I’ve always been a huge Cold Stone Creamery fan. I mean really, who isn’t? There’s ice cream, and then there’s Cold Stone. Yummmm.
I was so excited to have an excuse to go there. My husband & youngest son went on vacation for a long weekend, which gave me the perfect opportunity to take my oldest on a mommy/son Cold Stone date. I admit I went with the cake batter. I wanted to be more daring, but I just couldn’t pass it up! It’s SOOOO good, and so unique to Cold Stone. I mixed in some Heath bar, which was the perfect combination. Yumminess in my mouth. My son got the strawberry with no mix-ins, which he was very ecstatic over. He didn’t even leave a drop. The service was fantastic, the place was clean, and overall we had a great “date”. It’s the perfect place to bring anyone you’re looking to spend a little time with!
My family LOVES Cold Stone Creamery. This is one of my husband’s favorite places to go, so naturally he was really excited about getting a gift card so we could try something new! My husband usually gets just the Vanilla mixed in with cookie dough or Oreo’s but tonight he decided to try one of their shakes and he wasn’t sorry he did. He loved the Oreo Shake and I couldn’t get enough of it either. One thing I really love is that I am lactose intolerant and can’t have a ton of Ice Cream BUT they have other choices like their yummy Sorbet and that’s what I decided to get. I loved the Raspberry Sorbet mixed with Chocolate Chips it was super super yummy! My daughter loves anything having to do with Ice Cream and she had the Blue Cotton Candy Ice Cream mixed with Gummy Bears and she was in absolute Heaven and a sugar coma for the rest of the day! I love the service every time we go in there. They are always very patient and are willing to let you try any flavor that you want until you find that perfect one. Cold Stone is a great place to take your family for a fun family night or a date night!
When we are in the mood for some delicious ice cream, Cold Stone is usually the place we turn to. They have so many yummy flavors and mix-ins to choose from. I am a really big Cheesecake ice cream with strawberries and cake batter with brownies fan. My hubby loves the Coffee ice cream with Heath Bar as the mix in. This time I decided to get a cake and bring it come to my family as a surprise. I chose the Cookie Dough Delirium Signature Cake since my little guy is a huge cookie dough fan. It is: “Moist yellow cake, sweet cream ice cream with cookie dough & chocolate shavings covered in fluffy, white frosting.” It was a huge hit, and was gobbled up fast! I highly recommend Cold Stone Creamery ice cream cakes for any special occasion!
When I want good Ice Cream, Cold Stone is my number one choice. If I am going to spend money on it, I want it to be for variety’s that I can’t just buy at the grocery store. Cold Stone definitely has those unique flavors that I am looking for. Three of my all time favorites are: Oatmeal Cookie Batter, Cake Batter, & Peanut Butter. In fact, I have never been to Cold Stone without getting one of those 3 flavors. I have a really difficult time passing up that Oatmeal Cookie Batter so that is what I chose to use my gift card on. It’s delicious alone, but I had to add my favorite mix-ins to it so I added Graham Cracker crust & brownies. It seriously doesn’t get better than that. My girls were happy to have their usual as well. They chose Bubblegum ice cream with….BUBBLEGUM (go figure)! The employees at Cold Stone were super friendly (as always) and didn’t give me dirty looks when my kids asked to sample a few flavors :). It’s always nice to go somewhere that is kid-friendly. It was a fantastic night out with my family & GREAT ice cream. I will never get tired of Cold Stone & even though it is quite the drive from my house, it is always worth it!!!
I love ice cream. I think that it is one of the best treats ever created. I love Cold Stone Creamery. I am one of those boring people though. I do not create my own ice cream. All the choices are too overwhelming for me. I normally pick one of their fabulous ‘signature creations’ and have one of those. On my most resent trip to Cold Stone, I got the Cheesecake Fantasy signature creation and my sister got the pink lemonade sorbet mix with raspberries. Both of our ice creams were delicious. My sister and I were very impressed with the service at our Cold Stone Creamery. When we walked in, there was a very long line. We were expecting that we were probably going to be waiting awhile. To our surprise, we were served quickly and were enjoying our ice cream in a matter of minutes. The service staff was also very friendly even though they were busy. We were impressed. I love Cold Stone Creamery and will continue to go often!
