This was the most surprising of all the ice cream I tried! Like Rita's, I had never been before but I had walked by hundreds of times because it's right by school. When I got there there were a lot of people; always a good sign. The inside didn't have a lot of decoration except for a really cool giant tie-dye tapestry.
They don't make their own custard but that doesn't mean it's not good. The lady gave us a sample and it was so good! It's different than regular ice cream; it's a lot richer and has a bit of an eggy taste. The lady recommended the Italian ice and custard combo, where they layer custard and Italian ice called a "2nd Street". I chose the regular custard and pineapple ice in the kids size. It was only $3 and it was the perfect size! It was so yummy I had to finish the whole thing. I was really surprised and delighted about flavor brigade and I will definitely be back! 10 out of 10 cones.
