“good frozen custard”

Woolley's Frozen Custard
Ranked #748 of 1,602 Restaurants in Fort Worth
Description: Some typical responses are, “Is that the stuff inside donuts?” or “Is it pudding?” But usually the response is, “I have no idea!” Frozen Custard is a gourmet ice cream that first originated on Coney Island, New York, as a carnival treat at the turn of the century. The popularity of frozen custard quickly grew and was the rage of the East Coast. Frozen custard could be found at many East Coast resort areas. Many travelers had a chance to taste the new sensation, and it quickly spread to the Midwest. Milwaukee is currently considered the “Custard Capital of the World.” The popularity of frozen custard is spreading into other regions. To be considered frozen custard, it must contain at least 10% butterfat and 1.4% egg yolk. It is made daily and served at 18 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, there is no air beaten into the mixture during freezing. These details are what make custard different from ice cream. At Woolley’s, Brett and John formulated their own recipe which gives it a unique flavor that cannot be found anywhere else. They only use quality products for the best taste. Woolley’s uses an “old fashioned” style custard machine. The machine continuously feeds custard mix into the barrel. The mix is rapidly frozen, with low overrun and small ice crystals, resulting in a smooth, creamy texture. The product is silky rich with flavor. Woolley’s makes frozen custard several times a day; it is best when eaten fresh. Once you try it, you will know the difference! Also, Woolley’s Frozen Custard is GLUTEN FREE!

I like the peanut butter chocolate the best but there are several flavors to pick from. Small place that is hard to find if you don't know where it is

Located on the North side of Ft. Worth, Woolley's Frozen Custard is a simple place, just a strip mall shop that has a TV going on above a few tables, pictures of customers all over the world while wearing the Wooley's T Shirt, and a counter with Custard behind it. Custard, I've discovered, is the Texas version of ice cream, a little heavier on the cream part, and definitely smooth and savory. Woolley's was started by two grads from the nearby University of North Texas. The Custard is straightforward, and the delight in immense. My wife and I consider our taste in frozen deserts to be on the incredibly picky side, and Woolley's never disappoints us. While not our absolute favorite in the DFW area, it is so good that we will drive 10 or 15 miles out of our way to sample the delicious goodies. Custard, and lots of it, are the only things on the menu.

Needed an ice cream cake and ended up stopping here on a whim. So glad I did. They had a peanut-butter cup pie that was fabulous! A huge hit for the family. We will be going here again.
