Like the Jets and the Giants or the Statue of Liberty, there’s a long debate as to whether New York or New Jersey can claim Kohr’s Frozen Custard as its own. This place started in Coney Island, but that signature orange and vanilla custard swirl was perfected up and down the boardwalks of the Jersey Shore. With locations in Lavalette, Ortley Beach, Seaside Park, and Seaside Heights, it’s one of the best ways to cool down after a long day in the sun.
