The weather has been a little less awful this month. Actually, knocking on wood, it looks like spring might get its butt into gear soon, so we went to Kopp's. I know its not the first place you would think a "foodie" blog would be talking about. I think its time to make this clear, Eat MKE is not just a foodie run blog. It's a blog run by people in the food industry and sometimes we want ICE CREAM! Or custard in this case.

Kopp's is pretty much the standard of custard in Wisconsin. Sure, other places that have figured out how to make great custard.  I used to work at Oscar's Frozen Custard in high school back more years then I would like to admit. So let me get this  point across to you Eat MKE is not endorsing a Custard War....

Actually on second thought, we are! We're throwing down the gauntlet. This summer we will check out custard around the area and get to the bottom of the question. "who makes the best custard?" Kopp's seemed like a good place to start. THE CUSTARD WAR IS ON! So please let us know who makes your favorite custard in the comments on this blog, on the Facebook page, or by email

Kopp's In Brookfield, stainless steel counters and white paper hats that make the place feel like a 1950's soda stand. The building is built like a Greek temple, perhaps to show off Wisconsin's worship to this high calorie treat. You order your cold items on one side of the room and you order your burgers and fries on the other end. Why? This place gets busy. Summer nights can leave this room packed with customers all trying to get the flavor of the day.

I don't care if your a super "foodie" and you only eat fish that has never been frozen and you buy super expensive balsamic vinegar. If you can't get down with some fresh, made daily custard, we might not be able to hang out.  This stuff is good.

Kopp's Prices don't break the bank, I'd say its price points are the same as Wendy's.  Unlike Wendy's your "frosty" and burger options are limitless. It's actually amazing that fast food restaurants can survive in Wisconsin with local places like this serving better food at the same price. I would say, the next time you are on a fast food run you spend the extra gas to drive past the McRestaurant and head on over to Kopp's. Get your burger and fries and a half gallon of fresh custard. Your family and/or Coworkers will love you for it. Go Eat!
