Let the good times roll at Frozen Rolls Creamery.

By Sarah Shea

I think I have a new favorite type of ice cream: rolled. Watching the process of rolled ice cream at Frozen Rolls Creamery was a lot more interesting than I imagined. The ice cream starts out runny and then solidifies as its tossed and rolled around on the negative twenty-one-degree metal surface. The toppings you choose (there’s over twenty to choose from btw) are literally rolled up in the ice cream of your choice, making every bite magical, or in my case, fruity pebble licious.

My dreams came true the moment I took the first bite of my “over the rainbow” creation. The perfect combination of fruity pebbles, ube ice cream, hot fudge, and strawberries. One of my favorite things about Frozen Rolls Creamery was how cold the ice cream was served. You can take your time eating it and even enjoy a game of battleship like the couple that was sitting next to me. It comes out perfectly frozen, not too hard to put your spoon in (which changes color by temperature) and not too soft as to start melting quickly after receiving it. It’s the ideal sweet treat to grab and bring home or stay and eat while playing some old-school board games. They have a super cute outdoor patio, and a charming, yet simple aesthetic on the inside that had me wanting to come back next time with my laptop for a study session.

But okay, back to the sweet stuff. They have a variety of ice cream flavors and some even have a dairy-free option. The seasonal flavors at the moment are stroopwaffle, mint chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, taro, and cold brew Columbian coffee (which I’m definitely coming back to try). I was also very impressed by their fresh fruit that is delivered weekly to the store.

I’m a huge strawberry fan and I was not at all disappointed by the freshness and taste of their strawberries. They also have more interesting toppings for those who don’t favor the crossover of ice cream and fruit; toppings like cotton candy sprinkles, Pocky Sticks, cupcake bites, and so many more. And if you’re feeling up to it, they can put your sweet rolled cream in a crispy taco waffle cone. Your childhood memories of the Choco Taco are back and better than ever at Frozen Rolls Creamery

I enjoyed my visit to Frozen Rolls Creamery and I will most certainly be back. I now prefer my ice cream rolled and I’m looking forward to creating more delicious desserts at Frozen Rolls Creamery. Make sure to give them a visit the next time you’re in the mood for something sweet. They’re located at 704 N Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78703. Let the good times roll.
