Cold Stone Creamery Launches Frozen Yogurt

Cold Stone Creamery Launches Frozen Yogurt

Cold Stone Creamery, which has been testing frozen yogurt in select locations for the past six months, has rolled out the low-fat product nationwide.

Cold Stone’s low-calorie, low-fat and probiotic frozen yogurt is being stocked in many of the chain’s traditional ice cream flavors, including French vanilla, strawberry, cheesecake, cotton candy and key lime. In addition, newer flavors such as pink lemonade and blueberry-pomegranate are being offered.

“Flavor favorites like Cake Batter are a great way to extend the Cold Stone experience to frozen yogurt,” said Ray Karam, who oversees product development for Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Cold Stone.

The frozen yogurt, at 34 calories an ounce, provides a diet-conscious option for guests, the company said. At least one flavor of the frozen yogurt will be offered alongside the ice cream flavors available for fruit, nut and candy mix-ins.

In addition, the frozen yogurt will continue to be served in the seven Cold Stone Creamery Yogurt Bar locations, which also debuted in January. These self-serve weigh-and-pay locations are being expanded, the company said, with several under construction.

The Yogurt Bar sites currently are in Charleston, N.C.; Chesapeake, Va.; Dublin, Calif.; Greensboro, N.C.; Orange, Calif.; Scottsdale, Ariz.; and Virginia Beach, Va.

Cold Stone Creamery, which is a subsidiary of Kahala Corp., has more than 1,500 units in 17 nations.

Coldstone Founder’s Favorite Copycat Recipe

One of my very favorite memories from college is the smell of nail polish remover and waffle cones.

A nail salon and a Coldstone Creamery stood side by side at my favorite entrance to the mall. I don't know why, but there's something magical about walking into a mall– especially when you're a teenager with no major, life-burdening financial responsibilities. The mall is so liberating, beckoning to you with all of it's shining, glittering new things. Something about it makes you feel like time stands still, and things are pretty and smell good, and you're surrounded by nothing but possibilities. Beautiful, perfume-y possibilities.

And so I love that smell. It reminds me of a grand time in my life when I spent every penny I earned on new clothes and pedicures. Don't ask me how I ever managed to pay rent… it's a total mystery to me to this day.

Thanks the nostalgia I associate with that particular mall entrance, Coldstone has a particularly soft spot in my heart.

But apparently, my husband doesn't share the sentiment. Which baffles me. I seriously can't wrap my brain around loving a man who doesn't like Coldstone.

But….. I do. So that's that. And after a long and hard-fought battle, I've had to resign myself to other ice-cream eateries. Which is all well and good, seeing as how I love ice cream in it's many forms.

And seeing as how I can easily make my favorite Coldstone flavor combo at home anyway.

Really, the most difficult part about making “slab-like” ice cream at home is creating a workspace that doesn't involve letting ice cream melt all over the counter tops. And finding suitable… scrapers.

Is that what they're called? Those thing-ys they use to scrape the ice cream and smush in the toppings?

Anyway. Problem solved. I used my Silpat to create a non-stick workspace for scraping and smushing. And using wooden spatulas worked like a dream. Once I had that part figured out, the rest was gravy!

Grab your favorite vanilla ice cream and add brownies, pecans, caramel sauce, and hot fudge. Smush it all together for a delicious copycat version of Coldstone's Founder's Favorite. So easy and the perfect way to impress your kiddos this summer.
