Custard is a relatively new dessert option for the Capital City. No, we’re not talking about those dainty, creamy desserts baked in a ramekin for a special luncheon. We’re talking about the thick, old-fashioned frozen yogurt-like treats that are popular in the Midwest.
Frozen custard, which uses eggs in addition to cream and sugar to get a smoother and dense consistency, finally reached Baton Rouge in March by way of Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, a chain based out of Kansas. Baton Rouge is the first Freddy’s Louisiana location; two others are slated for Lafayette.
