Love their concretes. The pineapple and the caramel cashew, but have tried other flavors and found all of them to be great.

Don't miss out on this delectable treat. We bought the frozen custard at the take-out and at it at home. There is now a store in South Jordan and the delicious dessert is there as well.

Stopped by on our way through with our 4 kids and decided to give them a try. We had never tried frozen custard or had a "concrete" but now I can say that I am a convert! I LOVE it! Very smooth and creamy. I had the flavor of the day which was cherry chocolate chip and everyone else had... More

This is one treat I really look forward. When friends or business associates visit, we ditch the fancy restaurants and come here for a bowl of delucious, creamy, frozen custard.

We had frozen custard cones, cups and a mini concrete. All were so delicious and promptly served ! A delicious treat! Just remember no credit/debit cards--bring your cash!

I have been coming here for years. Always get the chocolate almond coconut concrete. It's sooooo delicious. The downside is there is almost no parking and the drive thru takes a long long long time. It's on a busy road so getting in and out is a pain when they are busy. Also you generally have to repeat your order... More

Please note I have a bias as I grew up loving Nielsen's. That being said, I take my kids there on special occasions and they love it too! The custard is yum, and you won't find anything like it around town. My favorite is chocolate custard with mixed in caramel. It is a bit pricy for a treat, but well... More

I'm frankly surprised by all the raves about Nielsen's. I guess it's a local standby, but my experiences here have been much less than exceptional. The custard is good, no question, but the place is run down and the service doesn't impress.

Nielsen's is always the best. As the local Utah folk will testify, we crave our frozen treats, regardless of the season, even in the dead of winter. Go and get more. And again. Then go back later. That's what I do.
