ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A St. Louis favorite is back! Ted Drewes on Chippewa has reopened for the season. Hopefully, this means warm weather isn't too far away.

Travis Dillon, the son-in-law of Ted Drewes Jr. who runs the custard stand, says there's a special Valentine's Day blend for Thursday: A scoop of custard, strawberries, "cone coating," and whipped cream. It's sort of a chocolate-covered strawberry, he explains.

Dillon says Ted Drewes is also working on a new flavor -- they usually introduce one each year -- but it's not ready for release, yet.
This isn't just any regular old year for Ted Drewes, by the way. They opened in 1929, meaning this year is their 90th!

Dillon was a guest on the Charlie Brennan Show. Listen to his full interview below:
