Summer may be over, but ice cream is always a hot treat.
Cold Stone Creamery serves cool confections every day to the ice-cream connoisseur or the grown-up kid who needs an occasional sundae on Sunday.
Walk into the ice cream shop and you’re immediately met with an array of flavor choices for sorbets, milk shakes, smoothies, coffee drinks and ice cream cakes.
And special to the Pikesville market—they're kosher.
“Our treats throughout the entire store are kosher,” said Marisa Ybarra-Reyes, director of operations. “Customers can go to the website and find out information about all of our products.”
What keeps customers coming back, even during the crisp days of fall before the winter’s slumber sets in? The answer could be in the flavors.
“The customers love the cake-batter ice cream, Ybarra-Reyes said. "Some will wait for the Sunday (newspaper) coupon offers and stop by the shop to get their favorite flavor ice cream, shake or sorbet."
From time-to-time, the shop holds special promotions for new flavors like mojito sorbet.
These special promotions normally benefit an organization like The Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Not only are you purchasing a special treat, but you’re giving and helping someone at the same time as you satisfy your inner ice-cream child.
Cold Stone also carries cupcakes, icy drinks, lattes, ice cream cookie sandwiches, healthy indulgences, including special fat- and sugar-free treats, a variety of toppings, including crushed candies, sprinkles and crushed cookies.
For more information about special promotions and more, visit the Cold Stone Creamery website, or call the store at 410-484-3030.
