What you’re getting: Slushicle
Fred’s doesn’t quite abide by the same custard rules as most everyone else, since it makes its custard in a soft-serve machine. One thing that’s great for, though, is making drinks. For something really refreshing, try the slushicle, a slushie blended with vanilla custard. It’s extra light with just the right amount of sour pucker from the slushie syrup. Get a rainbow one that has all the flavors together if you dare.
