If you think ice cream stands around the metro-east only offer classic flavors, think again — and grab a spoon.

From Belleville to Caseyville, local businesses have come up with creative flavors for the spring season.

How does fudgy cake custard sound? That was one of the most popular flavors last year at Bobby’s Frozen Custard. The Maryville shop is known for its creative menu.

“We work with a bakery,” said owner Bobby Kozyak. “He’s always in the lab trying to come up with something new.”

Custard lovers can expect more innovative options this year. (Let’s keep our fingers crossed for something that includes chocolate.) The custard shop opens at 11:30 a.m. Thursday. But if you can’t wait that long, check out this list of places to go for ice cream around the metro-east.
