Post Lists Vienna's Neilson's Tops For Ice Cream/Frozen Custard

Joe H. | Jul 10, 2003 05:31 AM

In the local insert of today's Post is a lengthy, exhaustive article where the reporter literally ate her way through as many as 50 different ice cream and frozen custard stands looking for one that reminded her of what she tasted in her childhood in Georgia. From Milwaukee Frozen Custard to Carl's to Dickey's to Damascus to La Plata to Klein's to Twin Kiss she really seemed to go everywhere.
Neilson's, the franchised outpost of the Salt Lake City original, was picked as her favorite. Neilson's, for those who haven't been, is very similar (but not as rich) to Milwaukee's Kopp's which is thought by many to be the best frozen custard on earth. Neilson's owner worked at Kopp's before starting his first Salt Lake store. My wife and I have become addicted to Neilson's since it opened about six months ago. The custard is rich, creamy with excellent flavorings although it does not have "chunks" as many others do. Expect even longer lines now that this article has appeared.
Two suggestions: caramel butterscotch sundae with chopped nuts or a concrete-any flavor-also made with chopped nuts. The concrete with nuts is expensive, $5.25, but worth every penny and every calorie!
