The Turkey Cometh

Autumn has fallen, and the change of season means many things here at the Dairy Godmother. We’ll still have our usual Vanilla and Chocolate Wisconsin-style Frozen Custard every day (except Tuesdays, when we’re closed), but the special Flavors of the Day are more nuanced than the Summer ones.

Custard Pie

Pumpkin Custard Pie with Pepitas

With the start of November we’re all reminded that Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and as many of you know that means extra-special fancy treats!  On the week of Thanksgiving (21st-24th) we will be open noon-9 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and from 9-noon Thursday. Available on a first come, first served basis that week will be Mozambique, Sweet Potato-Pecan, and Pumpkin custards and Cranberry, Pear Vanilla, and Apple Cider sorbets in pint and quart sizes, as well as Pumpkin Moon Pies, Ice Pops, boxes of Truffles or Marshmallows, and more Pumpkin on Ginger sandwiches. Again this year we are also offering several types of delights for pre-order; just come down to the shop or call and we’ll put you on the list for pick-up between the 21st and the 24th. Custard Pies come in Pumpkin or Sweet Potato-Pecan flavors in a ginger snap crust.  Pilgrim Cakes have vanilla custard and cranberry sorbet between layers of spice cake. Boxes of Chocolate-Dipped Gelato and Sorbet Truffles or assorted Marshmallows are great for lighter desserts, and Pumpkin on Ginger custard sandwiches are a big hit, too!

All sorts of cookies are available in the shop every day, like Marshmallows, Oaties, Ginger-Molasses cookies, Macaroons, Buttered Pecans, and the old standby Chocolate Chip!  Be on the lookout for even fancier treats like Pumpkin Moon Pies or Hazelnut Shortbreads, since they go fast when we make them! We also have some of the more delicate Sorbets this time of year when the shop is less crowded. As of October 31st we have Pear Vanilla, Blackberry Merlot, Apple Cider, and Lemon Lavender, and Rose Hip – Hibiscus.

One of the more subtle changes this year is to the Website itself. Our tech-savvy webmaster Alex has been hard at work making the site more smartphone friendly, so get out there and give it a try! Look for us on Facebook and Twitter, too; there are plenty of ways to find that flavor!

Even though the sun’s not so hot, we still have a wide assortment of our Pop Culture! exotic, made-right-here ice pops available. Right now (10/31) we have Tangerine, Rum Raisin, Caramel Apple, Pomegranate, Cranberry Relish, and a Peanut Butter and Jelly pop made with local Concord Grapes! Also, Frozen Custard Cakes are still available all the time for special occasions! We usually have some around for Walk-Ins, but if you’re planning ahead for a cakey event, you can shoot us an email to reserve a cake and have us write your message on it!

We will be CLOSED on Friday the 25th of November, likely at home napping and eating turkey sandwiches. Spend some time with your folks and we’ll see you on Saturday!
