Frozen custard ice cream traces its origins back to Europe, where the creamy, frozen treat was reserved for the elite.

With quality ingredients and a passion for perfection, our custard is a nod to the past but with a flavor that’s distinctly contemporary.
Frozen Custard Origins
The story of frozen custard ice cream is as rich and decadent as its creamy texture. In the cobbled streets of 17th-century Europe, frozen custard ice cream was born. Crafted with just eggs, cream, and sugar, it was a dessert that only the elite could indulge in. Stately homes and royal banquets saw the earliest versions of this dessert, where it was cherished for its smooth finish and luxurious mouthfeel. But like all great things, it wasn’t destined to remain hidden from the world for long.
As immigrants traveled to the New World, they brought with them their cherished recipes. America’s burgeoning boardwalks and bustling fairs of the 20th century witnessed the rise of this creamy delight. No longer reserved just for the aristocrats, it found its way into the hands of everyday people, becoming a symbol of joy and celebration. Its growing popularity was undeniable, and soon, it was an integral part of American dessert culture.
