Heather: WE’RE HOPING THAT FOOD RALLY ISN’T GETTING RAINED ON RIGHT NOW. BUT WE’RE HAVING FUN IN THE CI STUDIO, BECAUSE IT’S BEEN PART OF CENTRAL ILLINOIS SINCE 1949. THEREFORE, IT MAKES SENSE FROZEN CUSTARD HAS ITS OWN DAY. Tim: TODAY IS THAT DAY. WE’RE CELEBRATING FROZEN CUSTARD DAY WITH THE EXPERT. ASHLEY WITH JARLING’S CUSTARD CUP IN CHAMPAIGN, WHO HAS BROUGHT GOODIES. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. Guest: THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. Tim: HAPPY FROZEN CUSTARD DAY! IT’S LIKE A HOLIDAY FOR YOU PEOPLE! Guest: WE BROUGHT YOU PRESENTS. Heather: WE LOVE IT. Tim: WE DO. Heather: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE CUSTARD CUP. THERE HAS BEEN CHANGES OVER THE YEAR. Guest: A FEW. Heather: IT’S GOT A RICH HISTORY. DANVILLE, THEN, CHAMPAIGN. AND NOW, YOU GUYS — I MEAN YOU’RE OPEN YEAR-ROUND. PEOPLE MAY NOT REALIZE THAT. Guest: THAT IS TRUE. WE’RE OPEN ALL YEAR-ROUND. SO YOU CAN GET YOUR NO NOVELTIES, CAKES, PIE, TREATS FOR THE HOLIDAYS, WHICH HAS BECOME A BIG THING. THAT IS VERY NICE. Tim: YOU’VE GOTTEN RECOGNITION AND WON AWARDS RECENTLY, TOO. Guest: WE HAVE! WE WERE RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE TOP 17 BEST ICE CREAM SHOPS IN AMERICA BY WWW.today.com. Tim: THAT’S A BIG DEAL. Guest: WE JUST WON NUMBER ONE ICE CREAM DESSERT FOR THE NEWS GAZETTE, PEOPLE’S CHOICE. WE APPRECIATE EVERYONE WHO VOTED FOR US. SO, RE, WE ARE GETTING GOOD RECOGNITION. AND I THINK FOR A GOOD REASON. Heather: YES, FAN FAVORITE FOR SURE. Guest: YES. Heather: YOU BROUGHT EXAMPLES OF THE CUSTARD. WHAT SEEMS TO BE THE MOST POPULAR ITEM ON THE MENU? Guest: THE COLD FUDGE SUNDAE. WE’RE KNOWN FOR COLD FUDGE. WE MAKE OUR CUSTARD IN-HOUSE EVERY DAY, MADE FRESH DAILY. THEN, YOU MAKE OUR TOPPINGS IN-HOUSE, THE COLD FUDGE, WHICH I DON’T KNOW WHO ELSE WOULD EVER HAVE THAT OR HAVE THE RECIPE FOR. Heather: I KNOW! Guest: YOU THROW THAT ON TOP, AND YOU’VE GOT QUITE THE UNIQUE SUNDAE. Tim: THIS IS A NAIVE QUESTION, BUT A GENUINE ONE. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CUSTARD AND ICE CREAM IS WHAT? IT’S GENERALLY THE EGG. BUT WE DON’T EVEN HAVE EGG IN OURS. BUT WE STILL HAVE THE SMOOTH, CREAMY, RICHNESS OF CUSTARD. BUT WITH A LOT LESS FAT. SO… Tim: THAT’S GOOD TO KNOW. Heather: HEY, YEAH! [LAUGHTER] Heather: THAT MEANS THIS PIE HERE IS ALSO FAT-FREE. Guest: ALL OF IT, ALL OF IT! Heather: WHAT IS THAT? Guest: THAT IS CALLED THE ILLINI PIE WITH A GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST, CUSTARD, BUTTER FINGER PIECE, CARAMEL, HARD SHELL CHOCOLATE. YOU CUT INTO IT, AND IT DOESN’T LAST. Tim: DO YOU EAT THIS WITH A FORK, SPOON, FINGERS? Guest: OR YOUR FACE. [LAUGHTER] Tim: I’M NOT BEYOND THAT. Heather: OKAY. THIS IS EXCITING. THANK YOU. Heather: YOU CHANGED UP THE FLAVORS. Guest: YES. Heather: YOU HAVE YOUR STABLES LIKE CHOCOLATE AND VANILLA. WHAT ELSE? Guest: VANILLA, CHOCOLATE, LEMON AND STRAWBERRY, EVERY DAY. AND THIS WEEK, FLAVOR EVER THE WEEK IS KEY LIME. THE SPECIAL OF THE WEEK IS THE KEY LIME SNOWSTORM — SORRY, KEY LIME CHEESE CAKE SNOWSTORM. I BROUGHT CHEESE CAKE PIECES TO MAKE A KEY LIME CHEESE CAKE SUNDAE. THE SPECIAL IS WHERE YOU GET IT BLENDED TOGETHER, EVEN IN A BIGGER CUP. Heather: YEAH, NICE. Guest: THAT IS $0.50 OFF THIS WEEK. Tim: LOOKS LIKE YOU PUT THE CUSTARD IN BETWEEN COOKIES AND MAKE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES. ABSOLUTELY. THIS YEAR, WE WILL BE AT MEMORIAL STADIUM. THIS MAY BE SOMETHING WE’RE FEATURING THERE. BUT WE HAVE IT IN THE STORE EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK. YOU BUY FIVE CUSTARD SANDWICHES AND GET ONE FREE, ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. YOU GET VANILLA OR LEMON. AND WE HAVE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES THERE. Heather: WHAT DO YOU THINK TOM HANKS ORDERS? Guest: I DON’T KNOW! I’M SO CURIOUS. Tim: THAT STORY HAS LIVED FOREVER. Guest: MAYBE WE CAN FIGURE IT OUT. LET’S PUT THE WORD OUT AND FIGURE IT OUT. Tim: NEVER BAD HAVING FAMOUS PEOPLE STOPPING BY YOUR PLACE. THAT’S COOL! Guest: EXACTLY. Tim: I HOPE WE CAN TRY SOME OF THIS BEFORE THE SHOW IS OVER. I DON’T KNOW HOW I LASTED FOUR MINUTES THROUGH THIS QUITE FRANKLY. [LAUGHTER] Heather: IT’S NATIONAL FROZEN CUSTARD DAY, SO CELEBRATE TONIGHT FOR DESSERT. OR DINNER. IT’S SUMMER. Tim: ICE CREAM IS ALLOWED.
