Cold Stone Creamery, a name synonymous with premium ice cream and creative concoctions, opened this spring at Stadium Plaza off Route 440 in Jersey City. If you missed it, don’t feel bad as the plaza is undergoing a revamp and thus signage has and remains to be minimal. However, once inside all the familiar offerings awaits.

Officially located at 321 Kellogg St, Cold Stone makes their Ice-cream made fresh in-store daily, ensuring a premium rich and creamy taste. Flavors focus on fan favorites classics like chocolate, strawberry, cookie dough, and pistachio to more adventurous options in cheesecake, marshmallow and cotton candy, giving patrons a wide variety of options. An almond milk-based option also exists for those looking for a dairy alternative.

The store offers an expansive range of mix-ins to accompany your ice cream selection, with over 30 different choices to chose from. Options include branded candy bar pieces from the likes of M&M’s, Reese’s, Kit Kat, fresh fruit, nuts, sauces, and more.

The ice-cream parlor brand is known for an interactive experience where customers get to see their ice cream creations come to life as the dairy dessert is scooped onto a frozen granite slab, toppings of choice mixed and mashed-in, and then finally, scooped into a bowl or cone of your choice. The thwack, thwack, thwack, of metal scoops on the granite slab make for an exciting and enjoyable acoustic experience as one anticipates their chosen creation.

If crafting your creation feels daunting, fear not. Cold Stone’s Signature Creations offer a solution. These are a collection of 18 fan favorite crafted combinations spanning a wide variety of ice cream flavor bases and mix-ins. They also offers shakes and smoothies.

Established in 1988 in Tempe, Arizona, Cold Stone is inspired by the idea of the 10-minute vacation, where patrons can escape from life’s demands and enjoy a rich and creamy treat. The concept has proven successful as the ice cream parlor chain has grown to have locations throughout the US as well as international operations in Africa, Middle East, and Asia.
