Matt and I just returned from a wonderful and relaxing trip in Branson, where we hit up one of our favorite frozen custard stands. But, before we left for our trip, we took a trip down the road in St. Charles/St. Peters to Silky’s Frozen Custard.
Silky’s was one of the places we used to hit up when we worked at Fritz’s and wanted a different change of pace. They have one of my all time favorite concretes: The Elvis Pretzley! Vanilla custard with caramel, chocolate sauce (I think it is hot fudge, not chocolate syrup), and pretzels. If you’ve never tried the sweet + salty combination of pretzels with chocolate, it is an absolute must! So, of course, on this trip, I went for the Elvis Pretzley in concrete form, while Matt decided on the sundae version.
Silky’s claims to have the “world’s smoothest” frozen custard, and I might actually have to agree with them. The plain vanilla is so rich and smooth. This would probably be one of the best places to just get a plain vanilla cone. Seriously amazingly smooth and so SO good!
As a health freak, I also really loved the fact that they had their vanilla custard nutrition facts page POSTED in their window. At 120 calories per half-cup, it’s a little high calorie once you add in toppings, but again, everything in moderation. And Silky’s is well worth the treat!
