With the temperatures rising and only promising to get higher, Boca residents can get an ice cream sandwich reprieve.
Over the weekend, CREAM Nation opened its doors in Mission Bay as the first Palm Beach County location and the fourth in the Sunshine State, doling out cold ice cream sandwiched between soft, warm cookies and smothered in sweet toppings.
“We felt it was not only a fantastic product, but it has a great price point and let’s face it, it’s ice cream,” said Jared Cohen, who is a franchise co-owner with his brothers Brad and Seth.
Guests have their choice of 18 ice cream flavors, then choose their cookie of choice to sandwich it between. Cookies include chocolate chip, sugar, Snickerdoodle, macadamia nut, oatmeal raisin and confetti. To top it all off, patrons choose from litany of toppings like M&Ms, Oreo crunch, s’mores, Snickers, Butterfingers, Fruity Pebbles and more. And the staff behind the counter don’t hand over meager portions, either. The icing on the cake? It’s only $4.99.
“West Boca Raton has been starving for this,” Cohen said. “A family of four can come in, everybody have their own individual sandwiches for $20. That’s just unheard of.”
Besides the ice cream sandwiches, the store offers floats, malts, milkshakes and the CREAM Taco, which three ice cream flavors and two toppings nestled inside a waffle shell. For those with dietary restrictions, there’s gluten-free and vegan cookies as well as soy and gluten-free ice creams available.
