It it's June, it's ice cream! Time for a cold dip of your favorite flavor.
It's an almost daily ritual for Freddie and Monica Hernandez -- making fresh ice cream. Says Monica, "Ice cream is great. We wanted to have a place where kids of all ages could come in."
Freddie and Monica may not have found the solution for global warming, but they can sure cure a hot soul on a summer day.
Their place is called the Cold Stone Creamery, and they have got about a dozen and a half flavors all lined up and ready to go. But that's just the beginning. There are all of those add-ins and toppings.
Monica scooped up a big glob of chocolate, to begin a delightful treat called German Chocolate Cake. "We take it out and roll it in a ball, place a nice little divot in it, put a fresh baked brownie in there. We're going to put pecans in it. We're going to put coconut in it -- all hand done. This is fresh. It's not frozen. It's not coming out of a freezer."
The result is a refreshing confection that tastes just like its namesake.
Cold Stone Creamery is near the corner of Jones Creek and George O'Neal Road, next to Eckerd's, behind McDonald's.
