St. Louis has Ted Drewes frozen custard. Tourists and locals line up at the famous stand to buy dessert.
Does Sheridan’s count as the Kansas City equivalent? The chain is based on College Boulevard, and tonight, as on every hot Friday night, people will line up to buy their concretes, shakes and cones.
Product categories aside, the two establishments don’t have much in common. Ted Drewes is kind of funky. That’s not a word that can be easily applied to the spotless, largely suburban Sheridan’s outlets. Furthermore, Sheridan’s is in ten states while Ted Drewes remains exclusive to St. Louis.
Is Sheridan’s all that? Are Sonic’s malts and Wendy’s Frostys just as good? Is that new gelato place in the City Market worth a trip? I lack a sweet tooth, so I really wouldn't know. (My tubbiness comes from a penchant for grease and beer. )
