The donnie mac's Web site claims the only thing on their menu that is consistently the same is the gourmet ice cream, aka frozen custard. Everything else varies in kind and nature, which results in a mix-and-match of culinary surprises. To describe the delicious consistency of the vanilla-flavored frozen custard using words such as thick and rich just wasn't cutting it, so we coined our own term "floofy" to sum it up. The custard only comes in one flavor, vanilla, and tastes a lot like the old-fashioned, homemade ice cream produced with a hand crank but with lots and lots of butter fat and egg yolk added for good measure. The rapid freezing process makes for tiny ice crystals and less air, resulting in more flavor. All scientific descriptions aside, there's a good reason frozen custard has been a dessert option since the early 1900s, and it can be summed up in one word: Yum, or rather, floofy.
