Frozen Sweet specializes in Mid-Western style frozen custard. Genuine frozen custard has at least 1.4% egg yolk (pasteurized) and at least 10% milk fat, and is made in a special machine created for producing frozen custard only.
In our custard machines, the custard travels from a refrigerated hopper through a valve into a freezing chamber lined with beaters. As you watch, the frozen custard is pushed through (extruded) out the front of the machine and into a waiting bucket, ready to be served. Because it is not held in the chamber, there is very little air beaten into the custard, referred to as “overrun.” This low overrun (20-25%) is what gives frozen custard its wonderfully dense and creamy texture, or “mouthfeel.”
By comparison, soft-serve custards, yogurt, and ice creams are made using what is known as a batch freezer, where the mixture remains in the machine and the overrun is as much as 100%.
Since it is freshly made, our frozen custard is served at a temperature of 17-21 degrees, and is neither flash-frozen nor held at sub-zero temperatures. This allows the flavors to really come through!
