August 10, 2017 – West Bend, WI – Word is spreading across the community and Washington County that the Moehr family is selling Toucan Custard in West Bend and moving onto another stage of their life.
While the sisters say they would like to slip away in style they have agreed to have neighbors pick the final flavor of the day.
The cherry on top….. they’re asking you to create a name for the flavor as well.
“My husband has his entry,” said Jacquelyn Moehr Heise. “Thanks a bunch crunch.”
The possibilities seem endless as Toucan Custard has developed an extensive history of memories over the last 27 years in the community.
– Al Moehr, the patriarch of the family, was heavily involved in Kiwanis and the annual Duck Derby.
-Al also was creative with some of his menu selections including the taco cheeseburger and fried baloney sandwich.
-Remember the Toucan car?
-When John McGivern visited to do a segment on Toucan Custard for his Around the Corner show he remarked, “Can Al Moehr have an ugly daughter?”
-“He’d always want us to have our lips on,” said Rebecca. “He just thought if you didn’t have lipstick on it made you look tired; lipstick meant you were ready for the day.”
The Moehr girls have always been pretty creative with the custard flavors at Toucan. They’re throwing down a challenge and the deadline for submissions is 6 p.m. Wednesday, August 16.
The selected entry will be served on their last day at the store, Saturday, August 19. New owners take over on Sunday.
Submissions must be submitted to WashingtonCountyInsider.com or Washington County Insider on Facebook.
