With Spring finally in session, and the temperature is slowly rising, ice cream season is coming. Are you looking for a new way to experience the way you order ice cream? Introducing the 10-week old ice cream shop: CoolMess, where you can make your own ice cream. That is right…make…your own…ice cream.
CoolMess offers customers the choice to either eat pre-made ice cream, or to create ice cream yourself while also ordering from the shop’s full meal menu.
Creating ice cream takes 3 steps:
- Choose a base: Vanilla or Chocolate
- Choose 3 mix-ins from the 33 options
You can be creative and create your own combination, or go for one of CoolMess’ recommended combinations. Each table comes with one mixer, and serves up to four people. The entire process takes about 10 minutes but with the music that blasts in the room, and a group of friends to chat with, time passes by quickly.
I created two of my own ice cream batches. One had a base of vanilla and the other had a base of chocolate. The vanilla was mixed-in with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Oreos, and Chocolate Pretzels. The chocolate was mixed in with Hot Fudge, Marshmallows, Graham Crackers, and Chocolate Chips.
The best part of creating your own ice cream other than a new experience was that you can really taste the freshness in each batch!
I also created my own sundae with the pre-made flavors CoolMess offers and tried the Red Velvet Birthday Cake flavor with a scoop of the S’mores flavor. I topped my sundae with chunks of Edible Cookie Dough from Cookie Dō , Rainbow Sprinkles, Whipped Cream, and Hot Fudge served in a Funfetti Waffle Bowl!
So the next time you are in New York City, make sure to head over to CoolMess for the ultimate ice cream experience.
