A friend told me about Cold Stone's new cupcakes. I went to Cold Stone that night to get some. Yes, I love Cold Stone ice cream but I love cupcakes so blending the two seemed perfect. It was a Friday night and the place was packed so we opted for the ready-made cupcakes in the freezer case. They seemed a little pricey at $9.99 for six but I pretty sure they were going to be worth every calorie-saturated penny.
They look pretty, don't they? Starting on the left, we have the Double Chocolate Devotion, then Cake Batter Redux, and finally, Sweet Cream.
Fortunately, the Co-ed was present to help me in my taste test. You may remember her talented taste buds also helped with another review of cupcakes.
According to the description, these are made in a Belgian chocolate cup with a layer of cake covered with fudge sauce, the ice cream flavor of choice, frosting and then the signature item (cookie, sprinkles, or chocolate curls). Since they were multi-leveled, we began by cutting one down the middle.
This one was the Cake Batter Redux. The Co-ed and I were both a little disappointed at the amount of ice cream. We thought there would be more. The dark level on the bottom is supposed to be red velvet cake but really, it was mostly the fudge that goes on top. Hardly any cake in any of the three flavors and certainly not like they are pictured on the marketing. Then again, what food item really looks as good as the commercials, right?
On the plus side, the chocolate cups were really tasty and not so thick that you'd have problems breaking them. The Co-ed thought their flavor overpowered the taste of the ice cream. I say she's a wimp. The frosting tasted more like whipped cream on all three flavors, which wasn't a bad thing.
Still, ten bucks for six little cups? Way too pricey, in my opinion. Stick to getting the Love It size to split with your sweetie.
