When I hear “frozen custard,” I can only think of one place:
There is a Rita’s about 5 minutes or less down the road from where I work, and I’m obsessed. I used to have Wednesday’s off from work, so I would go every Tuesday afternoon to celebrate my mid-week weekend with some water ice and custard.
Alas, I no longer have Wednesdays off, so I stopped consuming so much Rita’s (my sleepy body says boo, but my waistline says thank you).
After some things went down at work (actually not that dramatic but whatever), I decided to treat myself to Rita’s.
I chose the Horchata water ice and had it topped with a massive load of vanilla custard. Custard is so nice because I feel like the end result is much smoother than ice cream, and certainly never has any “icy” feel to it.
The flavors at Rita’s pack a punch, but are never too sweet, at least that’s how I feel anyway. Though to be fair, I don’t eat the flavors like cotton candy or Swedish Fish.
Good custard. Good water ice. Wonderful treat that makes me happy. Win all around.
