Anderson’s Frozen Custard

Ice Cream Parlor
One of the best

Much of New York State’s frozen custard–soft-serve ice cream made distinctively rich and creamy by its higher egg content–is concentrated in the upper northwest of the state. One of the finest samplings you can try is from Anderson’s Frozen Custard on Sheridan Drive, Buffalo.

The classic servings are vanilla, chocolate or swirl, but they also have other wonderful custards. A “Flavor of the Day” calendar is available on the Anderson’s website and for even more adventurous tasters there are seasonal specialties like “eggnog and rum” and “peppermint stick fudge.” All of their custards have a soft and creamy texture that must be consumed quickly on a hot summer day.

There is no indoor seating so during the summer most people eat the custard in the parking lot or on one of the few picnic benches. If you happen to arrive in Buffalo during one of the notorious blizzards then it is best to visit one of the other locations where they have indoor seating.
