Cream Ice Cream Review

Cream Ice Cream Shop Review

Whenever we travel I like to try dessert places.  So when we went to California in July on a quick trip to adopt two kitties I looked up some places to try in Chico and Torrance where we would be stopping.  In Chico I wanted to check out Cream and The Cookie Shoppe and in Torrance, Cuppies.

I picked Cream   because it was close to our hotel, I love ice cream and the ice cream taco looked super yummy!  The Cookie Shoppe because the reviews said these were the best cookies and some of them sounded delicious.  I'm not a big cookie fan but this place was close to our hotel and I wanted to try the Judy, the Zephyr and the Flying Squirrel.

I only picked one place in Torrance to check out because we would have just picked up the cats.  Some of the flavors I waned to try at Cuppies were Soda Pop Shop, Payday, Hot Cakes n Bacon and Watermelon.

While I was looking forward to trying all three places we only made it to Cream.  The Cookie Shoppe was closed the day we rolled into Chico so we planned to hit it on the way back through.

7 1/2 drive to Torrance and I was ready for some cupcakes. I was going to pick up some cupcakes first and than pick up the new kitties we were adopting from Kitt Crusaders.   But my husband put the address to the foster kitty house into the Garmin so we decided to just go pick up the cats, head to the hotel and spend some time with the cats.

Meet Austin and Healey. They did amazing in the car! Two 7 1/2 hour  days and they were seriously the best car cats ever.

We left Torrance at 5:30 a.m. to head to Chico which is 7 1/2 hours away. Cuppies was not open that early so no cupcakes for me :(

When we arrived back into Chico I really thought we'd check into the hotel, leave the cats in the room with my man and I'd go get us some food and cookies.  But after driving all day I just wanted to spend time with the cats.

So how was Cream?  Lets review.

I wanted to try the ice cream taco.  A waffle cone taco shell filled with 3 scoops of ice cream flavors of your choice and fun toppings to choose from. I had planned on getting Royal Caramel Swirl,
Cin-Ful Churro and Coconut and top it with Fruity Pebbles and whipped cream.  Hello sugar rush!

Sadly I didn't get my ice cream taco. The lady in front of us got the last ice cream taco.  So I settled for a scoop of Royal Caramel Swirl.  I was so disappointed I forgot to get my Fruity Pebbles and whipped cream topping.  I mean, I just drove 7 1/2 hours to try this ice cream taco.  Really the trip was to pick up the kitties in Torrance but ya know. I really wanted that ice cream taco!

If you've tried any of these places- Cream, The Cookie Shoppe or Cuppies leave me a comment and let me know.
