National Frozen Custard Day
At the heart of National Frozen Custard Day is a cold treat loved by many people. At first glance, frozen custard looks like ice cream, but the taste of these desserts is different. However, nothing prevents you from enjoying both on this holiday.
Custard is a very ancient invention of mankind, the origins of which date back to the Roman period. In the 17th century, custard began to be served as an independent dish. It was only in 1919 that they guessed to freeze it: it was done by enterprising ice cream sellers. They quickly noticed that, compared to ice cream, cream had a softer texture and melted much more slowly. Buyers appreciated this original idea.
National Frozen Custard Day draws attention to an unusual dessert, encouraging people to try it. Most find it very tasty.
- Custard comes in a variety of densities, from thin to very thick. This greatly affects its consistency in the frozen state.
- Frozen cream does not store well even in the freezer: it must be eaten immediately.
- Most of all, this dessert is loved in Wisconsin.
