I’d never been to Cold Stone Creamery before, even though I deeply love ice cream, because there isn’t one nearby. There is one two towns south, near where my kids go to school, and with the gorgeous weather this weekend, we made our first stop at Cold Stone Creamery after an afternoon of practicing baseball and softball. My kids were happy to go for ice cream, but when I pointed out that they get to pick out a candy to mix in, they nearly fainted. While everything at Cold Stone was new to us, there is something new to everyone: frozen yogurt creations. It’s a really wise move because I can treat my kids to ice cream, but instead of feeling guilty about indulging (because there is no way I’m getting Cold Stone Creamery ice cream without a mix in myself), there are these amazing yogurt creations that are just as tasty, but lower in calories. The yogurt is low calorie, and either nonfat or lowfat, depending upon the flavor, and include probiotics. The bottom line is that it tastes great.
I tried Powered by Chocolate, which was really yummy and had both kids asking for “a taste, just a little taste,” but next time, I’m going to try Strawberry Crumble, which looks like summer in a bowl. My kids both picked ice cream this time, but after looking at the pictures on the shop walls, they both want to try Chocolate Banana Indulgence, which is pretty much a low-cal chocolate banana split. It looks awesome. No surprise, we expect to go back to Cold Stone Creamery very soon.
