About


America's Dairyland Loves Frozen Custard!

Based on the 2016 book, Milwaukee Frozen Custard by Kathleen McCann and OnMilwaukee.com's Bobby Tanzilo, this hour-long film will go beyond Milwaukee to explore the history of frozen custard and its origins in Wisconsin.

Plus we'll see what makes frozen custard different (some say better) than ice cream and how Wisconsin earned its capital status. We will visit the state's most popular stands and hidden gems to talk with owners and customers about what makes their place so special.
