    I saw them on the Food Network a while back and was thinking about trying it. Anyone have any comments? Recomendations?

    Cold stone is awesome. They've been out here for a few years. It's all good, i like Dawn's Delight. I think it was sweet cream ice cream with borwnie, cookie dough, choclate fudge sauce and caramel if I am remembering right. Very tasty.

    It's good, but not good enough (IMHO) to justify the price. I brought my daughter and her friend in to one a while back, and I think the bill for the three of us was about $15.00, and these were for the small servings....

    Not bad, but overpriced IMO.

    Awesome product, very expensive, and the one in my area is fond of employing insanely hot girls.

    Good place to go to get a good bowl of ice cream; overpriced IMO, but a good experience nonetheless. I agree, all the girls that work there are hotties for some odd reason.;P

    But I'm not complaining. ;f

    Awesome, Expensive, Hard on the Diet. German Chocolate is great.

    It's good, but expensive. Germanchökolätekäke is good.

    I've always like the end product, but, as others have said, it's a) expensive, b) hard on the waistline, and c) at least in my area, there's always a huge line!

    The other thing that really "bad" about CSC is their pricing structure. Their medium is only 50cents more than the small and the large is only 50 cents more than the medium. You're already paying so much for the small that you figure you might as well chip in a couple more quarters for the next size up.

    Never tried it but it has to be better than that commie Mumia-loving bunch at Ben & Jerry's.

    Cold Stone is REALLY good but it is a little expensive. I try to not go too often. I make it a place for special occasions. :)

    Regarding it being expensive, if you order the large, it's like .70 more and just about double the small. Easily enough to throw it back in the freezer and have some the following day.

    I went there yesterday for a chocolate malt made with sweet cream and hot fudge. Probably had 9000 calories, but boy was it worth it.

    In one of the last couple of months issues of Consumer Reports rated the ice cream as average but all the extra fixins make it a whole lot better.

    I thought it was good but not worth the price.

    I like Marble Slab better. Both are expensive but when I want ice cream, I want ice cream.

    Okay...i finally got to the Cold Stone. I got the chocolate ultimate something and it was great. I actually found a coupon at my hotel when I checked in, so it was $1 off. I thought it was pretty good value for what you got....very tasty. Thanks for all the comments guys/girls
