I remember how my sister and I would line up day after day in the freezing cold (yes, there's a line despite the weather) just for a cup of Cold Stone Creamery in the US.
And now, it's here in the Philippines!
I was invited to the opening of the first branch in Serendra but I wasn't able to go because I was out of town for my birthday. But last month, T and I finally got to visit the store for a taste of Cold Stone Creamery.
There are so many flavors to choose from.
If you're overwhelmed with all the choices, I suggest just picking from their Signature Creations.
I got the Germanchocolatekake which is chocolate ice cream with pecans, coconut, brownie and caramel.
The sizes they have are:
Gotta Have It
The price would depend on whether it is plain ice cream, a create your own mix, or a signature creation. Prices range from P95/$3 for a Lick It Ice Cream to P1,288/$30 for an Everybody's Signature Creation.
This is a Like It Signature Creation (P168/$4) called Coffee Lovers Only which is composed of mocha ice cream (they ran out of coffee ice cream), heath bar, roasted almonds and caramel. I had this the other night in the Mall of Asia branch after watching the DLSU-FEU game.
There's always some sort of commotion in Cold Stone because of the "challenge" they have for customers, catching your scoop of ice cream!
I pressured T into doing it even if he didn't want to. Thankfully, he was able to catch his (or else I wouldn't hear the end of it).
But our friend Raffy Dy suffered a different fate. Check out this video:
Don't forget to leave a tip for all the fun fare!
Since my one and only public hater insinuated that I am committing some sort of blogger's sin for not indicating whether my posts are sponsored or not, here's what I have to say: T and I pay for 99% of what I write about. For the remaining 1%, I make it fairly obvious that it is sponsored by either saying that it is or thanking the sponsor for whatever it is they gave. And like I said in my 'Disclosure', all views and opinions expressed in this blog are guaranteed to be purely personal and will never be influenced by any affiliate or sponsor. This is a fairly late reaction to a comment made a few months back but I thought I'd address it in the future and today is that day. With that, I bid everyone a good day! ;)
Fun and friendly staff.
Great ice cream.
T and I will definitely be back, again and again!
