My favorite all time, hands down dessert is ice cream, and since my birthday was last week, it was the perfect time for a treat at Cold Stone Creamery! If you've never been, it is a unique fun experience, where your ice cream Creation™ is mixed in front of you on a frozen granite stone! I'm not talking about a hunk of ice cream with some chocolate syrup poured on...We are talking about high quality ingredients, and ice cream that is made fresh, daily in the store, and then it's mixed with whatever your fancy might be from the large choice of toppings: candy bars, fruits, cake, cookies, pie crust and lots more.
My favorite additions have always been strawberries, cake and cream, and for summer, Cold Stone Creamery has some new Summertime Creations™ and one of them just happens to be called "Surrender to Strawberry" which is Strawberry Ice Cream mixed with Yellow Cake, Strawberries and Whipped Topping.
That was my obvious choice, and it was amazing! Of course, sitting outside with my favorite people (aka my family), on a beautiful evening was the icing on the cake.
My two youngest were wide eyed at the number of topping choices available at the sweets counter.
My youngest son, for his first trip here, chose a scrumptious combination of sweet cream ice cream with oreo cookies mixed in, and he thoroughly enjoyed every bite! That's a small, but it looks huge in front of him.
My daughter loved her custom Creation™ with M & M's and chocolate chips!
This chocolate/peanut butter combo was my newly graduated from high school son's choice.
My hubby chose an apple pie concoction, which I of course had to test out, and it was wonderful!
If this makes your mouth water, July 20th is National Ice Cream Day, and Cold Stone is the perfect place to celebrate!
