Liquid nitrogen freezes milk crystals at -321 degrees Fahrenheit, creating the most indulgent and creamy ice cream possible—and this scientific feat will happen daily at the Valley’s newest ice cream shop, Creamistry, tentatively scheduled to open July 11 in the Uptown Plaza at Central Avenue and Camelback Road.
To celebrate, the new store will offer several grand opening specials: July 18-21, buy one ice cream treat, get one of equal or lesser value free; July 22, 50-percent off of the day’s sales will benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital; and July 23, a free ice cream giveaway from 12-2 p.m. Receive a free single ice cream treat.
Two Valley entrepreneurs, former Arizona Cardinal and co-founder of Impact Church Andre Wadsworth and real estate expert Ryan Zeleznak, have joined forces to open more than 20 locations of the California-based franchise over the next five years.
Creamistry has a unique take on creating the perfect ice cream treat. Customers choose a size or specialty (ranging from shakes to floats to waffle bowls and more); then an ice cream base (including premium organic, Greek yogurt, non-dairy, vegan and gluten free options including sorbet and coconut milk); one of nearly 40 flavors (ranging from birthday cake to sea salt caramel to Madagascar vanilla bean or blood orange sorbet); and finally toppings (candy, fruit, nuts, cookies/cake). Everything is mixed with liquid nitrogen for a smoky and satisfying visual showcase, complete in just about two minutes.
In addition to ice cream, sweet treat lovers can choose from layered parfaits, shakes, floats, affogatos, chocolate bowls, waffle bowls and brownie bowls.
Creamistry will be open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information, visit www.creamistry.com.
