Marble Slab

Marble Slab is easily one of my favorite places for a snack. About 3 years ago I was introduced to Marble Slab, and have not looked back.
Marble Slab is a gourmet ice cream shop. There are over 20 different flavors of ice cream, along with over 20 different mixings for you to chose from. This leads to endless combination of awesomeness.
Last night I went to Marble Slab for my first ice cream experience of the spring. I was welcomed to the goodness that I have come to love. My snack last night was a scoop of peanut butter and a scoop of chocolate swiss ice cream with chunks of cookie dough, and graham crackers. Healthy I know, but man was it good!
This morning I found a little blurp on Marble Slab and who the company was created.

Marble Slab Creamery began its story in Houston, Texas in 1983. We started with an unusually high set of standards and a goal to bring the exquisite taste of fresh-made gourmet ice cream to fellow aficionados. This dedication led to our development of the now famous “frozen slab” technique for ice cream preparation. Today we have stores in 35 states, along with locations in Canada, Puerto Rico, and The United Arab Emirates.

With a chef-driven vision, we’ve made sure every batch of our super premium ice cream is created with loving care right in-store. We hand roll and bake our waffle cones on-site. For mixins, we offer some of the freshest fruits, the finest nuts, the sweetest candies and the most delicious cookies available. So whatever you order, you can be sure it’s fresh and filled with fabulous flavor.

The Marble Slab Creamery experience starts when you enter one of our stores and are immediately greeted by the aroma of our freshly-baked waffle cones, available in a variety of flavors ranging from Vanilla Cinnamon to Dark Chocolate with Butterfinger®.

Then comes the moment of choice—discovering which one of our delicious, homemade, ice cream flavors is perfect for you. Will it be a traditional favorite such as Sweet Cream, Chocolate Swiss or Strawberry? Or perhaps a more unique flavor like Cheesecake, Chocolate Amaretto or Butter Pecan?

Once your desired flavor has been selected, the magic begins. We scoop the ice cream onto a frozen marble slab, where your choice of fruits, nuts and candies, known as Marble Slab Creamery "mixins," will be skillfully blended in with the ice cream, then finally piled high on the delectable waffle cone of your choosing. The result is your very own, one-of-a-kind dessert. From there, repeat as desired, which will probably be often.

It isn’t just dessert. It’s the world’s freshest ice cream, made just the way you like it, just when you want it. Create your experience today.

I highly encourage you to stop in at Marble Slab next time you are near. But be warned... it is extremely addicting!
