They only offer a couple flavors at a time, along with having chocolate & vanilla all the time. However, though some of the flavors may not sound delicious for an ice cream flavor, they’re absolutely yummy! In fact, my son & I absolutely love their...More

It is always CHILLING to stop for a cone on a hot day and it doesn't get much better than this Strickland's. Especially when you are trying to navigate the Montrose madness. Stop, get a cone, and watch the rest of the madness go by...More

They provide 4 fresh flavors. Vanilla and chocolate are always two, then they mix in two others. You can see their menu online if you are looking for a particular flavor. They do have some frozen containers in the freezer, but not a broad selection....More

I'll take frozen custard over ice cream any day and Strickland's is one of the best. Whether it's a sundae or a cone, your taste buds will thank you. If you happen to be there when they have Butterfinger, try it, it's fantastic!

Stricklands(R) Frozen Custard was founded in 1936 by Bill and Florence Strickland. During his years as an Akron Pure Milk employee, Bill developed his own rich recipe of cream, eggs, sugar and other ingredients. With his formula perfected, Bill turned his attention to developing an ice cream machine (called a "batch freezer") that would quickly freeze the ice cream, while limiting the air whipped into the product. The result is Stricklands' award-winning ice cream. Bill and Florence built the first Stricklands Frozen Custard stand on Triplett Avenue in Akron, Ohio, and the Stricklands' legend was born. The original ice cream store is still in operation today (and so are the original batch freezers!), Run by the third generation of the Strickland family, and serving the same fantastic ice cream and frozen custard that made Stricklands a local landmark.
