I’ve heard about Goodberry’s for a while from a dessert-lover (hehe), so I decided to stop by one day for a treat. They have three flavors each day: vanilla, chocolate, and a flavor of the day (ok, technically four if you count sugar-free vanilla).
Some background about frozen custard – it’s a little different from ice cream in that it’s made with eggs in addition to cream and sugar. It has less air than ice cream, so the overall texture is thick & creamy, and should be more smooth and soft in comparison with ice cream. It is served at a high temperature (-8 degrees C) than ice cream (-12 degrees C), which also contributes to the softer texture. (For more information on frozen custard, you can read the Wikipedia entry.)
Anyway, Goodberry’s does a pretty good job with the soft and smooth consistency – I could definitely taste the difference. Also, they actually blend in the toppings you want into the custard (they call it the ‘Carolina Concrete’), so you can get a pretty good mixture. I really enjoyed that.
Pictured below was my mini chocolate-hazelnut custard. It was delicious, and I’m very sad that the weather is getting colder – less frozen treats. It’s rather unfortunate that they do not provide indoor seating, because I can’t imagine business being good in the winter time…
Price: $3.50 for a mini with one topping
