Cold Stone Creamery: Giving Manilans The Ultimate Ice Cream Experience

Cold Stone Creamery Philippines

Ice cream is most probably the one product that is a necessity in this side of the world given the hot weather. I was pretty much bummed about the death of the Häagen-Dazs chain, but that somber feeling was quickly turned to excitement with the birth of another Ice cream giant: Cold Stone Creamery.

I had my first encounter with the ice cream chain that claims to give the "ultimate ice cream experience" at Old Town Alexandria. I had two scoops of plain strawberry ice cream {my favorite Cold Stone Creamery flavor}.  I didn't have that much expectation with the brand, but I was immediately smitten by their product. 

I think that the extra pull Cold Stone Creamery has on customers, aside from their amazing ice cream, is the entertainment factor that goes with the purchase. They have this chilled granite stone where the mixing of the ice cream and all the add-ons are done. It's quite fun to watch!

STEP 1: Pick your flavor

You can go for the plain ones or for Cold Stone Creamery's Signature Creations. I suggest that you go for the latter. You can also create your own one-of-a-kind mix! The combinations are limited only by one's imagination. In fact, a Harvard Business School Doctoral student found out that there are about 11.5 million possible Cold Stone Creamery product combinations!

This is the fun part and the second best part of the ultimate ice cream experience! You can watch the Cold Stone Creamery servers mix your delicious creation on top of a special chilled granite stone. Mine's the one on your left. There is, apparently, a five second rule in mixing the creations.

STEP 4: The best part

Eating, of course! 

I got the Our Strawberry Blonde while hubs ordered the Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip. The former has the combination of an outrageously good ice cream creation: strawberry ice cream, graham pie crust, caramel syrup and strawberry chunks. One word: amazing! The heart {strawberry ice cream} of the creation itself is excellent. The ice cream is filled with intense strawberry flavor and is very smooth and creamy. The mix-ins made it extremely good! 

I also like Cheesecake Fantasy, Mud Pie Mojo and Cookie Doughn't You Want Some! Ooooh, delicious!!!

Hubs has a strong penchant for mint ice cream; I don't. According to him, the Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip is delicious. It has chocolate chips, brownies and fudge. I can't say that I agree with him given the fact that I don't have love for mint ice cream in all. It's like eating toothpaste, don't you think? Well, to each his own.

Cold Stone Creamery also have shakes, smoothies, coffee and ice cream cakes on their menu. There is so, so much more to try! I hope that they'd open a branch in the Greenhills area soon! Speaking of which, the SM MOA branch will be in full operation come July. They will open a few more branches by the third quarter of this year. 

Cold Stone Creamery is also in the business of giving. They support the Make-A-Wish Foundation and other charities as well. Cool, right?
