Cold Stone is taking some of its favorite ice cream flavors and transforming them into kettle corn snack mixes.

The creamery’s new partnership with snack mix maker Sweet Chaos blends together Kettle Corn, drizzles, and other snack elements to make a trail mix-like concoction that heavily leans on the sweet side.

Each of the three flavors contains a blend of kettle corn, pretzel sticks, and cookie bites. Based on the variety, they are then drizzled and garnished.

Cold Stone’s Chocolate Devotion mix uses milk and dark chocolate drizzles, the Birthday Cake remix milk and white drizzles with rainbow sprinkles, while the Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip version uses milk and mint chip drizzles to coat the entire snack set.

All of these snack mix varieties are now available for purchase through the Sweet Chaos website.


Cold Stone Debuts Peanut Butter & Jelly Ice Cream and Build-Your-Own Ice Cream Sandwiches


Time to break out the fat pants, boys and girls. In honor (portent?) of the impending back to school season, Cold Stone Creamery has released a new ice cream and ice cream sandwich flavor that tastes just like recess. On a half day.

According to Brand Eating, the new PB&Just Delicious flavor features peanut butter, grape jelly, and graham cracker crust folded into peanut butter ice cream. For an extra dose of nostalgia, you could also turn the ice cream into an actual sandwich by stuffing it between two giant Nutter Butter cookies.

Alternatively, the ‘Stone has also just launched a new Build-Your-Own Ice Cream sandwich program, opening up the sammich possibilities far beyond your childhood lunchbox. Chocolate and peanut butter on chocolate chip, anyone?


Cold Stone Wants to Make Dads Feel Tall, Dark and Delicious

tall, dark and delicious

Father’s day is right around the corner, and Cold Stone Creamery is offering the Tall, Dark and Delicious to celebrate the occasion.

Rather than play around with bad puns, let’s get right to the sweet spot of this beast of a cake.

The Tall Dark and Delicious consists of Cold Stone’s sweet cream flavored ice cream mixed with brownies, a layer of chocolate ice cream mixed with Oreo cookies and two layers of devil’s food cake. The entire shebang is then covered with fudge ganache and topped with white frosting.

The cake will be available in all of its stores for a limited time only, and Cold Stone will be celebrating its 25th anniversary through August 21.


Cold Stone Creamery Bets Big on New Frozen Yogurt Menu

Determined not to be intimidated by the nationwide trend toward frozen yogurt, Cold Stone Creamery is taking this summer to roll out a slew of their own flavors. Cold Stone will be offering its most popular signature flavors in a proprietary sweet and creamy frozen yogurt.

The brand’s frozen yogurt efforts began at select locations back in January 2011, offering consumers a “premium take” on the low-fat fro-yo trend. The options start at 34 calories an ounce and are available in a special ghea freezer alongside their “super-premium” ice cream offerings, giving customers the ultimate in selection when it comes to their frozen dessert consumption.

Along with the list of the brand’s signature favorites like Cake Batter being translated into low-calorie, low-fat, probiotic frozen yogurt, Cold Stone has also introduced new flavor additions such as Pink CountryTime Lemonade and Blueberry Pomegranate.

Even more interesting than the installation of a Frozen Yogurt Menu, the brand also debuted the Cold Stone Creamery Yogurt Bar back in January, a soft-serve yogurt concept with seven current locations across the nation (Chesapeake, Va. – Virginia Beach, Va. – Scottsdale, Ariz. – Greensboro, N.C. – Charleston, N.C. – Dublin, Calif. – Orange, Calif.). The new concept serves the brand’s new soft-serve yogurt in a self-serve weigh and pay concept, along with a variety of fresh toppings — akin to shops like Yogurtland and Cherry On Top.

Aziz Ansari’s standup game is definitely on point. Here’s a dope little bit he did about Cold Stone Creamery. My favorite part is definitely where he talks about asking for a simple vanilla scoop, only to be told “he’s a bitch”. I won’t spoil anymore, enjoy the clip!


Cold Stone Creamery Pumpkin Ice Cream

Releasing a pumpkin themed offering is pretty much standard for the season, especially if their emphasis is on sweet desserts. Golden Spoon, Dairy Queen, Krispy Kreme and TCBY have all come out with a treat incorporating the giant orange vegetable. Cold Stone’s version is simply titled Pumpkin Ice Cream. Pictured above is the seasonal creation using the pumpkin ice cream flavor:  Pumpkin Pie in the Sky. It blends super premium pumpkin ice cream with graham cracker pie crust, caramel sauce and whipped topping. The seasonal ice cream flavor also highlights the Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie ($10), which has pumpkin ice cream nestled in a graham cracker pie crust garnished with Bettercreme rosettes, cinnamon and chocolate roses. Pumpkin is hype.
