Ice Cream

On Thursday, March 3rd, Mrs. Rambousek's and Mrs. Konrardy's classes visited Cold Stone Creamery. The students worked hard in order to earn a trip to Cold Stone. While there, the students were first greeted by the owners. Then everyone was taken on a tour of the facility. The students were lucky enough to be at Cold Stone while fresh ice cream was being made.

Did you know that when ice cream is being made it is kind of warm? The students learned that it takes 10 hours to freeze the ice cream before it can be served. For 4 of those 10 hours, the ice cream is in a special freezer that is set at -40°F!! Then the students toured the very LARGE freezers at Cold Stone. The students were even able to walk right in the freezer to see how cold it was, BURR!

Next, the students were able to go behind the counter and see all of the flavors of ice cream and various mix-ins that Cold Stone has to offer. Everyone got to see the actual stone that all of the ice cream is mixed on. This is the stone that gives Cold Stone Creamery its name. We learned that the stone is layers of pure stone that human hands never touch! If all of that wasn't exciting enough, each student was able to enjoy a dish of ice cream with their choice of ice cream flavor and a candy mix-in!!
