KENNA’S WORLD: Cold Stone Creamery

By: Kenna BeechKenna's World

Cold Stone Creamery, located in the Mansfield Crossing plaza at 280 School St. in Mansfield, offers ice cream cakes, pies, cupcakes, cookies, shakes, smoothies, yogurt, sorbet, and ice cream.

Entering the cool and thankfully vacant atmosphere with my friend Drew, a counter filled with all sorts of unique flavors of ice cream awaited. Right before our eyes cheesecake, cake batter, and cotton candy flavored ice cream immediately sparked our interest.

After picking the size of the ice cream we wanted, we were then asked if we wanted a single, or a flavorful mixing of ice cream. This wasn’t the last part either. After selecting our ice creams, which were then mixed on a frozen granite stone, toppings were chosen to add into the ice cream. Choices include candy, brownies, fresh fruit and/or nuts. They even have gummy bears.

My choice was cheesecake and cotton candy ice cream with heath bar mixed in. It came in a huge cup. Drew chose banana and vanilla cream ice cream and mixed in Oreo cookies.

Once this process was completed, the ice cream was instantly handed over the counter. A cashier waited at the end of the counter for checkout.

The price was very reasonable, a total of $5.99 for each of our “Gotta Have It” creation ice creams that neither of us could finish.

Cup sizes come in “Like It (one scoop),” “Love It (two scoops),” or “Gotta Have It (three scoops).”

Cold Stone, which is a great place to visit during vacation, is open Mon. through Sun. noon to 9 p.m. The phone number is (774) 719-2314. For additional information, visit
