Goodberry’s Frozen Custard
So, what makes frozen custard so special? Well, normally, ice cream is made from milk, cream, or a combo of the team, while frozen custard is made from milk, cream, and oh-so-special addition of egg yolks, making it a bit richer and creamier. Goodberry’s Frozen Custard is creating some fantastically delicious frozen custard that will absolutely make your tastebuds do a happy dance. Order your favorite flavor and mix in fresh fruit and other toppings, they also offer a different “flavor of the day” that you can find on their website.
