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!
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!!
