Many Americans look only at price. They only see that this cone is twice the price of that other one. Real frozen custard costs over twice as much as the cheap ice milk that is normally served as soft serve. And those are at least a dairy product. Many of the cheap places use what amounts to non-dairy creamer powder to make their soft-serve. The number one seller of ice cream in America isn't Ben & Jerry's, it's McDonald's. That said, enoug Americans do put quality over price that there is a market for the real stuff.

While you make that case as far as quality fresh ingredients you also have to make sure the homework is done on Magical Flavors as well.

It's like a top shelf spirit. Many people will gladly pay & will either drink it straight or expect top quality mixers in their cocktails.

Milwaukee sells more Frozen Custard than anywhere else and has become known as the "Custard Capital of the World."

We're going to Milwaukee for the State Fair this summer — I can already taste the custard at Kopp's!

I live in Milwaukee and can't stand custard.  It's overrated.  Soft serve is okay on the cheap, but real hard packed, hand scooped ice cream is almost impossible to find around these parts and I miss that!

I live in WI and grew up on a dairy farm, I like frozen dairy treats in any form except for those cheap ice creams that crystallize at the drop of a hat....

I don't think that I have ever had "real" frozen custard. As an earlier poster mentioned, the frozen custard that I did have was probably soft serve. 
 
Cost has been mentioned. I don't see how adding egg ups the price. Eggs are cheap.

Eggs may be cheap, but not as cheap as the seaweed-based emulsifiers.

Personally I prefer gelato and particularly salted caramel.  Almost any brand.

It also has a higher milk fat content and is a denser product which weighs more per ounce.
"The frozen custard that I did have was probably soft serve." 
That's a Yogi Berra-ism!
If it was Frozen Custard, then it wasn't soft serve and vice versa!" />"
2 entirely different products!

We have Culvers in Indianapolis so I have a great frozen custard to compare to ice cream ( we just got a Graters!!). Frozen custard for cones, milk shakes, concrete mixers. Regular ice cream for sundies & banana splits.

Custard has a higher milk-fat content and, with eggs, more protein as well.
 
It is denser than DQ or Tastee-Freeze and has a far richer flavor.
 
Here in the McKinney area we have both Culvers and Freddies as well as some local independents.  Back in NoVa we enjoyed it at Frozen Dairy Bar, a small local chain, and several single location mom & pops, including the locally legendary Carl's in Fredericksburg.

The last time I had frozen custard was in Chicago. My family never had it, they all love it. Nothing better in my mind.....................It goes great with a slice of Portillos chocolate cake.............

pnwchef, Sorry, I was not correcting, I thought  another Chicago spot had killer cake also. My wife and daughter lived for that treat. I had a bite...sometimes.
