Summer, meet frozen custard at Scotties

The Day. May 2015

But they never won me over. I never craved custard, and it never won the battle against ice cream.


But then. I went to Scotties Frozen Custard in Colchester. Oh God.

How had I never heard of this place before?

Taste test: Scotties frozen custard

The Day, Aug 2011


Some days are good days. The newsroom recently helped me conduct a taste test of frozen custard made at Scotties in Colchester last week, and the consensus is this: try the frozen custard at Scotties. 


As it turns out, extra butterfat and egg plus a lower freeze rate makes good ice cream into smooth, rich custard. Or, as arts writer Rick Koster put it after sampling some French Silk custard, "If God was edible velvet, this is what it would taste like."
