ABC Wednesday -- B is for Braums, also part 2 of Iconic OKC Eateries

DSC_0014

Braums *is* ice cream in Oklahoma the same way that Double Rainbow *is* ice cream in San Francisco or Blue Bell *is* ice cream in Texas.

I worked at a Braums for about 6 months during my Senior year in high school, where I learned to make the best peppermint soda you'll ever taste.

In addition to their ice cream, they also have a full service burger/hotdog/steak sandwich grill, plus a small store with other dairy, meat, and produce. All of their dairy products are produced from their cows.

Favorite ice cream flavor -- German Chocolate (with pecans and coconut).

Braums started in Emporium, Kansas, but they relocated to Tuttle, OK in 1975. They have 280 stores located in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Missouri and Arkansas.

Ah, I guess each city has it's special ice cream place! Braums is definitely a great, tasty choice for the B day! Wish I had some of their offerings right now! Enjoy!

I love the way you have different ice creams in different states. But everyone loves chocolate, right/

I adore ice-cream but only the vanilla flavour.

What I also enjoy about your post is that style of neon sign - the old style from the '50s. Brings back such memories for which I thank you.

Did you ever go to Fentons in Oakland when you lived in the Bay Area? It's probably been over 40 years since I was last there, but I still remember it.
