Frozen Custard In The Dark


As mentioned several times on this blog, Ted Drewes is a St. Louis institution, serving freshly made frozen custard made from natural ingredients. During the summer, the lines go out into the street. What's going on on a chilly November night?

It's still there dispensing its nectar to connoisseurs. Only a few are hardy enough to go out in the autumn weather. In the next couple of weeks, they convert the parking lot to Christmas tree sales, then back to custard in the new year.

I posted some other photos of Ted Drewes at night last month, when I brought some friends from out of town.

TOMORROW: Konichiwa, y'all

I went to the website you listed and I'm surprised they don't sell coffee or something warm since frozen custard is a seasonal business. Maybe they make enough during the summer to sustain the lean winter months.

I love the yellow cups used for the frozen custards. It reminds me of Nathan's lemonade cup.

Ted Drewes! Got to eat some of that yummy custard back in the late 1980s when one of my sons' elementary school classes made a field-trip-by-train to St. Louis. Yummy.
