Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream: A Fiesta of Flavours on Maadi’s Road 9
Ella Fitzgerald surely wasn’t right when she serenaded Summertime and the Living is Easy; because it isn’t, not in this heat. Perhaps if you're not on the beach tanning, a large scoop of the creamy, rich and refreshing ice cream that is Cold Stone and Creamery, is all the treat you need around this time of the year.
With its newly opened branch in Maadi on Street 9, Cold Stone Creamery will have your head turning with a colorful selection of insanely tasty flavors, its freshly baked biscuits invigorating your nostrils and its miniscule to gigantic ice cream sizes.
Between the creamy rich vanilla, the coffee-infused mocha, the multi-colored berry fiesta, the nation’s most beloved nutella flavor and many others, the choice was obvious; pick one flavor and take forever to choose, or spend all our cash delving into all the ice cream flavors available in the store.
After picking the largest ice cream biscuit—which you can order plain or with chocolate, we opted for four different flavors; a large scoop of oreo ice cream (17LE), another with dark chocolate flavor (17LE), a cotton candy flavor—an instant throwback to our childhood (13LE) and a mint-flavored ice cream scoop (13LE).
The insane flavorful fiesta of ice cream didn’t disappoint; they were all unique, tasty and quite delightful. We would’ve however preferred if the ice cream texture was thicker but the delicious flavors that pampered our taste buds completely made up for that.
Tempted to try out more of what Cold Stone Creamery offers, we opted for a ‘Strawberry Blonde’ waffle with a blackberry sauce, marshmallows, strawberry and vanilla ice cream filling (35LE with 7LE for every additional filling). The waffle was insanely tasty; only the marshmallows were quite dry.
Cold Stone and Creamery also has a fantastic selection of milkshakes from which we ordered a refreshing Blackberry milkshake (30LE).
Overall, tasting most of all the flavors Cold Stone Creamery has in store for us was an incredible experience that will surely keep us coming to quench our ice cream urges. Perhaps if there was more room into our tummies, we would’ve definitely ordered the zesty lemon ice cream which was light, sour and super refreshing.
