Cool off this weekend with these curbside frozen treats and sundae kits

Each week on Radio Milwaukee, Milwaukee Magazine dining critic Ann Christenson and 88Nine’s resident foodie Tarik Moody discuss Milwaukee’s culinary and restaurant culture on This Bites.

This week, it’s Memorial Day weekend and we’ve got some things to talk about related to the holiday. Ann has a great list of where to get some frozen custard, ice cream and gelato. We also have some information about SapSap, which is coming to Milwaukee one day only for a special floating market, and about Sanford’s new curbside pickup offerings (they’re offering some dishes they’ve never had before, and their selection has really evolved over the last two months). Additionally, we share some great news about a relatively new kosher grocery store. Hear us discuss all that and more — including our cookbook of the week picks — below.

Georgie Porgie’s sundae kits |

Looking for some refreshing frozen treats? Oak Creek is the home of a little grill called Georgie Porgie’s, and it offers some incredible sundaes. The spot also has a treehouse theme, so if you go inside it looks like a treehouse. They’re offering build your own sundae packs that come with whipped cream and toppings. They also have unusual flavors like maple and bacon.

Scratch Ice Cream has a location that’s in Crossroads Collective, and they’re making it real easy to get their pints to go. Just order from their website. They also deliver. They offer pints of vegan ice cream, and they have an incredible salted caramel waffle cone. They’re also offering ice cream sandwich kits.

If you’re a frozen custard fan, there’s a place in Delafield called Wholly Cow that’s worth checking out. Like most custard places, they offer chocolate and vanilla every day, but they have a custom flavor that you can design on the spot. Sure, it’s a drive, “but I think this Memorial Day weekend a slow, leisurely drive might be a fun thing to do to pass the time,” Ann says.

SapSap returns to Milwaukee

SapSap fried chicken sandwiches |

SapSap is a company that does Laotian popups in Racine. It was briefly in Crossroads Collective, but it’ll be back in Milwaukee for one day only on Sunday, May 24. The menu includes a fried chicken banh mi, ginger and chicken rice congee, and chicken and potato eggrolls with a cucumber sauce. You can find the complete menu here.
