Ted Drewes stops by FOX 2

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-Ted Drewes Frozen Custard is the best ice cream shop in the world, according to a new survey. There's a difference between frozen custard and ice cream but apparently the folks at the world ice cream index in Ireland don't seem to mind.

Ted Drewes beat out shops in 13 other countries across the globe to take home the honor!

The contest, which allowed for online voting via Facebook, celebrates the role ice cream plays in defining a destination. Ted Drewes may have earned some votes for its location on Historic Route 66.
