Frosty Jake's Opens Saturday

Lament no longer, fellow fans of frozen custard!

After many months of teasing us with an “Opening Soon” sign, the new Frosty Jake's at 3102 E. Grant Road opens this weekend.

Will it be worth the wait? All signs are pointing to yes at this point, especially after my education this afternoon regarding the shop’s “concretes,” which apparently include a super-frozen-custard of sorts.

I’ve always known concretes to just be frozen yogurt or custard with candy or cookie chunks mixed in. Not so at Frosty Jake's. Their concretes are actually a way-thicker version of frozen custard with a distinct flavor due to the different egg-to-cream ratio, says Mark Lindley, who is opening the store with brother Eric Lindley and their parents, Lew and Linn Lindley.

Flavors will include raspberry, orange, caramel, pineapple, butterscotch, strawberry, banana, coffee, peach, vanilla and chocolate.

The store opens at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 14.
