Sheridan's frozen custard

someone recently lamented NYCE's one-item-per-day policy so today there are two:
.
Home to some of the greatest rock bands ever, Kansas City also birthed Sheridan’s, which has the creamiest, most melty-est frozen custard out there. Just basic choc & vanilla, but they do a mix-in thing called "concretes," using toasted almonds, fresh mangos, real chunks of cheesecake, and so on. There are 13 branches in KC, and a bunch more across the south (TN, OK, NV, NE). So far, the branches in TX have been super-suburban … Watauga, Cedar Hills, and a new one in Frisco. But this summer the chain will snake its way down Preston, first in Plano, then Dallas.

Is melty-est a word? Do we want our frozen custard to be the melty-est?

melty is what happens by the time you get the stuff home. enough already with the suburban locations. we got a big city here and it's called dallas.

TG: I think you were directing that last comment at me since emmmjay obviously knows Lady Ann. I'm don't think I do. I know an Ann Bothwell, but I always thought she was a commoner.

All RIGHT goddammit, I'll listen to esoteric, if you'll just turn that Bothwell crap OFF!

I know Carvel has opened units in some burbs around Dallas, but haven't been to any of them yet. As a one-time New Yorker I have fond memories of their treats and of the late Tom Carvel's commercials. Since your blog has got me worked up about frozen desserts, I did a google and found www.carvel.com. Check it out; lots of fun trivia: Tom knew Jackie Gleason, Bob Hope, Sinatra and Nixon, for example,and Carvel's created the first round ice cream sandwich.
Have you been to a Carvel here and can you give us a report?

Is Sheridan's frozen custard better than Wild About Harry's?

i did a small item on carvel in late april, if one cares to click on the NYCE april archives. i'm an enthusiast, but their ice cream wasn't as good as i remembered. i like sheridan's WAY better than harry's. altho harry's does have a good range of flavors, they use fakey-tasting syrups and the consistency isn't nearly as luscious as sheridan's. sheridan's only has choc & vanilla but their mix-in ingredients are xlent. couldn't you just talk about ice cream all day?

Speaking of ice cream, The Esoteric kind of blows. Well, the vocals anyway, the band itself is quite good.

Hey, how about that Paciugo!

how does twisted link get a pic, such as it is, with his comments? we understand about you; it's your blog after all. can i use a pic of my great aunt, the silent movies star? (Pola is a traditional feminine name in the Negri family; there is at least one in every generation. However, my parents emigrated to Greenland and my dad had a sense of humor.)

thanks for the response. tg. went back and checked your april postings. know how quality often suffers when chains get too big, but going to check out the one on preston. someone close to me has a birthday soon and she used to be wild for their ice cream cakes. be a bit of nostalgia anyway.

can i use donald trump's photograph, with just a litte tinting to the hair?

red ennk, you're fired. Also, Polak, I'm buying Greenland.

Wow, Terese, I can't believe you're drawing such readers! Do you think Mr. Trump would bar me from The Apprentice if I pointed out he used an un-PC term in referring to Ms. Negri. I'm sure it was just a typo, but as the Negris were, I understand, originally from Poland, it's rather misfortunate. Perhaps he needs someone sensitive to these sort of things to check his correspondence before it goes out.

Can Mr. Trump do that? Buy Greenland, I mean. I thought it was a country, three times the size of Texas and a whole lot colder. They make snow ice cream there that would knock your socks off. I mean, I love any kind of snow ice cream, especially maple-flavored, but the snow in Greenland just adds a certain oomph. I think it snows a lot, a really, really lot, there, too. Maybe Mr. Trump could start a snow ice cream chain. Could I get on the Apprentice if I sent him this suggestion, do you think?

I'd be happy to share my snow ice cream recipe. It is THE BEST!

Fire me? Hell, I'm what keeps that Trump chump afloat.

Snow ice cream sounds good, and I'd love to try it, if it doesn't cause waxy yellow buildup. However, a lot of the other stuff in recent postings seems off the target. TG is soooo sweet to give us a place to discuss our innermost yearnings for something frozen at meal's end. We shouldn't abuse this wonderful privilege.

mh mh, 10 Q for your concern, but i welcome any/all comments, even crude contributions from the likes of donald trump. in fact, i'm glad - and maybe a bit flattered, tee-hee! - that NYCE has attracted the attention of a celebrity millionaire. it IS difficult to keep twistedlink on topic but that's always a problem with drug addicts.

I wondered about that needle that he uses with his comment, but I was hesitant to say anything. My friend Dr. Rex Morgan says drug users often have a sweet tooth. Of course, that's not why I read your blog religiously. I just like a little cone now and then. On rare occasions, I might have a sundae.

I won't name names, but at least one frequent contributor to your blog is a recovering alcoholic. You know, they develop a sweet tooth, too.

I've just found your blog about coffeeforless whilst I was looking for more information to add to my blog about coffeeforless. You've got a great blog going here. It's always good to have more information about coffeeforless. I've just started my own blog about coffeeforless if you would like to take a look.
Keep up the good work.
