Uncle Mike’s Bake Shoppe
Enjoy Wisconsin's Award Winning Bakery, right here in Greater Green Bay. Whether you're looking for fresh donuts, custom cakes, breads and buns, cheesecake, kringles or coffee cakes and pies, Uncle Mike’s Bake Shoppe has you covered. On any given day they will have samples of their various kringles out for you to taste.
What’s a kringle you ask? A kringle is a danish pastry made from laminated dough. Each kringle has 36 layers of dough and butter forming a buttery flaky dough. Kringles are filled with a filling and formed into the traditional pretzel shape. Uncle Mike’s make a cheater pretzel so none of the dough overlaps. Once you go kringle, there’s no turning back!
Zesty’s Frozen Custard
Any frozen custard lovers out there? I know I am. Zesty’s Frozen Custard is a Greater Green Bay favorite. Before describing Zesty’s, it’s important for you to know exactly what custard is. And no, it’s not “just ice cream.” Adding some egg yolk and containing a higher percentage of butter distinguishes frozen custard from ice cream with its thick, creamy texture. Frozen custard is flash-frozen to minimalize air bubbles giving it a denser consistency.
Anything you can do with ice cream, you can do better with custard. Zesty’s custard is great in a milkshake, scrambles (Zesty’s version of a Blizzard) or just by itself. If you’ve never had a Banana Split or Hot Fudge Sundae made with custard, you have got to try it! Custard is served either vanilla or chocolate or better yet, try the flavor-of-the-day!
