Frozen custard as a dessert first saw commercial success in Coney Island, New York, in 1919, when ice cream vendors Archie and Elton Kohr found that adding egg yolks to ice cream created a smoother texture and helped the ice cream stay cold longer.

In their first weekend on the boardwalk, they sold 18,460 cones, according to the article “Happy Days” by The Village Voice writer Robert Sietsema.
