The texture of your hair and what you’re trying to accomplish are the main variables in answering this question. The gel will have more “hold” and be chunkier and clumpier. The custard will have more definition and be "piecier". If you are trying to control frizz, you will need to play with the appropriate amount of product to use to get the effect you’d like. If you are having mid-day frizz without an increased activity level causing it, you may need to use more product. Also, WAIT until the product is 70-80% dry before scrunching.
So, in a nutshell:
chunky clumpy curls = Medium Hold Gel
definition and added moisture = Curly Hair Custard
