The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests' senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store's staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of super-premium ice cream in the onsite creamery and helping patrons select a flavour from a list of more than 50 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company's founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery's signature sweet-cream ice cream. Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer's choice of ice cream and mixins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one customized m?lange. Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers other scream-worthy confections including cakes, shakes, and ice cream cupcakes. Catering is available at many locations.

At Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, the aroma of simmering sugar and butter coils around tidy racks of housemade chocolate morsels. Guests get a behind-the-scenes look at the process, as the Factory’s sugar savants cobble the confections together on site, stirring bubbling caramel in copper pots, and rolling out fudge atop granite slabs. Most of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory’s treats are cocoa-based—layers of creamy chocolate enfold fruits, peanuts, and marshmallows, but the gourmands also dunk juicy apples into vats of caramel, and sprinkle caramel-glazed popcorn with clusters of nuts, proving that corn is more than just a building material for mazes or houses of parliament.

From its humble beginnings in Kankakee, Illinois, in 1938, Dairy Queen has grown from a delicious experiment in soft-serve ice milk to a household name with more than 5,900 restaurants around the world. The shop's signature frozen delights are built upon frosty foundations of creamy chocolate or vanilla soft serve, which swirl idyllically into cones, cups, overturned top hats, sundaes, Peanut Buster parfaits, and the chain's iconic Blizzard treats, blended with crumbled candy and other mix-ins. Ice-cream cakes cleverly conceal surprise fillings of fudge and chocolate crunch between layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, providing sweet, sliceable sustenance for birthday parties and other special occasions.

Yogen Fr?z has an interesting answer for yogurt shops that simply top their swirls with fruit?it mixes mango, bananas, watermelon, and kiwis right in with the yogurt. These colourful, fresh creations boast low or no fat as well as a heaping helping of digestion-friendly probiotics. Of course, customers of the shop?which has more than 1,400 locations in more than 47 countries?can still opt for a traditionally topped cup of yogurt, as well as for smoothies or cups topped with fruit, granola, and yogurt, that have similar nutritional benefits.

Some first dates are so magical they’ll change your life, and this was the case for Danna and Adam Caldwell. The lovebirds had their first date at a frozen-yogurt shop where they discovered a mutual passion for frozen yogurt (and each other). In 2007, the now husband-and-wife duo created Menchie’s. Today, the frozen-yogurt franchise has grown to more than 250 locations around the world, and was ranked the fastest-growing chain in 2010. Each one, adorned with pictures of celebrities enjoying Menchie's treats on their walls, offers an assortment of self-serve yogurt flavours and toppings, which customers can mix into a yogurt cup or waffle bowl. The yogurt is made with fresh milk from Canadian dairy cows; many flavours are nonfat, no sugar added, even vegan.
