Treat yourself to a whole new world of ice cream! Imagine running an ice cream shop without any freezers in sight! Yep! That’s right, absolutely no freezers! This is because Sub Zero Ice Cream “flash freezes” custom-mixed orders with liquid nitrogen.
For those who are not familiar with flash freezing, it is what makes the ice cream itself smoother and creamier simply due to the water not forming from large ice crystals. Not only is the ice cream to die for, but so are the prices! Each order of ice cream comes in a cup with a waffle bowl, and 2 scoops are the ice cream of your choosing, all for under $5!
The ‘Chocolate w/ Brownie Bites/Chocolate Flakes’ is a fan favorite! Another fan favorite would be the ‘Birthday Cake Capacitor’ loaded with cake batter and cookie dough bites topped with fudge and sprinkles! All that goodness and flavor for $5! See what all the hype is about over nitrogen ice cream! It truly makes a difference, a great one at that! An easy choice for our list of the best Ice Cream in Overland Park!
