Cold Stone Creamery

If your taste buds feel dead and need a pick-me-up, shuffle your way to Cold Stone Creamery for a tasty treat. The good folks at Cold Stone allow you to design your creamy creation. First, choose your size--like it, love it or gotta have it; then the mix-ins--nuts, candy, fruit and more; and then a cup or waffle. Your hand-picked mix-ins are folded into the ice cream on a frozen granite stone so you can enjoy them with every bite. Shakes and cakes are also available. Zombies and other monsters are sure to love the Cookie Mintster creation with mint ice cream, Double Oreo cookies and fudge. Mintster, monster--oh well, it's all delicious.
