Food Fridays: Ollie’s Frozen Custard


By Margaret Maka

As spring weather starts to hit DeKalb, one of the best places to cool down with an icey creamy treat is Ollie’s Frozen Custard.

In case you’re unaware, custard is like the older hotter sister of ice cream – it’s thicker and more delicious. Ollie’s, at 2290 Oakland Dr. in Sycamore, is the hidden gem of the DeKalb area’s frozen dairy places. 

Ollie’s has a ton of delicious flavors including butter pecan, black raspberry, dreamsicle and cake batter. You can get it in a cone or a cup. Infinite options.
