The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Cold Stone Creamery, Tokyo

Three journal entries in less than two days! Can you tell that I'm in a bit of a frenzy to get as much of my blogging done as I can whilst I still have the time before baby's arrival?

After our lunch on Sunday with my parents in Roppongi Hills, we decided to head to the Cold Stone Creamery for dessert. There is always a long queue outside this shop, even on a relatively chilly autumn afternoon. The ice cream is a tad bit on the pricey side, but I love the waffle cone and Rob loves the ice cream (we have a complementary thing happening with ice cream in cones). My mum was especially keen to have ice cream for dessert, which was a bit surprising because she's always claimed not to have a sweet tooth. There's plenty to choose from the menu, but you can also have your very own custom creations using the large variety of ice cream flavours and mix-ins available. We kept it simple and ordered from their Signature Creations. We got the Coffee Lovers (coffee ice cream, roasted almonds, Heath bar and caramel) in a plain waffle cone (extra 60yen) for my parents, and the Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip (mint ice cream, chocolate chips, brownie and fudge) in a chocolate waffle cone (extra 120yen) for ourselves, both in the "Love It" serving size (610yen each). It was sooooo yummy, and that's all I'll say about it.

Choices, choices:

The staff sing for tips! Here's a couple of the girls making our order on the cold stone:

And they will happily oblige videos and photos too - cute girls with good voices who are happy to pose are always good for sales; our Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip before Rob's eager mouth:
