Goodberry's locally owned-and-operated creamery has served up frozen custard for more than 20 years, fusing its treats from all-natural ingredients such as milk, cream, and honey. The confectioners choose to whip up new batches of its frozen custard hourly, which ensures maximum flavor and freshness and protects the desserts from enemy infiltration of chemical preservatives and artificial stabilizers. Their flavors are limited to three: vanilla made with real Madagascar beans, rich dark chocolate, and a rotating flavor of the day. Custard connoisseurs looking to bring some personality to their pudding cups can try a famous Goodberry's Carolina concrete ($4.49 for a regular), a custom treat made by decorating your selected flavor with any combination of mix-ins, and then served upside down as a testament to its self-described thickness and in protest to strict gravity laws.
Meanwhile, Goodberry's substantial stable of fresh fruit, nuts, syrups, and other toppings makes for an endless list of concrete combos. Mixers unable to make up their minds can try out the Carolina concrete creator to randomly generate a delicious dessert infused with two mix-ins. Custard can also greet hands in a cup or cone ($2.89 single, $3.49 double, $4.09 triple) or in a one-, two-, or three-scoop sundae ($3.69–$5.19), and frozen-custard cakes and pies make ideal treats for birthday celebrations and for celebrating successful tonsil evictions.
Buyers must choose redemption location at time of purchase.
