Very creative ice cream inventions highlighted by their Nitrogen drama whereby, unlike Coldstone, the ice cream is in liquid form and then chilled in a super cold manner to produce a real creamy blend. Toppings and add-ins are applied and voila! Try it!

The cool thing was specialties, are unique. However our order didn’t come out like what was pictured. As for the taste eh…like ice cream. Nothing spectacular. A bit pricey!!!🙄

I don't know if the liquid nitrogen thing is just a gimmick or if it makes the ice cream better. Either way, the ice cream is great and watching them make it with the liquid nitrogen is really cool. Also, the credit card system went...down and we didn't have cash. Since they already made our ice cream, we ended up getting it free. Can't be that. We appreciate the manager being understanding under stressful circumstances.More

Excellent ice cream with delicious fixings. Great selection of flavors. Nice entertainment, watching the nitrogen do it thing. Not cheap, but worth it.

The Creamistry uses nitrogen to to freeze it's ice cream. It's definitely very fun to watch - the kids in the shop's excitement was contagious. I had ice cream and a milk shake. The ice cream was deliciously creamy and stayed cold for long,long time...in the Houston heat. The milkshake was not as remarkable for me. I asked for a cone but got a cup, so I guess there are/were none on offer. Cool experience in a cute shop.More

We are three people who went to Creamistry. Including tip, I spent $30. The ice cream was so bad two of us could not eat our ice cream. I asked to exchange only one of the two, and the workers said that I could not....They offered to let me buy another one for 50% off, which I declined. When I asked to speak to the manager, they told me to call a phone number. Then they changed their mind, and one of them went into the back to talk to a manager to see if I could have an exchange. Unfortunately, the person then returned to me after 5 minutes of speaking to a “hiding manager” and said the manager was not in the back. She gave me the phone number. I highly recommend that you not go to this place. If you do go, I recommend not tipping the service.More

We come here occasionally, because it’s a little more pricey than the usual ice cream places. We love the options, the vegan based milks, all the toppings, and of course the nitrogen. The kids love seeing the steam coming from the freezing process. It can...get busy on the weekends, so be expected to wait. Love the captain crunch, salty caramel, and I get the coconut milk with fresh strawberries. They all taste so creamy and delicious.More

The ice cream was good but it's more of an experience. They don't make such a big deal of it but you can. This is an excellent place for people who might have allergies to dairy. They are easy to find, near the Nordstrom Rack...in a shopping center. Parking is close and restrooms are available. They do have some tables and chairs outside.More

It is a good experience to try the icecream here. It seems to me that it is a bit healthier than normal icecream because I can choose its base as I want. I picked cashew milk as icecream base with milk coffee flavor. It was...very nice and creamy although it was not full cream milk, someone said it is like this because of the special prepare technique. It is good to try but I think it is a bit expensive.More

When I first started this review it was 2 days ago. The name, the idea and the ice cream are excellent. So, we had ice cream Thursday night and then Friday night. We went back two nights in a row. What does this say about...the ice cream? It is Saturday morning and I want to already go back. I wonder if there is a diet program with this ice cream? Delicious, tasty and creamy.More
