I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice-cream!

I love to ask my kids what they want to be when they grow up.

For Sam the future “dream” occupations can change on a daily basis. Sometimes he wants to be a pilot (so he can be like daddy) a policeman or fireman.

For a while there, he wanted to be a wrestler as well as a food/restaurant reviewer – I think maybe he has a little bit of a boy-crush on Matt Preston.

When Amelia grows up, she wants to do two things. She’s stuck with the same two things for ages and I don’t see her changing her mind anytime soon.

She wants to be a princess (don’t we all?)

~ AND ~

She wants to sell ice-cream

Not bad dreams really.

When I had the opportunity to take my kids to Cold Rock to experience the Save the Gummi Bears promotion, my little food connoisseur and future ice-cream sales woman were in their element.

Have you ever been to Cold Rock? It is a little bit expensive to go regularly, but as a sometimes treat, it’s absolutely lovely.

Choose It. Mix It. Smash It. Love It.

Choose It: You choose your favourite ice-cream flavour...

Mix It: They mix in your choice of lollies, chocolate, fruit & nuts.

Smash It: They smash the mix-ins into your ice-cream.

Love It: You enjoy it!

Both kids got to choose a flavour of ice-cream and a mix. Of course, they both wanted Gummi Bears. I reminded them that we were there to save the poor little, juicy, delicious, fruity flavoured Gummi Bears, so they had to choose something else.

Decisions, decisions…

With the Cookie Dough only 50c during the Save the Gummi Bears promotional period, we decided that was a good choice.

The ice-cream smasher/mixer guy did his thing on the cold rock.

Very cool to watch and it inspired Sam to want to come home and slop ice-cream around on the kitchen bench… Umm… yeah… nah.

Amelia, chose Cookies n Cream plus Cookie Dough mix-in.

Sam opted for Choc Mint plus Cookie Dough mix-in.

And as I got to have a few spoonful's of both, I thought they were both yummy!


What is your favourite ice-cream flavour?

What do you like top or mix into your ice-cream?


Cold Rock Ice Creamery is a part of the Franchised Food Company. For those wanting to be their own boss, it couldn't get much better than having an ice-cream shop! After all, it is Amelia’s dream job.

  1. I really need an icecream fix right about now . No chance of it though .

    1. Did you manage to get your hands on some ice-cream Trish?

  2. Oh yum! I wish there was a Cold Rock Store in our small town!

  3. I haven't tried Cold Rock before, might have to give it a whirl! I'm impressed that your two lovely littlies could eat ice-cream and not have the evidence all over their faces - my two sons always had as much on their face and shirt as they did in their mouth! My favourite flavour? I like to have a waffle cone with a scoop of Boysenberry Ripple topped with one of English Toffee. Mmmm, now I feel like ice-cream!

  4. Chocolate - the darker the better! Additives? Oh, all right, if I must: chocolate chips ( the darker the better)!

  5. Yumm all that ice cream some time very hard to pick which one to pick. I like any with nuts in it or rum and raisin's.

  6. The kids love cold rock! Such a great date night idea!

  7. mmm yummy i love bubble gum its the best flavour i crave this in summer

  8. I would really love to try Cold Rock. It sounds awesome.
