Gelato has been enjoying a long run in the spotlight here in the U.S., but custard is the preferred sub-genre of ice cream of many of us who grew up in the Midwest.

Andy’s Frozen Custard, which now has locations in Round Rock and Pflugerville, was my family’s special treat growing up.

(Was? Who am I kidding. It’s still our favorite.)

As a custard lover, I was delighted to try Yeti Frozen Custard a few weeks ago. It’s an Austin-based product from Andy Ramos and Brad Hardin, who used to have a food truck and are now focused on retail. They now have eight flavors of custard that are sold in a number of locations, including Sprouts, Wheatsville Food Co-op, Quickie Pickie, Royal Blue, Central Market and other neighborhood markets. (They also selling the custard in Whole Foods in Colorado, Kansas, Utah and New Mexico, but not in Austin.)

I tried the cinnamon toast version, which hinted at both the buttery spiced toast and the breakfast cereal, and the other varieties include bourbon vanilla, chocolate, roasted strawberry, lemon lavender, coffee, mint chip and blueberry pancake. They cost between $5.99 and $6.99 each.
