Frosties of the Lost Sierra

Last August, my friend Katie and I took three days and ate as much soft-serve and fried food as possible while we toured the Frosties of the Lost Sierra. Frosties are both a dessert and a place to eat dessert–soft-serve, and the classic establishments in northern California that serve it up. We discovered, on our tour, that people don’t love these old-school ice cream stands for the food, but for the nostalgia they invoke.
