$5 for $10 Worth of Desserts
During chilly months, patrons warm up with hot chocolate, Bop’s cobbler a la mode, strawberry shortcake, and pecan-studded fudge brownies warmed to a gooey consistency. Another speciality includes the cookie sundae: a warm cookie stuffed with custard and topped with Hershey’s chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and a cherry. Bops’ frozen treats include classic Concretes ($4.39–$4.99)—blends of custard and toppings that are so thick you can turn them upside-down. Concrete flavors include the Amazin’ Grace with cheesecake pieces and raspberry or Anna Banana with bananas and strawberries. The dessertery also whips up create-your-own treats ($3.19+), which allow customers to choose their desired concoction from a list of sundaes, floats, shakes, malts, and concretes, then customize it with more than 40 toppings that include mixed nuts, fresh fruit, and candy such as Oreos and cookie dough.
Bops Frozen Custard Flowood
To demonstrate just how old-fashioned it is, Bops Frozen Custard Flowood’s staff keeps its ice cream at the same temperature as Theodore Roosevelt’s bedroom thermostat: approximately 26 degrees. Whipped with very little air to maintain a dense flavor, Bops’ flagship frozen custard finds its way into sundaes, banana splits, and concretes, in which the custard and toppings are blended until the mixture is thick enough to turn upside down. Fruit smoothies and shaved ice in 26 flavors cool down mouths after heated exchanges with rival debate gangs, and a selection of take-home pies and custards keeps tempers chilled for days to come.
