Weber's Fresh Ice Cream and Custard
What we got
DomLet's be honest, I dragged Cheryl out there for one specific reason: Weber's has banana frozen custard. I haven't encountered an ice cream store with banana since my dad had one in Medina over 10 years ago. I knew what I wanted as soon as I walked in the door. Just like at Jeni's, I couldn't pass up anything strawberry. I packed the banana and strawberry frozen custards into a large waffle cone. The waffle cone was not baked all the way, making it a little doughy, which was phenomenal. As much as I wanted to resist, I had to buy some banana to bring home. Thankfully, my mom saw the word "banana" on the lid and said "gross."
CherylI learned the best thing you can say when walking into a place like Weber's is this:
We've never been here before.The incredibly friendly employees gave us sample after sample of frozen custard and yogurt to help us make our decision. I didn't even pay attention to the menu because I knew I was sampling the best stuff they had. I got a waffle cone with two classic flavors that longtime Clevelanders would love: the original Euclid Beach vanilla and the authentic Higbee's frosted malt. The frosted malt was coming out of the machine while we were there, so I got it fresh from the machine into my cone. Fresh ice cream is incredible - though it makes for slightly messy eating. Thank goodness their cones come with a plastic holder that I used as a bowl when my cone became too messy to eat with my hands. I got a container of frosted malt to take home because I knew it would be a while before I found a flavor like that again. Don't worry, East Siders: Weber's has paper freezer bags to put your ice cream in for a long trip (though you might want to bring a cooler if it's a really hot day or a fairly long drive). I'll definitely be back.
