In spite the fact that Austin has once again been thrown into Winter weather the past 4 days, hubby thought it would be nice to have ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery earlier this evening. He so desperately wanted to get rid of the taste left by the “falafel” he had for dinner (more about this on a separate entry), and that makes two of us.
Cold Stone boasts of highest quality ingredients and ice cream that is made fresh in-store everyday. One can customize a creation by first choosing from a wide array of unique ice cream flavors and then choosing 1 mix-in, which includes nuts, chocolate chips, gummy bears, crushed cookies, and almost every possible mix-in possible. After the choices have been made, the ice cream and mix-in of choice are prepared and mixed together on a frozen granite stone, a Cold Stone signature process. Of course, CSC also has a variety of delightfully sinful special creations to choose from. Those on “health watch” need not fret. CSC has sorbets, light and fat-free ice cream flavors available. CSC also has shakes and smoothies on their menu board as well as ready and custom made ice cream cakes.
Guess whose creation this is! :D This is Abby’s. It’s a flavor only a kid like her would love. Hahaha! Yes, it is creamy but a little too sour for me. Hubby swears he can taste a hint of jello. Abby finished her ice cream save for a few pieces of gummy bears.
Hubby’s creation is a Ghirardelli chocolate (being offered for a limited time only) and cookie dough combo….a very rich indulgence indeed!
As for me, my personal creation was a combination of cake batter ice cream and white chocolate chips. It did taste like cake batter, which may not appeal to a lot of people. Who eats unbaked cake anyway? Hee hee hee! But it’s a flavor that grows on you. Promise! ;)
After every last drop of ice cream has been spooned, and before making a quick dash to the car, Abby just had to do this for the camera…
…green-tongued and proud. :D
Have a great weekend, y’all! ;)
