I’ve had my fair share of bad ice cream. What’s considered bad? Ice cream that tastes icy instead of creamy! I have made ice cream before, so I know that when ice cream melts, and when you try to refreeze them over and over again, you get bad ice cream. If you’re going to indulge in something sweet and special, make those calories worth it!
Recently we visited Creamistry in Irvine to find out what their liquid nitrogen ice cream is all about. By the way, don’t expect to have your freebie tasting of each flavor. Everything is made-to-order. Once you’ve had one, you’ll understand why “tasting” may not be necessary. We tried probably 10 different flavors, and every single one was so creamy, delicious and true to flavor!
HOW IT WORKS:
STEP 1. Pick your flavor. You can pick what’s on the “popular” menu, or the general menu, or even create your own.
STEP 2: Pick your milk base.
- PREMIUM (signature): Rich and indulgent, smoothest and creamiest of all bases. All natural with no preservatives.
- ORGANIC: 100% organic ingredients, KSA Kosher, and Non-GMO .
- SORBET: Non-dairy and water based. Available in Blueberry, Mango, Peach and Strawberry.
- NITRO-DOLE: Pineapple sorbet that is fat-free, lactose-free, allergen-free, and cholesterol-free. Also available in shakes.
STEP 3: Pick your toppings and/or fresh baked goods. They have an awesome selection to choose from! Their cookies and brownies are baked fresh daily and their crunchy waffle cones are made throughout the day for freshness. Their cookies make great ice cream sandwiches, and the brownies are good enough to eat all by themselves!
STEP 4: Wait. Your ice cream is being made fresh and will be ready for you with your name on it!
STEP 5: Indulge.
Creamistry is ice cream done right! It comes out fresh, creamy, and smooth, – so good! I was in heaven. Every flavor was spot on! You’ll have to try their Churro flavor. It’s organic based with marshmallow cream topping – so genius! Surprisingly, it wasn’t too sweet and the combo officially became my favorite ice cream in this lifetime! Their Nitro-Dole is incredibly light, creamy, and not too sweet. It’s a totally guilt–free pleasure! Be prepared for the best ice cream of your life. I die.
