The buildings below are examples of Tastee-Freez's glazed, blue brick design. The buildings had red and white stripes in front and distinctive diamond shaped signs.

former Tastee-Freez
Weedsport, NY
This former Tastee-Freez was supposedly built in the mid-1950s. However, I believe it is really from the 1960s. It now houses DB's Drive-in. The building's original plastic diamond pattern around the roof was gone by 2018. The blue glazed brick is still there. [map]

former Tastee-Freez
Twin Lakes, WI
This former Tastee-Freez in Knightstown was built in 1967. By the 1970s, it was known as Tastee Cream. I don't know when it became Frosty Boy K. Evidently, this stand is or was connected with the Pizza King and Frosty Boy chains. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. [map]

This former Tastee-Freez in Twin Lakes was built in 1965. It later operated as the Straw Hat. This photo is from 2011. In 2012, the business became Tom's Straw Hat. The sign and building remain the same. [map]

This Tastee-Freez in Wickenburg appears to be new or remodeled. This sign with the Tee and Eff characters was probably a replacement panel. Those panels had been replaced by 2021 with signs reading "Tasty". [map]

former Tastee-Freez
Hickory Hills, IL
former Tastee-Freez

This former Tastee-Freez in Hickory Hills featured two, identical neon signs in the window. I have never seen them before and don't know how old they are. In 2015, this location closed and was put up for sale. By 2016, the building was housing the Chill N Grill Spot. Some of the diamond-shaped signs on the building were still there. The Tastee-Freez window sign was still there. By 2018, the building was housing the Aladdin's House, Indian-American Grill. The building now houses the Falafel House. The neon sign and diamond-shaped signs are gone. [map]

former Tastee-Freez
East Lansing, MI
This former Tastee-Freez has operated as Tasty Treat since 2011. Tasty Twist operated here from 1960-2011. The building and diamond-shaped signs show this was originally a Tastee-Freez. The angled roof and walk-up window seem to indicate that this was an earlier Tastee-Freez that was updated with the plastic signs later on. The building has been vacant since at least 2015. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

former Tastee-Freez [gone]

This former Tastee-Freez opened in 1967 and this sign was probably from then. The stand had been vacant since at least 2006. In 2010, the building was remodeled and reopened. By 2012, the stand was closed and the sign was gone. As far as I know, this was the only sign of its kind still on display. This location had reopened by 2014. By 2017, the building was housing Bruno's Cheesesteaks. [map]
