Let’s be clear, its not just ice cream. Cold Rock is something else entirely. It’s about fun, imagination and endless variety. Who ever heard of a milo cookie dough ice cream? Our trained crew (we call them Cold Rockers) can mix and smash up your flavourful creation on our very own Cold Rock – a frozen granite slab. With the ability to create over 10 million combinations of ice cream by mixing chocolates, candies, cakes, fruits or nuts into your choice of our super premium ice cream, low fat ice cream or sorbet, Cold Rock has taken ice cream to a new level. Back in 1996, Selwyn Barr, a bloke from Queensland Australia loved mixing, smashing and coming up with his own ice cream creations in his kitchen. In fact, he had so much fun that many scoops of ice cream later, Cold Rock Ice Creamery was born. From the beginning, Selwyn envisioned ice cream to be about fun, imagination and variety. Lucky for us, fast forward 11 years and 60 stores later, Cold Rock Ice Creamery is here to rock Singapore.

Light and tasty.
I've never tried this place before. So after a long day of shopping, my friend insisted that we'd give this place a try. There were so many flavours available, me and my friend had a really really hard time trying to choose a flavour. After five minutes, we finally settled for a Caramel and peppermint one.
Surprisingly, the ice cream was rather light. It wasn't as heavy and creamy as most ice creams that I have tasted, which leave you feeling guilty after eating it. Also, the serving was really generous, we paid about 5 dollars for two scoops of ice cream. It was so good, there was literally not a single drop of ice cream left in our cup!!
Ready to choose!
Unlike other ice-cream shop (from my observation) like Marble Slab, Gelato... Cold Rock has provided fixed combination of ice-cream flavours! We (my cousin and I) didn't have a tough time choosing the combi we wish to indulge in.
For a small cup, it was enough for us to share. Well it's either we have a small appetite or the serving was pretty big for a small size. The best part is we're able to watch how the ice-cream combi was made! With just 2 metal blades and some skills, our Cookie Crumble is born! which I must say, is heavenly.
However, the seats were limited. We went to the outlet at Somerset 313 and Cold Rock was located in the middle, between shops. Atmosphere wise was not up to satisfaction since the place is an open concept. Passer-by staring at us eating ice-cream is not what I call privacy. Seats are limited too and I'm referring to the comfortable seats. Besides that, we love the ice-cream!
Indeed, I like watching the process of mixing the ice cream. It seems like cooking! It is a less common practice in the ice cream stores, and rather a fascinating sight. I do expect the novelty to wear off if you frequent the store.
The taste of the ice cream is not fantastic, and I would expect more for its price actually. To compensate for its taste, you can at least have your ice cream in its air conditioned store to avoid the heat outside.
A decent place for a hangout, but I am not really attracted to this particular ice cream store. The mixing of ice cream can be said to be unique but the taste does not come out special or extra wonderful. Disappointing for the price paid.
Who gets the prime seat wins!
The best part about having desserts at Cold Rock in Holland Village is that we will challenge for the prime seat, which is a table for two with swings attached to the ceilings as seats. Though it doesn't really matter which corner of the store we get to enjoy the ice-cream, everybody secretly wants to feel like a Queen to get that spot since it is the only spot that is specially designed and it became the signature factor for the creamery.
Cold Rock ice-cream can never taste any better. They have a vast range of mash-ups - even when you think it is a weird combination but it somehow blends well together and in fact tastes really good and different. I love how Cold Rock can come up with intriguing menus that aren't available in most creameries.
big no bro.
They have good service. They have good ambience (be it the one at 313 or HV). You could sit there and chill for hours. I spent hours there (313). I like the swing in HV. The only thing I don't like is: THE ICECREAM!!!!
I remember it wasn't that bad when I first tried the one at HV years back. Recently I went to the one at 313 and I was really excited about choosing the flavours. STuck with the safer ones- chocolate and.. mint or something.
When I sunk my teeth into the icecream, disappointment washed over me. IS THAT WALLS I TASTE?!?! Not to say that walls tastes bad but really, cold rocks tastes like.. a normal icecream you can get from the uncle ringing his bell with the pushcart.
I like it! But only at Holland Village.
I love their Holland Village outlet - it has a variety of flavours, and who can forget their swing? I have a sweet tooth and most of their flavours appeal to me, whether it's peanut butter, butterscotch, bubblegum, or the classic chocolate. I also love being able to choose my mix-ins and have them mash everything up. For some unfathomable reason, it tastes really good, even if you didn't think they would work together at all. I will almost always visit Cold Rock when I'm at Holland Village.
Sadly, I can't say the same for their outlet at [email protected] The flavours available were painfully limited, and last I went, their display freezer was spoiled so there were even less flavours available. Visit the one at Holland Village, if you must.
too pricey and too sweet
I went to the holland V outlet, and to start with the good comments first, i loved the ambience at cold rock. The place was bright and welcoming, modern and spacey. Nice place to just chill with your friends.
What I didn't like at all was the ice cream. I loved the idea of being able to choose whatever mix-ins i want. And mind you, there is a huge variety of mix-ins. I had toffee and cookie dough on a vanilla base. I was really excited when i saw my ice cream being tossed around and mixed, expecting it to taste like Ben n Jerry's chocolate chip cookie dough except with toffee instead.
however, i was very disappointed. I'm a huge vanilla fan and the vanilla ice cream wasn't good. I couldn't taste the vanilla, and it tasted more like sweet cream. The ice cream was also not rich enough, a far cry from the hagen-daz outlet nearby at holland v. The mix-ins didn't go well with the ice cream. My ice cream didn't have any taste of toffee or cookie dough. it might as well just have been toppings instead of mix-ins.
Also, i remember paying at least 7 dollars for what i bought. I didn't even finish my ice cream. It was cloyingly sweet and i figured i might as well not waste my calories on it. perhaps i just chose the wrong things to order, but i probably wouldn't go back again anyway.
“An ice cream shop that will surprise me with its creative and unique creation.” That was my expectation of this shop before I went to try it out. No doubt that I was truly curious about their creation when I was looking at the menu and trying to decide which creation to try out. The descriptions and the wide range of flavours available had indeed impressed me. Thus, I held high expectation
However, I’m truly disappointed after I tried as it didn’t really match up to my expectation. I chose the ‘bubble gum”’ favour as I thought that it’s quite interesting and I’ve never tried such favour before. Yes, it does taste like bubble gum. But, beside that, there isn’t anything special about it. I initially thought the texture would be more “chewy” but it turns out to be quite soft and I got pretty sick of the taste after finishing it. I tried the chocolate cookie dough too. It wasn’t as good as what I expected though. I guess it’s the texture of the ice cream that disappoints me most.
Maybe if I would have different opinion if I tried other favours instead. But, after this experience, I think I’ll think twice before buying.
Cold rock lovin'
I am not really a fan of ice-cream, cakes and other desserts in general. But, when I was in Australia last May, I fell head over heels in love with Cold Rock Creamery. I particularly love chocolate-based ice cream so I usually go for cookies & cream, hazelnut, dark chocolate etc. Their most interesting ice cream flavor would be bubble gum ice cream! Where else do you have such a flavor?
But, I particularly like Cold Rock due to the mixing of toppings. Usually, most ice cream parlours would just sprinkle the topping on the top of your scoop of ice cream. Cold rock, however, adds the topping inside the ice cream by mixing and smashing the ice cream on their granite slab. To note, there easily have about 20 different topping options, from marshmallows to chocolate chips to M & Ms to even gummi bears. I usually add Maltesers topping in my ice-cream. Apart from just the normal scoop of ice cream, you can choose to have your ice cream in a waffle biscuit or as with banana as a banana split. You will seriously be spoilt for choice when you see their ice cream display, I assure you.
So far, they have 3 outlets in Singapore.
