Sometimes, you just have to find something that will satisfy your sweet tooth. If you’re in Austin, few options compare to the Cold Cookie Company. Its selection of unique combinations are a fun new way to try ice cream and cookies.
It is a food truck, which we found on a corner near the University of Texas campus. Upwards of ten or twelve trucks often can be found at this location; Cold Cookie Company is usually one of the most popular, especially in the evening.
If you’re interested in something more cookie-heavy, you can custom order a sandwich with any flavor of ice cream stuffed between two huge homemade cookies of your choice. I went with a chocolate chip cookie sandwich with bright lavender Birthday Cake ice cream in the middle, topped with M&M’s and a drizzle of peanut butter. INCREDIBLE. The cookies are soft and fresh, and the ice cream is creamy and smooth. Combined with the toppings I requested, it is a unique and satisfying dessert.
If ice cream is your preferred base, don’t miss one of the amazing milkshakes. With an entire cookie blended into it, a cookies and cream shake is a sweet and rich remake of a classic milkshake flavor. An extra-thick straw allows you to get those delicious unblended chunks of cookie at the bottom, and to top it all off, you get a SECOND whole cookie as a garnish to the shake.
Finally, you can keep it old school and simply order your favorite ice cream flavor with toppings, and of course, a cookie. A layer of Reese’s Pieces atop some of the softest Vanilla Bean ice cream I’ve ever tried was the perfect combination. Top it off with a fresh, whole Cookie Monster cookie, and you’ve got a treat that checks all the boxes.
The Cold Cookie Company offers fun combinations that open up a whole new door for ice cream and cookies. If you’re looking to get out of the house for something sweet, I suggest you skip the ordinary fro-yo shop and instead satisfy your craving with one of these incredible creations.
