Soft ice cream / "Frozen custard"

Chefpaulo | Jun 28, 2009 07:54 AM

Where can one find the smooth, creamy genuine frozen soft ice cream (aka frozen custard made with real dairy products) that I relished as a child of the '50s? I gave up on DQ years ago after having their poly-sorbatized abomination one sweltering summer night and never returned. Last week, I tried Rita's blasphemy that was at almost room temperature and so full of air and fillers, it could have been mistaken for non-dairy dessert topping ( I chucked the white fluff and ate the waffle cone.)

To all who resided in or frequented Glenside back yonder, who remembers the Jack Frost stand at the corner of Limekiln Pike and Mt. Carmel Avenue? THAT was REAL soft ice cream and to which I hold all others as a standard. Where, out here in the western 'burbs, might we indulge again?
