Cool Off With a Frozen Treat in College Station

Cool Off With a Frozen Treat in College Station

The summer heat is no joke here in Texas. On sweltering days, the best way to cool off is to indulge in a frozen treat.

There are endless ice cream options near our College Station, TX apartments to choose from. Here are three that will cool you down and leave you wanting seconds.  

Marble Slab Creamery

Near Texas A&M, this creamery specializes in hand-mixed creations of small-batch ice cream. The toppings are seemingly endless and you can pair them with the flavor combo of your choice and watch as your ice cream gets mixed on a chilled marble slab. With yummy flavors like cotton candy or red velvet cake, there's truly something for everyone. If ice cream isn't on your mind then try a shake or smoothie and if you need something a little bigger - then take home an ice cream cake.  

Freezing Cow Rolling Ice Cream

Forget scooping your ice cream, rolling is the new thing and at Freezing Cow, they really know how to keep you coming back for more. Key lime pie and Dirty Mint are just a few of their unique flavors. There's a process here too - pick your ice cream flavors, mix-ins, and toppings and then watch in awe as they freeze your flavors and roll them up into perfect servings just for you. Inside, everything is brightly colored and employees serve with a smile.  

JJ's Snowcones

On those blazing hot days, the best option is to go with shaved ice. JJ's Snowcones has over 50 flavors! From watermelon to Fireball, there's something for every taste bud. You can stay classic or ask for toppings too. JJ's has been open for over 30 years and people love to pick up a cone and sit outside at a picnic table.   Contact us today to see how you can enjoy being a Rise at Northgate resident, and all the perks that come with it!
