Restaurant News: Creamistry's Summer Flavors
Okay ya'll. It's summertime and it's HOT! But what do Houstonians do to cool off? You scream, I scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM! Thankfully, Creamistry has got our backs. They're kicking off summer with special menu items: Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet and Oranges N Cream Ice Cream. What better way to welcome summer than with these "cool" flavors! But hurry in because these limited time items are only available until August 31st. Additionally, during this time, you can upgrade your premium sauce purchase with a novelty Creamistry shot, free!
I had the pleasure of going to the Uptown Houston location near the Galleria for a tasting. The owners were so friendly and hospitable. They really know how to take care of their guests. Both the Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet and Oranges N Cream Ice Cream were awesome. I'm usually not a fan of sorbet because of its sourness and wateriness. However, I would definitely order the Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet again. It was surprisingly creamy yet light and had a great freshness to it. I added a Marshmallow Cream sauce shot to my Oranges N Cream Ice Cream and it was the perfect combination. It brought me back to my childhood days of eating Orange Dreamsicles. I was then treated to Fruity Pebbles Ice Cream in a Waffle Bowl. I really felt like I was eating a bowl of Fruity Pebbles but it was 10 times better! The creaminess of the ice cream mixed with the crunch from the cereal was amazing. Then an added bite with the waffle bowl brought it all together. For my finishing cup, I got the Affogato, a scoop of ice cream with a shot of espresso and whipped cream. Oh my goodness, yall. I could eat/drink this stuff everyday! The espresso had the perfect coffee taste to complement the richness of the ice cream.
Even beyond summer, Creamistry is a go to spot to treat yourself and to cool down (because we all know this heat is year-round). What makes them so special? They say it best on www.creamistry.com:
"When our specially trained Creamologists inject liquid nitrogen into the mixing bowl, combining it with our ice cream mix, the liquid nitrogen quickly evaporates into a big cloud of smoke. Within seconds, the liquid nitrogen has vanished and you’re left with the freshest, creamiest, most indulgent ice cream.
At this stage, it is perfectly safe to consume.
Why? The secret to the creamiest ice cream lies behind the intricate process of rapid freezing the mixture. And with science, we are able to master this! Because liquid nitrogen is so cold, the milk particles stay very small without forming into ice crystals, creating an ultra smooth creamy texture."
I can honestly say that this is some of the creamiest ice cream I've had. Plus, the options are endless to create whatever you want! They have organic and nondairy options as well as a variety of flavors, toppings and bowls. So go ahead, go get your ice cream fix because you know it's hot, Houston.
