Cold Stone Creamery Celebrates National Ice Cream Month
Cold Stone Creamery is well known for offering innovative ice cream combinations of the highest quality served with enthusiasm. So this year, when it came to celebrating National Ice Cream Month with panache, Cold Stone Creamery has decided to shake things up in a big way.
Through July 23rd, dance and ice cream lovers across the country are invited to participate in the Shake It Up contest. Drawing inspiration from Cold Stone Creamery’s new line of shakes and smoothies, contestants will be asked to showcase their most original “shakin’ it up” dance moves in a one-minute video. Seven regional finalists will then be flown to New York City to compete for the grand prize of $5,000 and free ice cream shakes and smoothies for life. For official contest entry rules and details visit www.coldstonecreamery.com/shakeitup. The real reason to celebrate begins this month, when for the first time ever, more than 1,300 Cold Stone Creamery stores across the country will introduce and entirely new line of ice cream shakes and smoothies. In total, nine new shake recipes and eight new smoothies recipes will be available. Each with the same innovative taste profile and indulgent qualities Cold Stone Creamery is known for.
“Of course I’ve always loved National Ice Cream Month, but this year I’m really looking forward to all the exciting initiatives Cold Stone Creamery has to offer,” remarked Ray Karam, Cold Stone Creamery’s Tastemaster. “Creating these new shake and smoothie recipes was a really fun process; we already have top-notch ingredients in the stores - it was just a matter of adding a few enhancements and blending flavor combinations. Shakes and smoothies have been around for a long time, but I think people will be surprised by the unrivaled taste.
In the new shake line, the focus is on blending indulgent, rich flavor combinations resulting in thick, creamy shakes. Flavors such as Cake ‘n Shake made with the famed cake batter ice cream, milk and real yellow cake pieces and PB&C made
with rich chocolate ice cream, milk and peanut butter, are sure to delight loyal Cold Stone Creamery ice cream aficionados and shake connoisseurs alike.
The smoothie line includes new offerings such as yogurt, soymilk, mango puree and nutritional supplements, making these frozen treats the perfecct afternoon pick-me-up or late-night snack. Tastemaster Ray Karam took his love for the tropics and created several one-of-a-kind drink sensations including, Man-Go Bananas made with yogurt or soymilk, sorbet, mango puree and banana, and Berry Lemony
made with sorbet, rasperries, strawberries and lemon. One free nutritional supplement can be added to any smoothie. Supplements include Energy, made with ginseng and ginko biloba extracts, Regenerate, made from green tea, turmeric and grapeseed extracts and Protein, made with soy protein powder. Additional nutritional supplements can be added for a nominal charge (59 cents per additional nutritional supplement; prices may vary per region).
