New Shop Offers Free Ice Cream

A new CREAM ice cream sandwich shop has opened in the College Area near the SDSU campus




    A brand-new ice cream shop is celebrating its grand opening in San Diego by offering free sweet treats all day Friday.

    CREAM – a San Francisco-based dessert franchise known for its delectable ice cream sandwiches – has just opened its first San Diego location at 5157 College Ave. near San Diego State University.

    To celebrate, the shop is giving away free ice cream sandwiches from noon to midnight.

    Long lines are expected for the cool confections. Thousands of CREAM fans recently waited in line for their free ice cream sandwiches at the openings of new stores in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

    The menu at CREAM includes fresh baked cookies in 20 flavors such as red velvet, double chocolate chip and lemon heaven. Ice cream flavors – also 20 on the list – include banana walnut fudge, pistachio delight and royal caramel swirl, just to name a few. The menu also includes lots of sweet toppings, plus “The CREAM Taco,” a taco shell-shaped cone stuffed with three flavors of ice cream and two toppings of your choice.

    CREAM is headquartered in Millbrae, California. The name of the company is an acronym for “Cookies Rule Everything Around Me.” Currently, there are 11 CREAM locations operating throughout California and Nevada.
