I haven’t spent much time in Clermont, so while traversing the Orlando area, I was delighted to stumble upon Ritter’s. They make their frozen custard fresh daily, and it’s all super creamy, a soft serve consistency. They have franchise locations across the midwest, with several additional locations in places like Florida.
On a particular day you might find eight or so flavors here. They’re willing to combine two flavors in one scoop, which I always love, and it’s very affordable at less than $8 for two, one scoop dishes.
They also have some hot food here, including Nathan’s hot dogs and the like, so if you need some “real” food before your ice cream, you have options.
Here’s what I tried:
Cinnamon – This tastes like it has red hots in it! It’s got a super creamy base and a nice kick.
Vanilla – This is a pretty mild flavor, nice and creamy, but in my opinion it could be a stronger flavor. Too subtle for my taste.
Chocolate – This is a medium, deep cocoa flavor. It’s super creamy, and really nice.
Butter Pecan – I didn’t think this flavor was strong enough to be worth eating, unfortunately.
Turtle – Okay, the name was actually turtle something or other and I didn’t take good notes on it. This was kind of subtle, with nuts and chocolate chips in the mix.
I enjoyed my visit to Ritter’s I always enjoy frozen custard, and it isn’t easy to come by in Florida. Likewise, just finding great ice cream can be a challenge in much of Florida, so Ritter’s is a good option if you don’t have a local ice cream place you love.
And if you liked reading about Ritter’s, you might want to check out my review of Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream or my Tampa ice cream adventure. (Or just flip back as my most recent blogs have been Florida-based.)
Thanks for reading, and happy eating! (And if you are in the market for some holiday tunes, my husband just dropped a new acoustic ukulele album!)
