Sunday’s Sound-off article asked if custard was overrated and, according to the majority of Talkbackers, it’s not. In fact, people wrote in declaring their love for very specific custard flavors, including Kopp’s grasshopper fudge.
I remember the first time I went to Kopp’s on Port Washington Road, back when it was adorned with plants and an indoor waterfall. I got a dish of cookies ‘n’ cream and I was instantly smitten. Today, my personal favorite custard flavor is the hyper decadent caramel cashew, but I have high expectations for Kopp’s red velvet cake custard that’s featured again on Wednesday, Aug. 19.
And it's not just Kopp's that dispensing the good stuff. Bella's and Leon's get a shout out, too, along with many other neighborhood custard stands. As a kid, Pig 'N' Whistle on Capitol Drive was another top custard spot for me and my Shorewood-based family.
What are your favorite custard flavors? Tiramisu? Mint chip? Straight up vanilla? Might I see you later in line at Kopp’s or Bella’s? Thought so.
