Cheap dates are my favorite. It’s so relieving to have a good time and not have to worry about the budget. So I like to have an arsenal of ideas on the back burner to keep us occupied and connected as a couple.
One of our favorite cheap dates in the summer time is discovering new ice cream places. So while visiting my parents in Ohio, we knew it’d be a great idea to hit up a new place, whits Frozen Custard in Lancaster Ohio.
So yeah, custard isn’t ice cream and ice cream isn’t custard. But the 8 year old kid in us wasn’t the wiser. No, the 8 year old kid in us loved it. To the very last drop.
Custard is smoother and creamier than ice cream. It’s actually a bit warmer too. Still cold, but not brain freeze caliber cold. Just cold enough to savor on a hot day.
We pretty much had the place to ourselves. So we grabbed a table and enjoyed our cheap treats. whits has a nice classic look, but they are also pretty fun. They have a special sundae of the week and flavor features as well as just a nice atmosphere. We were very pleased.
If your local ice cream parlor is in a downtown or shopping area, get it by the scoop or in a milkshake and take a walk together. You might not be able to walk hand in hand until it’s finished, but you can at least feel a little better about the calorie splurge. We like to choose a booth near a window so that we can people watch together while we feast.
Are you a custard fan or a diehard old school ice cream fanatic?
