Day of sadness.

Have you ever been to Coldstone Creamery?? If not, I will bake you a cookie, because you are missing out.

Kyler introduced me to Coldstone's in Lawrence our first year at KU. It was love at first sight. I don't believe in love at first sight with humans. With Coldstone's, it was legit.

There is a big counter of different ice creams. You can get cotton candy ice cream. You can get cake batter ice cream. You can get chocolate cake batter ice cream. You can pick any toppings you want to go along with the ice cream. I recommend chocolate, chocolate, chocolate.

I love Coldstone's. Last year they had a contest where anyone could come up with their own creation and enter it to be picked by them as a new official creation. I called mine "Double Dipped Delight" (because it has to have a super lamesauce cheesy name). It was made with White Chocolate ice cream, strawberries, pretzels, and fudge. I ended up going to the 3rd round, which was pretty awesome. I didn't go farther because it all depended on people votes, and the majority of the people I knew didn't have a Coldstone's that was closer than an hour and a half away. But that is totally okay, because I still won a 50 dollar gift card to Coldstone's!!! Me and Kyler most def took advantage of that gift card today.

I got this.

Mint mint chocolate chocolate chip. Mint ice cream, brownies, fudge, and choco chips. Yum. Why yes, I did gain 5 lbs after eating it.

Kyler...the 21 year old soldier in the U.S. Army, got this.

Cotton candy ice cream with gummy bears. Hooah. I do not tell lies.

This was a sad day because tomorrow starts a diet. It is not just any diet. There are stakes and I do not want to lose. So farewell Coldstone's...I have loved you, but you have not loved my belly.


  1. You laugh, but that's the tastiest damn ice cream there.

  2. Ewww...cotton candy ice cream? Sounds gross....and I have never been to a Coldstone Creamery...wait just checked with my sister...I have been once....but didn't have anything like that...just a chocolate shake in a way it doesn't count does it?

  3. Okay it may sound gross, and I may make fun of him, but it is verrry tasty ice cream lol. But nooo that doesn't count! You have to go back, and get one of their creations. They are the bomb.
