"Sweet Bliss" to quote one customer. Come on by. You've GOTTA try it!!!! You won't go 
back to hard or soft-serve ice cream.

But, that doesn't necessarily mean they know WHAT Frozen Custard is....what really 
differentiates it from other ice creams.

If you If you see frozen custard advertised and it is not being made like this, then you are not enjoying authentic frozen custard!
It must be made fresh as above and scooped, not swirled

THE FACTS

To understand the reason for the great taste of Frozen Custard is to understand the 
ingredients required for it to be authentic. Frozen Custard must contain at least 10% 
butterfat and 1.4% egg yolk. Frozen Custard achieves its creaminess through a 
production process that produces less air ("overrun") and fewer ice crystals than 
traditional ice cream.

By comparison, traditional ice cream must also contain 10% butterfat. Greater richness of 
the traditional  ice creams is often achieved by using higher percentages of butterfat. 
Some of the gourmet ice creams contain as much as 17% or more butterfat.
In addition, the amount of air beaten into Frozen Custard is about 20%. This percentage 
of air is called "overrun." Traditional ice cream can have as much as 100% overrun. Or, in 
other words, the volume will double due to the amount of air in the final product. The more 
air the ice cream has, the coarser the texture of the ice cream due to the size of ice 
crystals. Because Frozen Custard has such a low "overrun,"  there are fewer ice crystals 
in the product.

The result is an extremely clean and smooth taste sensation that is said to be creamier 
than ice creams that have a higher butterfat content. One person has been quoted as 
describing Frozen Custard as it "Looks like soft serve, tastes, like silk!" We couldn't agree 
more.

In keeping with the  Frozen Custard tradition, at Scooter's, we make our Frozen Custard, 
using the best available and freshest ingredients, all day, every day.

Frozen Custard History

......A CHICAGO ORIGINAL

Frozen custard is a gourmet ice cream treat that first originated on Coney Island, NY as a 
carnival treat at the turn of the century. The popularity of Frozen Custard quickly grew 
and was the rage of the east coast resort areas. In 1933, Chicago was responsible for 
bringing Frozen Custard to the midwest for the World's Fair. After the fair, frozen custard 
became wildly popular in towns like Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City and Lafayette, 
Indiana. But, it pretty much disappeared from Chicago.

Now, Scooter's has brought Frozen Custard back to the Windy City where it rightfully 
belongs. And, we are actually using the same dairy that provided the custard to the 1933 
World's Fair to insure that our product is authentic.

And, What the Heck is a Concrete?
