School’s Out!

We will be OPEN on Independence Day, the 4th of July from noon ’til 8 pm, with American classic Strawberry flavor custard.  The first 200 customers on the 4th will receive a small made-in-America flag perfect for waving patriotically with one hand while holding a cone in the other! Remember, we’re closing a bit early so all of us can go see the Capitol firework show! If you’re looking to make it a real party, we also have dense and delicious layered Frozen Custard Cakes available all the time, entirely made and decorated here in the shop. Just shoot us an email to check flavor availability or to reserve a cake and have us write your message on it!

Now that Summer is in full swing, come on down to the shop to beat the heat with some Wisconsin-style Frozen Custard! We’ll have Vanilla and Chocolate flavors every day (except Tuesdays, when we’re closed) as well as a special Flavor of the Day. Click theFlavor Forecast link to see just what’s coming up so you know when the time is ripe for you to pounce! We also have some amazingly refreshing and fruity Sorbets, most of them dairy free for those who can’t handle the cream. Flavors change too fast to mention, so just stop by and taste ’em; they’re all good!

New this year is Pop Culture! We’ll be having a wide assortment of these exotic, made-right-here ice pops available all the time for those that want a break from the Turtle Sundae or small Vanilla cake cone they always get.  Some have dairy, some don’t; some are fruity, some creamy, some flowery, but all are delectable! Right now, as I’m typing (6/29), we have Papaya-Ginger, Blueberry-Sour Cream, Lemon Basil, Cherry-Hibiscus, Strawberries & Cream, Orange Dream, Chocolate-Hazelnut, Rhubarb Fool, and Lime-Agave. Flavors change as they get eaten, so come in soon if you see something you like because the next batch is sure to be something new and different!

In case you didn’t know, we at the Dairy Godmother just love our dogs. It’s too bad we can’t have them in the shop, because if we could they’d be here all the time!  To make up for it we bring home some crunchy whole wheat and barley Squirrel snacks and plenty of frozen Puppy Pops to help them cool off after a hot day of chasing the real squirrels.  Did you know our Puppy Pops are made of yummy yogurt, peanut butter, and fruit? And that many of them are made by students at St. Coletta’s school? AND that some proceeds from Puppy Pop sales go to the PAL organization of therapy animals?  Well, now you do!

Also don’t forget to visit Del Ray for fun-packed First Thursdays and the weekly Del Ray Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings (8am – noon) this summer!
