ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — It’s going to be a busy day at Ted Drewes, as the frozen custard stands hosts its 90th birthday party Thursday.

Owner Travis Dillon, who is Ted's son-in-law, said people think there's a secret ingredient, but it's just eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and honey.

“It’s just the type of ingredients you use,” Dillon said.

While there might not be one secret ingredient, Dillon confirmed there is a recipe that is kept under lock and key.

A celebration at the Chippewa location is scheduled from 1-5 p.m. Thursday, April 25. 

Johnny Rabbitt will be the master of ceremonies with appearances by Ted and Dotty Drewe, Charlie Brennan, Cardinals announcer John Rooney with Fredbird arriving at 3:30 p.m.
