Life's most enjoyable treats, such as motorcycles and the scent of freshly cut grass, are best when frozen. Today's side deal churns out another iced treat: for $3, you get $6 worth of custard and more at Ritter's Frozen Custard's Port Orange location.
After greasing the Slip 'n Slide with vegetable oil and shedding winter's fluffy bathrobe, the best way to celebrate summer's approach is with a handful of velvety-soft frozen custard. The Ritter's menu features a cast of six rotating daily custard flavors, including everything from fruit-based favorites such as cherry vanilla and fresh banana to candy-inspired creations like caramel Snickers swirl. Order a cone of the flavor du jour (small $2.59), or opt for a signature Glacier (large $5.28), Ritter's frozen custard mixed with your topping of choice and served upside down to confuse your already delicate perception of reality and emphasize the delicacy's extreme thickness. If a list of more than 22 toppings dizzies your decision-making noodle, submit your fate to the friendly ice-cream slingers and opt for a pre-designed signature sundae such as the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup–filled, whipped-cream-topped Peanut Butter Mountain (medium $4.88).
All of Ritter's creamy confections are churned on site daily and contain only the highest-quality dairy products, as well as a touch of pasteurized egg yolk for maximum richness. The frozen custard is served six degrees warmer than traditional ice cream, which results in a higher level of palatability and softness than the typical crack-prone treat.
Ritter's Frozen Custard
When John Ritter thinks back to 1948, he can almost taste the frozen treats he churned out during his after-school job at the local ice-cream parlor. Now, after a 35-year career as a film animator, he helps others to enjoy similarly sweet memories at Ritter's Frozen Custard. Here, friendly staffers handcraft each batch of frozen custard, an ultrapremium ice cream as smooth as a jazz record dipped in chocolate. At the counter, guests can sample the flavors of the day, which range from tart blueberry to gooey, crunchy mocha-almond fudge. Scoops of classic vanilla—along with more than 25 toppings—fill specialty creations such as brownie sundaes, hand-dipped malts, and freezer-ready ice-cream sandwiches.
