Ah, there you are, the Cold Stone Cakes. The dessert world’s version of a Hibachi grill. The Cold Stone Ice Cream parlor where we go to be scolded by an impatient (socially-distanced) queue of ice cream enthusiasts like ourselves for having too many flavors and topping choices to choose from.

The perfume of freshly cooked waffle cones greets you as soon as you enter Cold Stone. It’s not a bottled scent that they employ to attract consumers; it’s the genuine kind. Every single candy, cookie, and Cold Stone Ice Cream topping you can think of is on this list, and you know how it can throw your brain into both a state of joy and overload.

You’ve seen the hand-dipped waffle cones with chocolate, almonds, and/or sprinkles. If you’re anything like the Dalai Lama, you’ll want to make sure you get the whole month. Until you discover the added cost of waffle cones and each mix-in (which varies from shop to store, but normally about 70 cents for each mix-ins after the first free one) can stack up quickly.


Cheesecake Shake Cherry Loves

If you ask, most businesses will still produce it for you even if it is no longer in production. The Create Your Own option allows you to utilize cheesecake Cold Stone Ice Cream in a shake with cherry pie filling as the mix-in if your waitress does not know it.

If you’re a fan of pie crust, add graham crackers to the mix. Ask your waitress to put the pie filling on top of the shake rather than mixing it in, and you’ll be able to swirl it into every mouthful with your straw.


Raspberry Sorbet with Cotton Candy Ice Cream

Use Cold Stone Coupon for extra each mix-in, but you may combine as many varieties of ice cream as you like as long as the server can fit them into the appropriate 5-, 8-, or 12-oz cup.


Strawberry Savory Shake

Cold Stone’s shakes are delicious because they are made with genuine ice cream, milk, and a variety of flavorings. Because this Cold Stone Ice Cream lover couldn’t make up his mind, they’re all getting a mention today. With strawberry ice cream and 2–3 scoops of strawberries, there isn’t much you can do to improve on the Savory Strawberry… Unless you request half-and-half Cheesecake ice cream from your waitress. Then, you can make it better.

Milk and Oreo Shake

The Milk n’ Oreo Cookies Shake, made by combining Sweet Cream Cold Stone Ice Cream with 2–4 Oreos, is a hot seller.

Cake and Shake (aka The Cake Batter Shake)

But what if Cold Stone’s Holy Grail were to tremble? Also known as the Cold Stone Cakes n’ Shake, or the Cold Stone Cakes Batter Shake. Smoothie made with Cake Batter Cold Stone Ice Cream and chunks of yellow cake stirred together. Golden and delicious cake batter. You may experiment with other mix-ins, but in the humble opinion of this ice cream enthusiast (I tried every mix-in in the shake and the conclusion is…), this shake is best enjoyed on its own.

It’s Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream!

Cold Stone Cakes Pumpkin Cheesecake and Pumpkin flavors are both pumpkin-themed. You may not always be able to get your hands on a regular Pumpkin Spice Latte at your local Cold Stone Creamery.

Both tastes are superior, but in different but better ways, in the opinion of one Cold Stone Ice Cream aficionado. Even the most ardent pumpkin haters could be swayed by Pumpkin Cheesecake. Pecans, caramel, whipped cream, coconut, cinnamon, graham cracker pie crust…the list goes on and on…

Hot for Cookie

Among the “Hot Stone” desserts offered by Cold Stone Creamery, the Hot 4 Cookie has a heated chocolate cookie, a scoop of French vanilla Cold Stone Ice Cream, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings on a mound of cookie dough. Salted caramel, chocolate, and peanut butter ice cream flavors are all excellent substitutes for this recipe.


Ice Cream with Cake Batter

Cake Batter Ice Cream from Cold Stone Cakes Creamery has become a cult favorite. Despite their best efforts, other manufacturers just can’t match it.

In addition to the Cake n’ Shake, Cookie Dough is one of the most popular additions to Cake Batter. Cake Batter Cold Stone Ice Cream with Sprinkles, Brownies, and Hot Fudge are the main ingredients of the Birthday Cake Remix, which is the restaurant’s signature creation. One of the writer’s favorite Remix riffs: replacing the fudge and brownie with Oreos and yellow cake, respectively. You have a birthday every year.

Banana Split Cold Stone Ice Cream

As a rotating flavor, peanut butter isn’t available at every Cold Stone Creamery. So, if you’re fortunate enough to stumble into it, consider yourself lucky. Peanut Butter Cold Stone Ice Cream with cookie dough, fudge, and Reese’s cups was my go-to break meal for the first year I worked there. Half-and-half ice cream with salted caramel flavor is also delicious.

Vanilla Bean Cold Stone Ice Cream

If you like coffee, you’ll love Cold Stone’s Coffee Ice Cream. It’s better than any ice cream you’ll get at the grocery store. With so many fantastic pairings, it’s more adaptable than you’d expect.


Coffee Lover’s Only and Mud Pie Mojo are two of its Signature Creations.

There are almonds, Heath Bar, and caramel in the Coffee Lovers. It’s so delicious that I had a regular client who would come in every three weeks and order three gallons to take home.

During my final year at Cold Stone, my favorite dessert was the Mud Pie, which had peanut butter, fudge, nuts, and Oreos. Almonds and peanut butter were often replaced with hot brownies and Reese’s bar since I worked out a lot.


Favorite of the Founders

Okay. So the name is a little bit of an indicator. If you couldn’t tell, this was the favorite of the creator of Cold Stone Creamery. For a good purpose, though. Pecans, fudge, caramel, and brownies make up the Sweet Cream Cold Stone Ice Cream. Changing the ice cream flavor is free, and this one works well with Salted Caramel or French Vanilla.
