about this item

Frozen custard is more than a dessert in Milwaukee. It’s a culture, a lifestyle and a passion. From the stand that inspired television’s Happy Days to the big three—Gilles, Leon’s and Kopp’s—take a tour through the history of this guilty pleasure. Learn about its humble origins as an unexpected rival to ice cream and its phenomenal success as a concession at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1933 that made the snack famous. Find the stories behind your favorite flavor at local festivals and homegrown neighborhood stands. Milwaukee authors and editors Kathleen McCann and Robert Tanzilo launch a celebration of custard lore, featuring a stand guide and much more. Dig into what makes Milwaukee the Frozen Custard Capital of the World.
