Milwaukee, Wisconsin is the frozen custard capital of the world. That its landscape is semi-arctic for half the year does not stop Wisconsonites from crowding into custard stands. When we pulled into Kopp’s on a Saturday, MTM laughed at how long it took us to find a parking space. “Leave it to Wisconsin people to wear fourteen layers of clothes, stand in the snow and stuff their faces with cold custard in January.”
Frozen custard may be a Wisconsin mainstay, but it was invented on Coney Island, New York. Two ice cream peddlers added egg yolks to standard ice cream way back in the early 1900′s, and the decadent texture of custard was born.
In case you were wondering, the egg yolks make ice cream richer and creamier, without the ice crystals and lumps that might haunt a typical gallon of vanilla from the freezer case. But, the egg yolks mean frozen custard is something that must be consumed fresh, just as it is ejaculated from the mouth of the big stainless steel machine.
