Ice Cream that doesn't melt? I'm suspicious.


I am a huge fan of Cold Stone Creamery (but I'll take some good ol' Foo's Fabulous Frozen Custard any ol' day)but I'm a bit leery of their latest product coming out next month.

Ice cream that doesn't melt at room temperature....kind of reminds me of that crappy styrofoam "Astronaut" ice cream you can buy in museum gift shops...

Combining the awesomeness of Cold Stone and the awesomeness of Jell-O Pudding (Is there anything Bill Cosby CAN'T do?!) seems pretty good, but really?

The new product, which is co-branded with the Kraft Jell-O brand name, is a product that is ice cream at cold temperatures, but Jell-O pudding-like at room temperature.

The chain is introducing four flavors that the company says have a texture like mousse. They will be offered at all locations nationwide in July: all stores will offer butterscotch and chocolate versions, while vanilla and banana pudding flavors will be optional.

I'm intrigued...

Even more intriguing are these recipes from Cold Stone for delicious summer treats such as Puddin' Pops, Puddin' Cookie Sandwiches and Butterscotch Trifle in a Cup.

Only problem if you don't live near a Cold Stone? They of course require the ice cream to make them....

This might need an independednt Moxie field test and product review when it comes out. (Or maybe I just want some ice cream...)

coldstone is overprice gimmicky crap, there are plenty of local ice-cream and custard options.

I'm very suspicious... I think I'll await the Moxie field test before deciding.
