Eat this now: Scooter's Pumpkin Pie Concrete

Each year, we wait with anticipation for Scooter's Pumpkin Pie Concrete—now it's here


Fall is finally here, so ice cream may be the last thing on your mind—but maybe it shouldn't be. Scooter's Frozen Custard (1658 W Belmont Ave) is known for its inventive flavors and desserts (the Milky Way custard and Boston shake, a milkshake with a mini sundae on top, are favorites). The shop is only open until December 5 this year—we guess there isn't much demand for the rich, frigid custard in January—but here's a reason to make another visit before the season ends: Scooter's is serving a special pumpkin pie concrete from October 17 to October 31. 

Last year, we tried the creamy pumpkin custard, which is available on its own, but found it too sweet. So we turned it into a concrete by adding Scooter's buttery graham cracker crust and whipped cream. It made for a much more balanced dessert and totally put us in the mood for Thanksgiving.

Pick up a small for $4.19, or a regular for $5.19.
