First I thought I liked Cold Stone. I do, but then I started liking Maggie Moo’s. Then I tried Marble Slab. I’m now a card carrying, mildly obsessed, junkie for the “experience” these guys bring when I walk through the door. And I’ve already redeemed a freebie card with no fluctuation to that experience. These places are basically the same. Premium ice cream with “stuff” folded in on a “slab” (the counter), while you watch. The items you can choose (stuff) vary somewhat, but it’s your basic oreo crumbs, heath, nuts, jimmies, etc. and each place has wonderful waffle cones and waffle cone cups. I’m sure there are bright energetic crews working at various Cold Stone and MM locations (there are many locations), but the people working at Marble Slab in Kentlands have a lot more on the ball than the folks I’ve encountered in their competitor’s shops in the area. The ice cream seemed a lot better here also. Maybe it was the “experience” that made it so great? You be the judge! 🙂 (via Shawn H. on Yelp)
While driving up Nicholson Lane late a few nights ago, I had a late evening ice cream craving. I remembered a great place just over the hill and to the right. I made the move. It was gone. Not closed. Empty. Out of business!
A sad day in ice cream history for sure. (via Shawn H. on Yelp)
