ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Ted Drewes is the top-rated ice cream in the world. Worldwide marketing and brand building company SoolNua announced St. Louis’ iconic custard shop had taken the top spot in the #WorldIceCreamIndex. More than 20 ice cream shops from 13 countries—from Icecream to Istanbul—participated in the competition. Ted Drewes was not ranked last year.
The St. Louis staple asked for fans to vote this August for help to meet this mark. This is a sweet win for St. Louis, a place where the ice cream cone was first invented.
Ted Drewes has been selling frozen custard for over 80 years. Throughout the years, Ted Drewes Frozen Custard has become a popular treat for St. Louisans and tourists to enjoy after visiting the Arch, the Fox and Muny Theaters, the St. Louis Zoo, or a Cardinal’s baseball game. Along with the delicious hot fudge sundae, Ted’s “concrete” has been the most popular treat at the custard stands.
Ted is very proud of his family business and is known in St. Louis to say, “It really is good, guys… and gals!"
