Who Remembers This Awesome Ice Cream Stand on Niagara Falls Blvd.?
I grew up in the '90s, although my childhood extended into the early 2000s. So anything from 1995-1998 or so is a little fuzzy, but some things stick with you for a long time -- especially if it has to do with nostalgic ice cream stands that use to be in the northtowns.
I went to Willow Ridge Elementary and when I was in the first grade, our class walked through the neighborhood behind the school and all the way to Niagara Falls Blvd. for an ice cream field trip.
That ice cream place was Custard's Last Stand.
According to some quick research, it was located where the Anderson's Frozen Custard is now on Niagara Falls Blvd. It was next to Ted's Hot Dogs.
Trying to get me as a six-year-old to remember exactly what it looked like or what exact ice cream dishes they served there is a tough ask, but I do recall getting a vanilla and orange whip cone. That was because I saw others getting it and it left quite the impression on me.
Custard's Last Stand seemed to be there in the 80s and 90s before they closed, but the memories lasted with me until now.
What other old ice cream places do you remember? Do you remember going to Custard's Last Stand? I always love looking back on old places that give us massive flashbacks.
While we're at it, I also remember an Old Man River location further up on Niagara Falls Blvd, Was there a ship there? Maybe so, maybe not; that one I need more help on.
