True or false: Cold Stone Creamery once served crickets.
When one thinks of Cold Stone Creamery, odds are crickets and other creepy crawly insects aren’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind. Instead, you’re probably focused on creamy ice cream, rich chocolate syrups and rainbow colored sprinkles. Strangely enough, Cold Stone Creamery did have a cricket campaign back in 2001. In an attempt to cash in on the nation’s obsession with the reality television show “Survivor,” Cold Stone made chocolate covered crickets available for purchase at all of their then 142 locations. Any customer who was brave enough to top their ice cream with the crickets were given a voucher for a free ice cream on their next visit and were automatically entered into a raffle to win a trip to the Australian site where the show was being filmed. The crickets weren’t exactly a hit, but those who had the stomach to try these insects noted that they tasted a lot like chocolate covered potato chips. That is if you could get past the whole insect thing to begin with. Nowadays if you’re searching Cold Stone near me, you’re not going to find any crickets, but the brand still capitalizes on trends from time to time. For example, Cold Stone partnered with Jelly Belly in 2008 to offer toppings such as Birthday cake Remix, Apple Pie a la Cold Stone, and Chocolate devotion. If you’re looking to deviate from the norm, Cold Stone has got you covered.
True or false: Cold Stone once made non-melting ice cream.
If you’re searching Cold Stone near me, you’re probably not too keen on a dessert of Jello or any other non-melting treats, but that didn’t stop Cold Stone from once again trying something new. Back in 2009, Cold Stone partnered up with the Jell-O company to produce a limited edition line of pudding flavored ice creams. The original flavors included: chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, and banana. The special scoops of pudding flavored ice cream had one strange slightly unintentional feature- the ice cream never melted. Since the flavors were made with an actual Jell-O mix and then served chilled as an ice cream, if they were to sit out at room temperature they would not melt into a liquid. Instead, the frozen treat would return back to its pudding form and look a lot like what you would get from a grocery store pudding cup or the instant pudding you would produce in your own kitchen.
