Cold Cookie Company
Review by: Sara Griffith
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.
