It's a proven fact that people living in colder climates tend to eat more ice cream than those living in warmer climates. So it's no surprise us Wisconsinites treasure the best kind of frozen treat: frozen custard. Here are the top 10 places to grab a cold treat this winter break.

10. Culver's


Location: Multiple

As you can probably tell, this is the only chain restaurant on the list. Normally, I wouldn't think about including a fast-food restaurant. However, since Wisconsin is the birthplace of this highly popular Butterburger and frozen custard joint, I felt it would be wrong to leave it out. What is special about Culver's (compared to the rest of the list) is that you can customize your own flavor in a concrete. So that means if your little heart desires a chocolate caramel Heath concrete, you can have one any day of the week.

9. Oscar's Frozen Custard


Location: Waukesha, Wis.

Although this doesn't place in the top five, it's still worth checking out. The custard is creamy and placed in homemade waffle cones while the customer service is friendly and warm.

8. Gille's Frozen Custard


Location: Milwaukee, Wis.

Gille's Frozen Custard is extremely special because it is the oldest frozen custard stand in Milwaukee. Opened in 1938, their custard quickly became a hot commodity and soon started selling frozen custard to local grocery stores. Every since 1972, their frozen custard can actually be found throughout grocery stores in the Midwest.

7. Pop's Frozen Custard


Location: Menomonee Falls, Wis.

What's so special about this little-frozen custard stand in this small suburb of Milwaukee? They are famous for their unique puppy chow topping that can be found nowhere else!

6. Out & Out Custard and Sandwiches


Location: Cedarburg, Wis.

Usually, I would praise this restaurant for its amazing Twisted Mac & Cheese or panini, but I think Out and Out is very underrated for its custard. Whether you are a newbie trying it out for the first time or a returning customer, think twice before passing up a scoop of chocolate custard.

5. Northpoint Frozen Custard

Location: Milwaukee, Wis.

What really makes this stand a must-try isn't just the custard but the setting. Located on the lakefront and a stone's throw away from Bradford Beach, this custard stand is a hot spot throughout the summer.

4. Hefner's Frozen Custard

Location: Cedarburg, Wis.

Drive too fast and you might miss this small custard stand in the northern suburbs of Milwaukee. This frozen custard is some of the creamiest and satisfying that I have ever had so I highly recommend stopping by.

3. Robert's Frozen Custard

Location: Germantown, Wis.

Not only does this hidden gem have a drive-thru but awesome flavors like Mint Drumstick and Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. Plus, if you're craving more than ice cream, Robert's jumbo-burgers are the size of your head.

2. Leon's Frozen Custard


Location: Milwaukee, Wis.

Famous for their old-school atmosphere and insanely delicious butter pecan frozen custard, Leon's definitely deserves second place. It's a Milwaukee classic and duly represents the frozen custard capital of the world.

1. Kopp's Frozen Custard

Location: Milwaukee, Wis. and Brookfield, Wis.

With two different locations, two different "flavors of the day" every day, the eye-catching wafer in every scoop, and the best Oreo custard shake ever, Kopp's easily takes first place. If you live in the Milwaukee or Brookfield area and haven't been to the holy grail of custard stands, please go as a Christmas gift to me.

9 Things All Mexican Food Addicts Know All Too Well

Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

In the city I grew up in, there is a Mexican restaurant just about every five miles. They are the after school hangouts and first date go-to's for most of the kids here, especially the high school girls.

I know the servers at my favorite one know my order almost every time I go in there (at least once a week). However, a lot of people apparently get tired of eating Mexican food about twice a week... but I sure don't. If you are a Mexican food addict like me, I am sure you know at least a few of these yourself.

1. Cheese dip tastes like heaven and you have to have it.

That amazing creamy white cheese dip put on a perfectly salted chip is enough to make your day better. Forget the actual food---we'd be content living off of cheese dip and chips for the rest of our lives. Our restaurant trip is not complete without an order of it and if you are lucky enough to get your favorite waiter, maybe even get a large bowl for the night.

2. You never have to look at the menu.



We know when we decide to go what we are having and it is probably the exact same plate we order each time. I am sure the servers laugh after I order some days because there is only three things I rotate between. My burrito is always my go-to, unless I am feeling fancy.

3. Some of the servers know who you are when you walk in the door.

Either by first name or by order they know us. You are the ones that they tell to pick your own seat and already have your drink order placed by the time you sit down.

4. Your boyfriend/ girlfriend puts you on Mexican restaurant restriction on date night.


You drag them there so much, they get tired of eating there. So much so, they flat out say no when you ask to go there on date night. I mean, how does someone get tired of Mexican food to begin with though?

5. You can hum some of the songs that come on.

We may not know what they are saying in the song, but we know the song---trust us. We are in there so much we remember them. Don't ask any questions when we start humming.

6. You "have" a parking spot.

Do not park in my parking spot that is not actually my parking spot, but is my parking spot. Got it? Just do not do it. That starts my meal bad when you take my normal spot.

7. You used to hangout there all the time after school.

It was the hangout spot. Forget the nasty school lunch--- everyone goes to eat Mexican after school. It's the cool thing to do and it started your addiction.

8. You always want to introduce new people to your favorite restaurant.

Oh, you aced that exam? Let's go eat at this amazing Mexican restaurant I love! We always want to find people to go there to eat with so we always introduce new people to it.

9. People always pick on you about your addiction.


Yes, I love Mexican food. Go ahead and tag me in all the memes on Facebook about tacos. As long as I have my Mexican food, I am fine with that.

All in all, we LOVE our Mexican food and our go-to restaurants--- so here is your warning. Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

The 3 Best 21st Birthday Gifts For Your BFF

Cheers to 21 years!

448
views

It's an odd time in your life when half of your friends go out to the bar on Saturday night and the other half sits in and watches movies. Now, depending on your friend, you have three ways that your 21st birthday gift idea can go.

1. For The Chill Friend

Giphy

If you have that one friend who always seems to be the rule follower and doesn't ever really go out and let their hair down, there is only one way to go: Lots Of Liquor. It's finally there chance to go out and get crazy. You, as their honorary bff, have no choice but to go all out and get them a full on basket of individual liquor bottles, bottles of mixers, and goodies to snack on! Another gift you're going to be obligated to throw in, though they may not notice, is that you'll be deemed the responsible one. Switch roles for a night and make sure your friend isn't totally re-tasting what they'd eaten for dinner... you want them to at least last through the pregame.

2. For The Party Friend

Giphy

We've all got the friend who's been breaking rules since they were able to walk. High school came around and you weren't even the least bit surprised that they were pregaming the football games in the parking lot. So, to them, happy 21st just means they can throw away their fake ID and use their real one. If this is the case, it's safe to assume they have all the necessary alcohol they want and they also already know what they like. The best gift to a party happy friend is a nice recovery basket for the next day. This should be stuffed with all the necessities, Advil, Pedialyte, and other the other day after must-haves.

3. For The Normal Friend

Giphy

All of our friends are not going to be crazy, out-of-hand rule breakers or goody-too-shoes. Sometimes you're going to have a friend who plays by the rules... most of the time. If this is the case, there is only one way to go: a little bit of both. You could probably be safe with a cute hand painted wine glass and a bottle of their favorite, but where is the fun in that? They know enough about alcohol to assume they will surely need that hangover kit the next day, but not enough to have it stocked and ready to party on their big day.
