The best ice cream in Buffalo, NY

The best ice cream in Buffalo NY, handmade at Anderson's Frozen Custard

After attending Ice Cream School (yes, we said ice cream school!) Nels Anderson (Greta & Carl’s son), came back anxious to share all that he learned about creating a premium handcrafted product!  Our team of ice cream experts began making our own brand of ice cream back in 1990!  That team kept true to our founder, Carl Anderson’s dedication to using the finest of ingredients while providing quality. Using time tested family recipes, each batch is hand stirred and then quickly frozen until it is time to ship it out to our locations. Buffalo’s best ice cream is shipped each week to all our locations and to many restaurants and specialty shops in Buffalo.  Did you know that we produce over 100 flavors throughout the year? Some of the most popular flavors include Chocolate Peanut Butter, Watson’s Sponge Candy, White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle and Coffee Bean to name a few! Anderson’s continued high quality products and services have also led to recognition such as Artvoice’s 2015 Best Ice Cream in Buffalo award.

Just like our signature frozen custard, our base ice cream mixes do not contain any growth hormones and no high fructose corn syrup!


Signature Frozen Custard

Famous signature frozen custard at Anderson's Sheridan Drive

Our signature desserts begin with our frozen custard – a recipe originally created by Carl & Greta Anderson that has been handed down through the generations.  This rich and creamy product was first served in 1946 in the Bronx at our first stand!  Our signature frozen custard is rich with egg yolk and fine ingredients!  Originally we prepared “batch style” frozen custard which means it was prepared and stored in buckets and then scooped when ordered.

While many places across the U.S. serve their frozen custard in this style, Anderson’s created their own niche of serving frozen custard.   With his entrepreneurial spirit, Mr. Anderson helped create a way to dispense his signature frozen custard right from a machine onto a cone!  So when you see that it is a machine, don’t be confused – it is not “soft serve”… it is our very own creamy, rich frozen custard.  Whether it’s our smooth vanilla, rich chocolate, a twist or our special flavor of the day – you will not be disappointed!
