Sweet tooths line up for ice cream concoctions made on a granite slab.. In Short Crowds of couples, teenagers and parents with toddlers press up against the long refrigerated display case at this dessert chain, where a variety of ice creams, frozen yogurts and sorbets are made in-store daily. Customers choose flavors like sweet cream, cake batter or banana, add mix-ins--ranging from candy bar chunks and Gummi bears to hot fudge and peanut butter--then servers mash it all together on a frozen slab of granite.
Creamery leaves me cold.
While the Cold Stone Creamery SEEMS like a neat idea, I was pretty dissatified with our experience. It's not the staff's fault - they are very helpful and personable. I didn't like the ice cream! The texture and taste were not pleasing to me. I thought it was very expensive, too. And what was even worse is that artificial-smelling waffle cone aroma that completely permeates the store - and your clothes even hours later! I will NEVER go back to a Cold Stone Creamery again. Give me Gelato Classico any day.
I thought the place was highly overrated. I prefer my basic ice cream to be creamy and with extreme flavor. I had their most flavorful vanilla with cookie dough and I was disappointed. It wasn't very creamy, they needed to keep chopping up the ingredients, very lumpy. Very disappointing
This particular Cold Stone is our favorite. We always receive prompt service and the young people are always friendly. We actually live in San Jose and when we want ice cream we drive 20 miles to this Cold Stone and we have others closer that we have visitied but do not like as well as thei Cold Stone.
Smack me silly!.
Wow, this is GREAT! A bit on the soft side (otherwise they couldn't smash it up so good), the ice cream has a great flavor and the mix-ins blend superbly. The help is fun, too, making for an enjoyable experience. If only they didn't hawk the extra portions (at a price) so much...
