Cold Stone Creamery’s ice cream, which is made fresh in stores every day, inhabits a quantum flux between soft-serve and traditional ice cream, with a rich, creamy texture that whispers tales of its superpremium quality as it glides over taste buds. Dozens of silky flavors vie for the title of favorite, such as cake batter or butter pecan ($4.25–$5 for ice cream only), with each serving generously welcoming myriad mix-in toppings as traditional as crumbled brownies and strawberries or as quirky as funnel cake and churros ($4.75–$5.50 for ice cream with one mix-in; $0.69 for each additional mix-in).The Frankencream is prepared cold on a marble-slab grill before being scooped lovingly into a freshly made waffle cone or bowl.
Alternatively, countless cakes wait to invigorate any party, special occasion, or weeknight with moist cake lathered in creamy ice cream and mix-ins and topped with velvety frosting or rich fudge ganache. The small, round Cake Batter Confetti cake garnishes red-velvet cake with playful rainbow sprinkles ($25/6,” serves eight), and the small Cookies & Creamery cake combines Oreo cookies with devil’s food cake ($25/6,” serves eight), a tastier combination of classics than breading and frying your DVD copy of Independence Day. For larger parties, Cold Stone Creamery also offers ice-cream catering, with services for as many as 20 partiers or 5 children who have just run a marathon.
