If you've never had frozen custard (more eggs than ice cream), run to Abbott's! So smooth and creamy. We tried the coffee, fresh strawberry and vanilla and we'll be back! The single scoop was a generous portion. They also offer a kiddie size and double...More

Sorry not sure of the price, I was fortunate that someone else picked up the tab, but whatever the price it was worth it.
