    I talked to the owner there and he told me it's not the same as they make in their stores back east. It's missing something, I think he said something about Calif food regulations prevented them from matching the real eastern custard. Ask him, next time you're there. It's good but it can't touch real eastern custard (Culver's). Wish it did.

    Beware: they also have a little freezer stocked with pre-packed pints and quarts of leftover flavors of the day. Dangerous.

    May finally get the real custard in Mission Viejo. New Italian Ice Cream shop (Rita's) from Philly says:

    Q. Tell me about your custard, which is growing in popularity in Southern California.
    A. It's made from a supplier in New Jersey and shipped all over the world. We use so much butter fat in it. If you're going to indulge, indulge in the best possible you can get. The level of fanaticism is similar, if not equal, to In-N-Out Burger. It is unbelievable.

    Whats this? California laws making it difficult for business owners while at the same time ensuring an inferior product? Sorry I am not buying it.

    What sets him apart is that he’s big, and he can skate, and he can protect the puck from anyone. If you’re trying to get it and he doesn’t want you to get, you’re not going to. -Justin Williams on Kopitar

    Frozen custard from Ted Drewes in St. Louis was always a favorite of mine when I would visit family there in the summer. I've had Ted Drewes shipped to me too, lol.
    The richest frozen stuff I eat now is gelato maybe once every couple of months.
    I rather eat custard as a creme brulee, creme caramel, a flan or a savory japanese chawanmushi.

    Just spotted a sign for Rita's frozen custard ( started in Philadelphia). Grand opening 7-29 in Mission Viejo at the Kaleidoscope. Hoping it's the real thing (not like Stricklands).
