As someone who spent Fat Tuesday 2012 on a Frozen Yogurt Tasting Crusade, I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur in the field of frozen treats. So when I found myself in Acworth waiting on a lacrosse game and drove past LoriBell’s, I was thinking to myself, ‘Oh look, another frozen yogurt shop.’ Wrong.

LoriBell’s is frozen custard! What’s the difference you might wonder? While frozen yogurt is a dairy product made with live cultures, custard is an egg-based product. According to LoriBell’s: Custard is to ice cream what cream is to milk. Which results in a very creamy, pudding-like texture.

Now, if you are from the Midwest or Up North you most definitely have experienced custard. If not, I urge you to try it.

LoriBell’s Frozen Custard Creations, named after the owner’s mother, is set up like many of the mainstream yogurt shops are, with a variety of flavors and an enticing display of toppings. But the custard is so delicious on its own, you barely even need to top it.

Now, custard is higher in calories than the frozen yogurts, so you do have to watch how high you fill up your cup, but because of the richness, you really need less for the same satisfaction. But consider this a friendly Scoop warning!

If you think you have what it takes to down about 60 or more ounces of the yummy frozen custard, be sure to try the LoriBell’s eating challenge. The record for the store was an astronomical 101 ounce consumption — but after careful consideration, the owners felt is was best to cap it at 60.

So if you are like me and have a husband who refuses to eat “girly” yogurt and insists on driving all over to find soft serve custard, you really need to give LoriBell’s a try. And tell them Scoop sent you.
