Marble Slab Creamery is knockoff of the Cold Slab Creamery from our neighbors down south. It combines the lasting tradition of good ole ice cream, delicious candies and fruit and a fantastic presentation of the mixing process on the ‘marble slab’. Let’s get on with the review!
The process is super simple. You select the type of ice cream you want (we chose ‘Cheese Cake’ this time):
Then, you act like 5 year-old, jump up and down, point to the candy or sweetened fruit you want with your previous selection (we got cherry):
Now, you’ve done the hard work. You just have to stand back and watch the ‘ice cream engineer’ get to work:
“Fold, squish, fold, squish, fold, squish, rinse, repeat”…….
As you may have noticed, we chose the waffle cone to uphold this delicious dessert. There are other choices such as a bowl, waffle bowl and an array of different flavored waffle cones – mind you that we had the waffle bowl a couple of times but the waffle was stale. Despite my last point, Wendy and I enjoy coming back to this place time and time again because of how many ways we can mix the selections of ice cream and condiments. I personally enjoy watching the ice cream being mixed in front of eyes instead of being dispensed out of a machine. That’s the little cost I am willing to pay ($5.20) and Marble Slab stands out among the other traditional dairy dessert outlets which we will remain nameless.
Other flavor recommendation: Sweet Cream – don’t knock it ’til you try it!
I personally love the amaretto ice cream with a Skor mixin. Their prices are crazy high relative to the gelato places, but every so often I need the creamy full-fat goodness of Marble Slab.
