Introducing Cold Rock’s Egg-cellent Easter Egg Cups
This Easter, Cold Rock Ice Creamery have created a limited edition Easter treat that takes indulgence to a whole eggs-tra level. Introducing the Cold Rock Easter Egg Cup – an entirely edible Chocolatier chocolate egg filled with Cold Rock Ice Cream and Mix Ins!
Partnering with Australian chocolate connoisseur Chocolatier, customers first choose their favourite flavour of smooth, creamy ice cream and then any three Mix Ins from Cold Rock’s chocolate, confectionary and fruit range.
Next, the delicious combination is mixed and smashed together, right before your very eyes, on Cold Rock’s unique frozen granite slab. Usually, the ice cream confection would then be scooped into a standard cone or paper cup, but this Easter your Cold Rock creation can be scooped into a hollow half Chocolatier Easter Egg! Yes, the entire chocolate Easter Egg Cup is edible!
Of course, the other egg-citing part of the process is selecting just which Cold Rock Combo will fill your Easter Egg Cup. Will you be choc hoppy with Double Choc ice cream mixed with chocolate hot fudge sauce, chocolate brownie and a Cadbury Freddo Frog? Or crack with tradition by choosing something choc-free, such as Strawberry ice cream with raspberries, strawberries and gummy bears?
The choice is entirely yours.
The best bit is that you can purchase this egg-cellent Easter delight for only $8.90 from all Cold Rock locations. Customers need to hop to it though, as the promotion is only available in store from 5th March – 2nd April 2018, or while stocks last.

Its new Loaded Shake range challenges thirsty Australians to create their own destiny, by choosing their favourite flavour of ice cream and loading it full of Mix In’s.
The real challenge comes when you attempt to suck it through the straw. Cold Rock will give you a head start, mixing in and smashing your ice cream for you on its specialty-frozen granite slab, essentially the “Cold Rock”. They will then create your Loaded Shake right before your eyes! It is a performance that would make Broadway proud.

Stan Gordon speaks out about rent wages killing food retailers
Our Managing Director Stan Gordon speaks out regarding the high rent wages in shopping centres killing food retailers.
Crazy rents. Relentlessly increasing utilities. Unaffordable penalty wages. How can retailers survive in an environment where their rent and overhead costs far outweigh their profitability?
I am outraged that the rise of rents in some shopping centres have, yet again, seen yet another victim in SumoSalad. This story is becoming all too common — a negative trend we’re seeing affecting businesses far too often. To attract and keep successful retailers in business, exorbitant shopping centre rents and staff penalty wages must drop!
And landlords should become responsible for their unconscionable behaviour. At Franchised Food Company, we have just recently been given an ultimatum to accept base occupancy costs in excess of 50% (when our sector should be a maximum of 18% – 20%). We walked away, resulting in yet another retail outlet closing, and some poor sucker being set up for damnation. Simply put it set the retailer up for failure … and they know it!

Move over Mother’s Day cards!
Cold Rock says: Let Mum have her Cake, and eat it too!
We all know that Mother’s Day is THE day to celebrate the leading lady in your life – Mum. And it’s probably also true that no gift will ever be quite enough to repay her for everything she’s done for you.
Of course, if you could buy her the world, you would. But, chances are, most of us can’t afford that. So instead, why not give her a delicious ice cream cake which you can both enjoy and also firmly cements your ‘favourite child’ status at the same time?
This Mother’s Day, the team at Cold Rock are offering you the perfect opportunity to do just that. Their Eat Your Feelings range of ice cream cakes are inscribed with a range of ‘mum friendly’ messages which are sure to put a smile on her face – and a halo on your head.
While your siblings will undoubtedly make do with the usual fluffy dressing gowns, daggy flannelette pj’s and soap-on-a-rope offerings, with Cold Rock’s help, you can create Mum her very own mum-inspired masterpiece, using her (or your!) favourite ice cream flavours, mixed and smashed together with your choice of premium chocolate, confectionary and fruit Mix Ins.
And to top it all off – don’t forget to wrap it all up with your choice of decorations and a personalised message of love inscribed on top, just to remind her of the great job she’s done. Perhaps “To Mum, love your favourite child”, or “Congrats Mum…I’m perfect” will do the trick?
With cakes starting at just $40, this custom-made, cost effective, super tasty option is the perfect way to show Mum just how much you love her, without even having to get your hands dirty.
So set yourself a calendar note (Pssst…Mother’s Day is on Sunday, 14 May, 2017) and order your mum a Cold Rock Mother’s Day ice cream cake she definitely won’t forget; www.coldrock.com.au/cake-builder/.
