In honor of National Ice Cream Month, on Saturday, July 2 between 10 a.m. and noon, every Cold Stone Creamery location across the country will offer free tasting samples of the following ice cream flavors: Wasabi Ginger, Fruity Cereal, Black Licorice, Oatmeal Cookie Batter, and Tangerine Sorbet. Inspired by the exhilarating playfulness of summertime, this group of unique flavors showcases Cold Stone's passion for ice cream. These five flavors are available only during the month of July and will be followed by one new flavor each month including Blueberry in August, Cookie Batter in September, Espresso in October, Carrot Cake Batter in November, and Dark Chocolate Peppermint in December.
"It was a thrill developing these flavors, and I'm excited to hear reactions from ice cream aficionados across the country," says Ray Karam, Cold Stone's Tastemaster(TM). "Each of the flavors being introduced in July will appeal to different people for different reasons, and that's the beauty of showcasing such a wide variety of taste profiles. When ice cream is the subject matter, it is truly a dream to work with a company that embraces creativity and exploration."
In addition to the tasting event, Cold Stone will celebrate National Ice Cream Month by awarding free ice cream for a year. Each store across the country will give away one certificate good for ice cream for a year -- that's nearly 1,100 opportunities to. To enter the drawing, visit a Cold Stone on July 2 from 10 a.m. to noon. The lucky winners will be announced on-site and must be present to win.
