Seeing the bright neon signs of the Sheridan’s Frozen Custard shop on our way to dinner guaranteed that we would be leaving room for dessert on the way back to the hotel. Located in a strip mall parking lot, this walk up/drive through custard shop serves up fresh frozen custard all day. There aren’t too many frozen custard places in the Pacific Northwest. FYI, frozen custard is like ice cream but with a higher ratio of egg yolks. At Sheridan’s, we always buy their concretes. What the heck is a concrete you ask? Think Dairy Queen Blizzard but, instead of wimpy ice milk, substitute a thick frozen custard. Yum! Most of us had to try the latest concrete specials. We aren’t in Vancouver, WA often, so chances are the next time we’re in town those particular special flavours won’t be available.
We covered both concrete specials (Red Velvet Crush and the Chocolate Kiss) plus a Grant’s Grasshopper concrete for good measure and then hopped into the car to enjoy them because it was too cold outside! Each concrete was blended so that you could still taste each item in the concrete yet enjoy the combined flavours as well. For example, while you could imagine it would be easy to obliterate it when blending, the texture of the cake in the Red Velvet Crush was still there in chunks. The chocolate in the Chocolate kiss was intense. Be sure you are a chocolate lover when you try an one of their chocolate concretes! The grasshopper concrete was what you would expect. Thick and minty with texture from the oreos and the chocolate chips.
Warning: the concretes are rich and filling. On previous visits we have purchased large sized (16 oz) concretes each in the “Go big or Go home” mentality but would end up struggling to finish because of the richness (especially immediately after a dinner). This time we went with regular sizes (12 oz) and were still feeling quite uncomfortable (this time again after a large meal). Next time if it is a post meal dessert, mini concretes for everyone!
