Conveniently located in the heart of town, Cold Stone Creamery never never fails to have a long queue outside their parlor, especially on a hot sunny day.
Craving for some good quality ice cream that day, I dragged my boyfriend over with me because we are just near Orchard. Not surprised on a sunday, there was indeed a long queue outside Cold Stone and I think the waiting time was roughly 15mins.
15 minutes for a cup of ice-cream? You might be wondering why waste the time.
But that's cos they promise you ice-cream with fresh ingredients included only upon your demand.
Their huge menu on the wall!
The menu they have on the wall. These are the signature creations which saves you the trouble for thinking what ingredients to mix with what ice cream flavour.
The ice-cream making process!
What they did was to put the ball of ice cream onto a cold metal penal, throw in the necessary ingredients to create the ice-cream creations and started mixing them.
So they toss and turn and mix the ice-cream right in front of you!
Strawberry Banana Rendezvous (Small) $5.50
I ordered the Strawberry Banana Rendezvous! What is in it:
Strawberry Ice-cream, Graham Cracker Pie Crust, White chocolate chips, Strawberries and Banana$5.50
Looks a little melted here! But I guess it's because the metal panel isn't entirely zero degrees, so you can't expect the ice cream to not melt at all
But the ice cream was good! The strawberry they used that day was a little sour though. But the strawberry ice cream taste just as right. There was an abundant amount of white chocolate chips in it too! Which explains why the price of this ice-cream is a little expensive, but it's worth the penny!
Chocolate Devotion (Small) $5.50
My boyfriend had the Chocolate Devotion Ice cream.What is in it:
Chocolate ice-cream, chocolate chips, brownie and fudge
Even a chocolate lover like him claims that this ice-cream was very very chocolate-y. With all the brownies and fudge within the chocolate flavoured ice-cream, you can't escape the extreme sweetness! If you don't have a sweet tooth, probably go for something minty, like the mint mint chocolate chocolate chip!
About the ice cream parlor:
There were quite a plenty amount of seats inside Cold Stone creamery. Some were cozy little sofas, which some are wooden chairs along the wall and outside the parlor, inside Central building inside. Even on a busy day, I could still find myself vacant seats around. So probably not a problem! Ambience:
Cold Stone Creamery plays radio music in the background as well, so I guess this is a good place for you to grab a cup of ice-cream for cooling, and rest your tired feet after walking around the town. Eat the ice-cream, and continue shopping after that. Hahaha!
As you can see, there was a long queue outside! Before I got my ice cream, I had to queue ALL THE WAY out of the ice cream parlor. That is how long the queue is you know! But usually if you have a friend or two with you, you probably can had a chat while queuing, and end your day with an ice cream that completes your shopping haul.
Hope you liked my review!
