Fall is in full swing, and winter is right on its heels. However, that does not mean you have to forgo that trip to your local ice cream shop in Sonoma County. Here at Cold Stone Creamery, we firmly believe that ice cream is a year-round treat, here are five reasons why.
1) No Lines
Many people mistakenly believe that ice cream is a warm-weather treat, and thus tend to reserve trips to the ice cream shop for the summer months. Because of this, there are often shorter, or no lines, meaning you don’t have to wait as long for that first shockingly delicious taste.
2) A Taste of the Season
Of all the seasons, fall and winter are the ones with the most unique and crave-able flavors. Peppermint, hot chocolate, pumpkin spice, candy cane, sugar cookie, apple cider, and eggnog just to name a few. These wonderful flavors are often only available for a limited time during the Holliday Season – aka the cold weather months. Of course, with holidays’ come pie and with pie comes a la mode and is there a better pairing than hot apple pie with a scoop of creamy ice cream?
3) A Less Messy Experience
At the peak of the summer season, ice cream and quickly turn to soup, dripping down your hand, into your lap and making quite a mess. As the temperatures decrease, however, ice cream stays frozen for longer, allowing you to savor each bite.
4) Helps Keep You Warm
Believe it or not, eating ice cream can help you keep warm – it’s science! It is true that at first, ice cream will cool you down, which is why it is popular in the summer. But when your body begins to digest the fats, carbs, and sugars in the ice cream, it triggers a reaction that actually increases your temperature, helping you feel warm and toasty.
5) Be Honest, Do You Really Need a Reason?
A trip to your local ice cream shop in Sonoma County is a great way to bond with friends and family, indulge in a bit of self-care, and set aside your daily stresses. As an ultimate comfort food, ice cream doesn’t have to be limited to the summer.
