3 Places to Score Sweet Deals on Frozen Custard This Wednesday Only
There seems to be a national day for everything nowadays. But hopefully, this one will make it easier to get through the week, because it involves something sweet, creamy, frozen and free.
This Wednesday, Aug. 8, is National Frozen Custard Day, and that means free — or nearly free — sweet and creamy treats!
Where to Celebrate National Frozen Custard Day 2018
There are a few places celebrating National Frozen Custard Day with some sweet deals and freebies, but first: What exactly is the difference between frozen custard and ice cream?
While ice cream is usually made with milk, cream and sugar, frozen custard is made with all of the above and egg yolks, which give it a thicker, creamier texture. In fact, frozen custard is so dense and creamy, it’s often referred to as a “concrete” or a “concrete mixer” when you add in more sugary good stuff like cookie dough and chocolate chips.
Now that you know what makes frozen custard so sweet and creamy, here’s where to get it for cheap or even free on National Frozen Custard Day.
BurgerFi is celebrating National Frozen Custard Day with totally free frozen custard! Stop by your local BurgerFi any time on Wednesday, Aug. 8, to enjoy a free small custard. And no purchase is necessary — all you have to do is show or mention this offer to receive your free frozen treat.
