Abbott's Frozen Custard is the Cream of the Crop

Article and Photo by Eric H.

Great Plain Ave. in Needham, MA, has brought a very flavorful touch of Rochester, NY, to southwest suburban Boston, with the recent opening of Abbott's Frozen Custard.

Abbott's, with its tasty concept initiated in 1902 and first store established at Ontario Beach in Rochester in 1926, enjoys legendary status in the "Flower City" with its phenomenal frozen custard. Richer and creamier than your typical soft serve ice cream, Abbott's custard also has less air than soft serve and self-proclaimed "special recipes" that clearly place its frozen custard in a class of its own.

The 30 flavors change daily and include chocolate, vanilla, chocolate almond, blueberry, strawberry cheesecake and peach cobbler. I recently sampled the chocolate frozen custard -- absolutely superior to soft serve ice cream!

The proof of Abbott's greatness is in its continuous business expansion, with stores in Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts and New York state. The Needham store is very small, has a outside walk-up window and a small inside where we imagine it will be absolutely packed in the summer!

To slightly twist a few famous Abbott and Costello lines: Hey Abbott's, now we know 'Who's on First" when it comes to great tasting frozen treats!

I tried Abbott's when I was in Rochester about a year-and-a-half ago, and I can't say enough good things about it. It was fresh and flavorful, and I really miss the goodness of frozen custard.
