I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream

I went to Cold Stone yesterday for some ice cream and I have to say, I really don't get it. It just seems like a lot of extra work to me. For both the customer and the person working. If you are not familiar with the place, it's the ice cream joint where each flavor is hand mixed right before your very own eyes. It would much easier if they just made all the flavors in a big tub ready to go, instead of having this long process of watching them throw it all together and mix it up as if they were making the polio vaccine and saving the world. I mean...polio is pretty much gone but you get my point. No offense to anyone out there with polio. My 9th grade history teacher had polio. Her name was Ms. Dobbs. She was a real hoot. She liked ice cream. I think she's dead now. Man, 9th grade really sucked. But offense to anyone with polio.

I'm just saying....why all that mixing? Just scoop it out and put it into a dish for me.

I concur. I always get excited when I go to Coldstone. But it's a gimmick. It's the same thing as if you went to Stewart's, except that at Stewart's, you don't get the Charlie Brown waving his hand's over the ice cream magic thing going on. But the result is not magic... just plan old flavored ice cream. That's it. I'm boycotting Cold Stone. And really, how cold are their stones?
