ColdShack

4070 N Belt Line Rd Suite 113, Irving, TX

ColdShack

Hand-rolled ice creams are a thing and you’ve probably seen them all over instagram by now. They are denser yet just as decadent as traditional ice creams. What we also love about them is their mixed-in toppings (from Kit Kats, to lychee and Pocky cracker sticks!), the variety of sauces, and the fact that they make pretty photos!
