Putz's Creamy Whip

2673 Putz Drive, Cincinnati, OH - (513) 681-8668

Putz’s is a drive-up stand with a menu of hot dogs, foot-longs, burgers, and bar-b-que, but it’s ice cream that stars. Smooth and rich as custard, it is an ivory-hued soft-serve that is great swirled into a sugar cone or waffle cone or heaped into a cup and enjoyed for its simple, pure, creamy goodness. Or you can have it whipped up for an extra-thick milk shake or malt or mixed into a soda.

The best way to enjoy Putz’s Creamy Whip, in our opinion, is to come for a sundae or banana split. Banana splits are long plastic boats that hold three mounds of ice cream plus all the toppings. Sundaes are medium-size plastic cups filled with custard and topped with whatever you like. The best of all sundaes is the turtle, for which the bottom of the cup is filled with caramel, the caramel is topped with custard, then the custard is topped with chocolate syrup. And the chocolate syrup is mounded with whipped cream, chopped nuts, and a cherry.

Putz’s is just off the highway in a little grove all its own (on a street that was rechristened to honor the long-time favorite destination-dessert place). There are pleasant picnic tables alongside that are an ideal place to spoon into creamy-whip perfection. We’ll see you there some time this summer!

Turtle sundaes are big throughout the Midwest; and there are few better than the one Putz's serves in a plastic cup.

Looking at this lovely hot caramel sundae, I would say my nephew chose wisely.

What's not to like about a combination of chocolate cake, hot fudge, vanilla soft serve, and whipped cream? Don't forget the cherry on top!

Putz's has been so popular for so long that the street on which it's located has been renamed Putz Place.
