Similar to ice cream-made with eggs in addition to cream and sugar. The eggs really make a difference and give it a thicker, creamier and smoother texture than ice cream.

    Can’t believe you forget about Wholly Cow Custard in Delafield. Right up there with LeDuc’s in my book. Quaint shop right next to Zin, another of my favorites. Nothing better than a lunch at Zin with a custard cone for dessert from the Wholly Cow
