I was so glad when I saw there was no queue outside of the Cold Stone Creamery branch at Orchard Central in the early afternoon. I decided to try Cold Stone Creamery at last, after hearing so many positive reviews about it.
To be honest, I was quite puzzled on what to order, as the menu was full of different quirky and fun names, with many different types of add-ons. I went for Our Strawberry Blonde and Chocolate Devotion eventually. I was impressed by their act of mixing the different ingredients, ice-cream and add-ons together in front of the customers. It was quite an entertainment. Oh my, the staff must have practiced very hard to master those skills.
The Our Strawberry Blonde was very fruitful indeed. There’s an abundance of the real strawberries, unlike some other ice-cream shops which give very little of the real fruit. Together with the caramel, the overall taste was very sweet. It really satisfies people with a sweet tooth, like me. The Chocolate Devotion offered a different taste. The chocolate was very thick, such that it would please the chocolate lovers very much but leave the neutrals feeling tired of it half-way through. Also, the waffles were nicely done. They were crispy and rather addictive.
The service made me feel very welcome, and the ambience was great for chilling out in a hot afternoon.
