Freckles Frozen Custard
Founded in 2000 by college buddies Don McKinney and James Clary, Freckles Frozen Custard crafts its creamy creations using milk and eggs chosen from Midwest farms. Starting with some vanilla custard blended with Tahitian and Madagascar vanilla beans, customers can take control of their own dessert destinies, mixing up custom concoctions with toppings such as hot fudge, bananas, and Twinkies. The shop—which has moved from 71st and Mingo to a new location at 81st and Sheridan—offers a chilly cornucopia of specialty treats such as the Brown Derby, a fusion of custard, brownie, and fudge intended to be worn atop the head. Elsewhere on the menu, colorful scoops of Italian shaved ice form summery frozen rainbows atop their cones, cooling off overheated tongues with fruit flavors and no-sugar-added options. The custard's smooth consistency pairs well with over 25 fruit and candy add-on options, and customers can further personalize their sweet treats with a cream or sour taste. Freckles Frozen Custard also stocks a full spread of creamy standards, calling back to a simpler era with creamy malts, shakes, floats, and custard pies in the shape of Dwight Eisenhower.
