Ted Drewes Frozen Custard is one of the hidden gems of St. Louis. There are two and a half locations, I say half because there is a new stand in the Ballpark Village next to Busch Stadium.
Even though there are only two locations, the frozen cuatard is to die for! I know simply words cannot convince you, but here are a few pictures that might sway you to try it.
They have a large version of the menu on the outside that gives you an idea of everything they offer.
If you are to get a concrete, which is basically a blizzard from Dairy Queen (only unbelievably better), it would look like this:
When they hand it to you, they always hold it upside down like this to show how thick it is. (I missed them doing this because I was helping a lady juggle ice cream and a dog leash. I recreated it though.)
Ted Drewes offers other tasty treats besides concretes. One that I must point out to you is the ice cream sandwich. Now this is no ordinary ice cream sandwich, it is made with Dad’s Cookies. I realize this means nothing to you, let me try to explain.
There is a store that just sells phenomenal homemade cookies, it is called Dad’s Cookies. When you go into the store you see a giant old fashioned cash register and a large balance scale. I’d keep babbling, but I digress.
The location of Ted Drewes I went to, on Grand Avenue is only open during the warmer months. The other location Chipewea Avenue in the St. Louis Hills neighborhood and is open yearround. In the months leafing up to Christmas, the parking lot is filled with Christmas trees and greens you can buy.
I highly recommend making a stop at either location of Ted Drewes when you are in St. Louis!
Sorry the pictures are not of the highest quality. I wanted to share about Ted Drewes, but only had my phone on me.
I promise to post more in the next few days about my other adventures in St. Louis including the Cardinals game I went to yesterday.
