Greenfield, WI: To their door or yours
Yes, so it's getting cold in this part of the world — but don't give us that 'bringing coals to Newcastle' bit. Winter, in our view, is exactly when you need ice cream the most. You don't need to be reminded of summer in summer.
Top-notch ice cream isn't all that hard to find, though frozen custard, with its extra egg-yolk richness, is. New Yorkers have embraced the stuff at the growing number of Shake Shack outposts; if you want to know what Shake Shack is referencing, though, a trip to Milwaukee's Kopp's Frozen Custard is a must.
For 60 years it's been a treat for Wisconsinites (along with their good burgers) and the gold standard of custards — but you had to be in the neighborhood to taste some. So it's happy news that they now ship, which means you can score some for your Thanksgiving dessert.
They do orders of 10-pint packs for $75, plus shipping. Even if that sounds like a lot of custard, it's a safe bet that it'll be gone before you know it.
