‘225 Dine:’ Freezing Cow brings rolled ice cream to Baton Rouge

    You’ve probably seen pictures of rolled ice cream online, but now Baton Rouge residents can finally try it.

    Freezing Cow opened its doors last week in the Bluebonnet Village Shopping Center. The company has roots in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but now has five locations throughout the United States. With the Baton Rouge location being the first in Louisiana, 225 Dine went out for a taste test.

    Freezing Cow has 18 flavors and more than 40 topping options. The ice cream liquid is poured onto metal slabs chilled to 23 degrees below zero and mixed with toppings by the “ice cream artists.” Then they spread the ice cream into a thin layer, roll it into perfect cylinders and arrange it in a cup with more toppings.

    Presentation is everything for Freezing Cow’s sundaes.

    “I ended up trying (read: devouring) three flavors,” writes 225’s Devon Sanders. “The first was a chocolate ice cream mixed with brownies, Oreos and chocolate chips, then drizzled with chocolate sauce. I was initially surprised with the level of creaminess the ice cream brought for being frozen so quickly.”

    Sanders also tried Freezing Cow’s green tea and strawberry flavors.  

    “I left with a new level of appreciation for the skill used to make rolled ice cream, which Freezing Cow proved can be both delicious and aesthetically pleasing,” Sanders writes.

    Freezing Cow, 7514 Bluebonnet Blvd., is open from noon to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and noon to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
