Cold Stone Creamery Review

zaf | Jan 10, 2005 07:18 PM

I must have been out of metaphorical room during the five seconds it took for mixed topping ice cream to become popular. I leave at 4:30 and everyone’s talking about Haagan Daz frozen yoghurt. I come back from the bathroom at 4:35 and suddenly everyone’s nuts over Cold Stone Creamery.

If you are an obsolete 5 minutes behind, the idea is this. You choose your (really high grade, airless, creamy, silky, long-legged…ahem) ice-cream and toppings. A guy with a spoon squishes them together for you on a cold metal counter. You eat it with contented and fashionable burbles of pleasure. None of this archaic scraping the sprinkles off first or scooping chocolate sauce; the trendy elite require their toppings embedded.

Snarkiness aside, it’s pretty tasty. I highly suggest the peppermint ice cream, cake, and sprinkles at Cold Stone in Cleveland Park. You can also find it at Maggie Moos of Adams Morgan- I suggest the brownies and Cinamoo (I couldn’t make this stuff up). Now buy yourself some pre-torn jeans and you’ll be all set.
