Berkshire's Old Fashioned Frozen Custard is "real" frozen custard ice cream. Created from the concepts of Merle Berkshire and his homemade frozen custard making, he opened his first parlor in Princeton, WV more than 15 years ago. He developed and enhanced the products' quality to make our frozen custard and our "Homemade" waffle products so "unique" and flavorful. When we say Berkshires Frozen Custard, we are defining ice cream that's rich, smooth and creamy on the spoon. Ice cream that melts slowly into a delicious tongue-coating custard. Our frozen custard is different from regular ice cream in three ways: 1) an egg emulsifier, 2) a soft serve consistency, and 3) a dense, rich, silky-smooth texture with less air than your typical soft serve ice cream. Our frozen custard is served warmer than hard ice cream the reason being, the warmer an ice cream the sweeter the taste. We serve our Frozen Custard in our waffle cones and bowls made from his private recipe giving everything a wonderful "homemade" taste.
We are an Old fashioned Frozen Custard Parlor offering traditional frozen custard ice cream desserts while integrating new ideas and products to our menu. We always have the traditional flavors of Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry Frozen Custard and offer a different Flavor of the Week (FOTW) each week. Our custard consists of fresh milk, fresh cream, sugar, non-fat milk, and egg yolks. Our custard mix is ultra-pasteurized and does contain some preservatives for stabilization and shelf-life in our refrigerated coolers. We use our custard ice cream and homemade waffle products to build cones, cups, sundaes, banana splits, milkshakes, fruit smoothies, iced coffees, latte's, frappes, soda floats, swirls, cakes, pies and ice cream sandwiches along with our hand-packed pints and quarts for take-out. Let us create your favorite ice cream dessert!
