Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

This summer, look for Cold Stone Creamery to get a little freaky with their ingredients.

This month, as part of their Gold Cone Collection, the super-premium ice cream maker introduced their Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Ice Cream, which is made up of lemon ice cream sprinkled with real poppy seeds. The combination is supposed to imitate the flavor of a lemon poppy seed muffin.

Oh, but the unusual ingredients don’t stop there. In July, Cold Stone will offer Strawberry Basil ice cream. And, in August, they’ll serve up a non-alcoholic Mojito Sorbet.

But what about June? Meh, it’s just some boring Chocolate Hazelnut. Personally, it would’ve been better if it was Chocolate Hazelwort.

A small (or “Like It”) serving of Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Ice Cream has 340 calories 18 grams of fat, 12 grams of saturated fat, 160 milligrams of sodium, 42 grams of carbohydrates, 36 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein. A small Strawberry Basil Ice cream has 320 calories 18 grams of fat, 12 grams of saturated fat, 80 milligrams of sodium, 38 grams of carbohydrates, 33 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein. Finally, a Like It serving of Mojito Sorbet has 190 calories, 2 grams of fat, 1 grams of saturated fat, 0 milligrams of sodium, 46 grams of carbohydrates, 44 grams of sugar, and 0 grams of protein.

All Gold Cone Collection flavors are available for a limited time at Cold Store Creamery locations nationwide.

    Basil is an awful flavor in sorbets and ice creams. No idea why they would go this route.

    Tried the Lemon Poppyseed over the weekend… not good. It’s got an oddly bitter taste too it, very harsh with little-to-no sweetness. Thankfully they still had Peach Iced Tea from last month, so I grabbed that instead.
