Cliche Alert!! Better late than never! Anyway, let's just get started... So last May 23, 2013, a sneak-peak preview for the media was held at the First Cold Stone Creamery store in Serendra. I'll explain what happened through photos and captions. :)
Can I just say that the interior of their store is really very beautiful? Kudos to whoever designed this!
Just look at how packed the place was! Everyone was excited to get their hands on their Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream and personally feel the ultimate ice cream experience.
Cold Stone Creamery is very different from the regular ice cream shops that you'll find in our country. They have 20 flavors that are made fresh daily, they have very fun mix-ins and they do their magic on a granite stone that is 15 degrees Fahrenheit in temperature! And yes, that's where they got their name! Cool, huh?
Their crew can sing and dance! They actually had an American Idol-ish kind of audition. Hahaha. And they can do all these tossing and flipping with the ice cream. Additional point to the Cold Stone Creamery Team!!
Mr. Michael McGill is the President of International at Kahala, where Cold Stone Creamery is a subsidiary of one of the fastest growing franchising companies in the world.
The ribbon cutting ceremony was led by Mr. Michael McGill (Leftmost) and he was joined by ice cream enthusiast Sabrina Co, Canadian Ambassador Christopher Thornley, US Embassy’s Senior Commercial Service Officer Jim McCarthy, Gretchen Barretto, Boy Abunda and Karylle, along with Arizona Ice Cream COO Yuki Rosenfeld.
And of course, the event was attended by celebrities including:
1. Vicky Morales, RJ Ledesma and Vanessa Ledesma
2. Singer Amber Davis and DJ/Music Producer Marcus Davis
3. Valerie Bondoc with David and Mai Kauffman and their kids.
4. Rambo Nunez, Luis Alandy, Julz Savard and Eri Neeman
5. Karylle, Gretchen Barretto and Boy Abunda
6. Lyxen and Benjie Paras with their kids.
And this is my favorite part, Anthony Pangilinan, Karylle and Yael tested their catching skills! And they all caught their ice creams on their first try! Great job! :)

And now let's talk about their delicious, creamy and mouth-watering ice cream! But hey, the photo speaks for itself! So, no need to explain! Hahaha.
Cold Stone Creamery is now open at its first location in Serendra, Bonifacio Global City Taguig with telephone number (02) 846-0460. The second location will soon be opening in the Mall of Asia.
Another one for the books. And again, I wasn't there to do my "blogger duties". I was a part of the PR Team under Ms. Rochelle Romero! Fun, fun night!
