Founded in 1983, the first Marble Slab Creamery pioneered the technique of making and mixing ice cream on a frozen slab of stone. The fresh, frozen treats proved immensely popular, and led the company to expand into more than ten countries. Every nation has its own set of flavors and recipes, but the basic technique remains the same: mixing ice cold cream with delicious flavors, including cookie dough, mango, and dark chocolate.
Of course, the ice cream makers provide more ways to enjoy their treats than just in a cone. Customers can also get shakes and ice cream cakes.
