Our first stop was to Fitz’s, a St. Louis institution best known for their premium root beer. After looking through the menu, we both decided on ice cream floats. I ordered The Better Brown Cow (Fitz’s Draft Cream Soda topped with chocolate ice cream) and Dan got a traditional Root Beer Float.
|Best cream soda I have ever had.|
|Somehow, I was STILL hungry after this.|
The custard is so thick that the cup is handed to you upside down. I ordered a giant cup of custard (shocking, I know,) but decided not to force myself to finish it like I had done the day before at Fitz’s. If only I could have packaged up what I didn’t eat…SO GOOD!
|Smooth and silky.|
Since I was on such a frozen custard high, when I saw Sheridan’s Frozen Custard in Kansas City, KS, I nearly pissed my pants. I was all set to order a simple chocolate custard, until I saw a poster for a special blend that included Hershey’s Kisses and cookie dough pieces. I had to have it. This custard wasn’t nearly as good as Ted Drewes, but it did the trick in satisfying my new found daily custard craving.
|Note Dan's body language in this pic. He is disgusted with my custard intake.|
Last but not least was a trip to my old familiar ice cream paradise – Baskin Robbins. Not sure if it was because I was on vacation, but the Cappuccino Blast I ordered tasted so much better here than it ever did in Brooklyn.
