About Sheridan's Frozen Custard

Sheridan’s Frozen Custard is distinct from ice cream or frozen yogurt. It’s creamier for one thing, but also smoother and thicker, served about 25 degrees warmer than ice cream, custard has a smooth, velvety texture, containing very little air but packed with flavor, and there’s no one better than Sheridan’s Frozen Custard at creating the wonderful confection. That’s why loyal customers keep on returning to Sheridan’s Frozen Custard at all hours of the day and evening. Sheridan’s Frozen Custard uses only the best ingredients in its huge menu of custard, sundaes, and specialty dishes, like Dirt & Worms, vanilla frozen custard with Oreo cookies topped with chocolate sprinkles and gummy worms; or Caramel Pretzel Crunch. Or, consider a simple treat of custard in a cone. Sheridan’s offers more than 50 flavors.
