August 14, 2017 – West Bend, WI – Just three more days left to pick the final flavor of the day at Toucan Custard as the Moehr family prepares to step aside and move onto another stage of their life.
Sisters Jacquelyn Moehr Heise, Rebecca Moehr-Lambrecht and Beth Moehr have agreed to let 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.
Some early suggestions include: That’s A-Moehr-a! (That’s Amore), Rich Schommer said, “Al would order fresh Apple turnovers from me at The Old Fashioned Bakery, make an Apple Turnover custard and send several pints home with me the next day. ” Al’s Apple Turnover Custard.”
Gary Knoeck suggested “S’moehr (s’mores) what a better send off than to use the family name.”
Laurie Kraemer wrote, “Grateful for the MeMoehries: I can’t pick just one favorite , so a mix of favorite flavors!: Butter Brickle (butter/butterscotch custard with toffee pieces) with Caramel swirls, Cashews (and/or pecans) grated chocolate, and to have the “lips on”- cherries on the top.”
In tribute to the restaurant’s 1950’s theme and classic car night Billy Spiropoulos wrote “Cadillac CARmel cashew.”
