Yeti’s Frozen Custard Review
Fro-yo girl here. Yeti’s Frozen Custard started out as a food truck in Austin, TX. They later built their wholesale business and recently (as of mid-February 2016) their pints became available nationwide at Sprouts. They plan to open a brick and mortar shop this year.
Yeti’s prides itself in its all natural quality ingredients and creative flavors like Cinnamon Toast and Lemon Lavender. They use local ingredients when possible. The fruits are from Texas. Their frozen custard is hand crafted and and hand packed.
The Sprouts I went to in Monrovia carried three flavors: Mint Chocolate Chip, Roasted Strawberry and Blueberry Pancake. A pint retails for $6.99. During the sale that I encountered, a pint was $3.99. The packaging with the yeti is cute and appealing.
* Blueberry Pancake frozen custard: The texture is denser and chewier than ice cream. The chewiness made it seem odd to me. However, it does taste like it’s made with good milk, cream and sugar. It’s rich and creamy. The blueberries are blended throughout. The blueberry flavor is faint and there is no pancake flavor. They did add maple syrup but that isn’t enough to make it taste like pancakes.
One serving (1/2 a cup) is 230 calories and 15g of fat. Yes, it’s rich.
Ingredients: Milk, cream, sugar, nonfat milk, egg yolk, blueberries, simple syrup, guar gum, carob bean gum, carrageenan, orange juice, orange peel
