Cold Rock: A smashing success!

It’s so simple and a no brainer and you wonder why we havent thought to do this with all ice cream sooner.  You simply choose your flavour of ice cream (it’s always a difficult choice between butterscotch, cookies and cream and all the usual standard flavours), choose your cone or tub, and choose your add-ons (you can see in this pic but its filled with Flake, Tim Tams, Peanut Butter puffs and Nerds).   All of that is smashed together and scopped into your tub or cone!  Impossible not to enjoy!
