ALEXANDRIA, Va. — I have been hearing about the Dairy Godmother in Alexandria’s Del Ray neighborhood for years. I finally got there recently with my family. The Dairy Godmother serves frozen custard, Wisconsin-style though I thought the term was “Milwaukee-style” specifically. Nevertheless, I’m sure if I had called it soft-serve, I would have offended them because they spend several paragraphs on their Web site detailing what exactly Wisconsin-style frozen custard is compared to other kinds of frozen desserts.
The verdict — that is some tasty frozen custard. Mine was quickly and joyfully devoured. My wife enjoyed her mango sorbet. Perhaps the most discerning of palates, our 2 year old, also enjoyed his chocolate custard but did not finish it.
