The fact that we landed up here was a completely random occurrence. My son and I had just finished getting ready for the day. Every Friday, we make it a point to take the kids to Dairy Queen and the adults to Chik Fil A. It was Friday and time to eat!
Instead of eating ice cream from Dairy Queen, my aunt suggested we go to Cold Stone Brewery, which had been recommended by a cousin of ours. Sure, I said. I don’t eat ice cream very often, but it’s always interesting to try something new.
Before visiting new destinations, I like to be well-prepared. On the way, I looked up their menu online to see what they had. I explored their signature creations. I couldn’t decide between their “Chocolate Devotion” (chocolate ice cream, chocolate chips, brownie, and fudge) and “Surrender to Strawberry” (strawberry ice cream, yellow cake, strawberries, and whipped topping). I eventually decided on strawberry ice cream because I could get the waffle cone dipped in chocolate, giving me both chocolate and strawberry!
According to their website, which is referenced at the bottom of the page, Cold Stone Creamery has been serving up the tastiest, freshest ice cream, cakes, smoothies, and shakes for more than 30 years, utilizing only the highest quality ingredients and, of course, their trademark process of creating your custom ice cream creation on a frozen granite stone.
We entered a long line. Of course, on a hot summer Friday, it’s long. There were at least ten people in line ahead of us. I only saw three staff (one out of the three wore a mask), yet everyone was patient as they worked rapidly to serve everyone. I’d estimate it took us between 10 – 20 minutes to get to the counter and place our orders.
We each got a small ice cream scoop. Mya chose a plain cotton candy ice cream with sprinkles. Ava placed an order for the Cake Batter Batter Batter (cake batter ice cream, cookie dough, and brownie). I placed my order for strawberry ice cream.
A small size ice cream costs $4.59, a medium costs $4.99, and a large costs $5.69.
I thought it was really cool that you could take their ice cream home in small tubs.
Thank you for the recommendation, Ashley! It was incredible.
I’m not a big fan of ice cream. I almost never finish my ice cream, but this was an exception. I ate EVERYTHING.
