ST. LOUIS – Ted Drewes frozen custard cups — recognized as a St. Louis institution — have now landed at the local airport.
The treats can now be found minutes from airline gates at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. Three new chilled vending machines dispensing Ted Drewes frozen custard have been installed in each of Lambert’s concourses.
“Ted Drewes has a fanatical following here and we’re excited to be able to offer a unique taste of St. Louis in the Airport for our millions of visitors who might not otherwise get a chance to visit the South St. Louis custard stands,” said Lambert Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge.
The machines deliver Ted Drewes’ famous “concrete” style custard, which Chris Beckemeier, Ted Drewes operations manager, explains is “a shake so thick you can turn it upside down.” Beckemeier says the move to offer frozen custard through a vending machine is a first for the family-owned company, which traditionally offers its products at its two popular South City stores and some grocery store locations.
Ted Drewes is offering its six top selling “concrete” flavors in 8-oz. cups: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, Oreo cookie, Heath Bar and chocolate chip.
