Coldstone Creamery Restaurant Review and GIVEAWAY!!


Howdy you all! I told you I would have some good giveaways coming up. This is one of my favorite reviews I have been able to do:) I mean, who doesn't like ice cream? Yes, I said ice cream!! And for those of you who eat healthy, or should I say, snack healthy, Coldstone Creamery also has smoothies!! Yes, good for you, healthy smoothies.

I was overjoyed to be able to do this review. Coldstone Creamery was started in 1988 and their store has anything from shakes to cakes, all featuring ice cream. They also have a birthday club you can join and guess what you get? An ice cream on your birthday! I am telling you, if you want to get real good ice cream, this is the place to go.

After getting my gift card, I went to my local Coldstone Creamery. I have been in here a couple times before and the manager on duty is always friendly and courteous. On this visit, I chose the Cheesecake Fantasy in the Love It size. I really like Cheesecake and so this was a definite pick for me:) And as it was very warm that day, this was very refreshing and cooling. It had just the right amount of graham cracker crust but I thought there was just a little too much strawberry. But that is just my opinion. I can very easily ask for less strawberry next time I order that.

The other option I like is the Strawberry Banana Smoothie. I really like mine with orange juice added, which they easily do for me, at no extra cost. It is kind of healthy, and refreshing on the day I don't feel like having rich ice cream on my stomach. Sometimes the ice cream is just too strong and on those days, the smoothies are the perfect option.

Now, I don't know abut you, but I only know one person who does not like ice cream. Maybe your children don't like it, or your friends, but that is not normally the case. So I am sure you all would love to learn how you can get a $10 gift card to Coldstone Creamery, right? Well, not only was I mailed a gift card for me, but I was mailed one to give away to one of my blog readers!! That's right! One of you will be winning a $10 gift card to Coldstone Creamery. And even if you don't have one of their stores near you, you can always send it to someone as a gift, especially with the holidays coming up.

MANDATORY ENTRY:You must go to Coldstone Creamery and tell me what Signature Collection you would like to try. You have to go to the website and tell me the flavor.
