Cold Stone Creamery: The Ultimate Ice Cream Experience

Most ice cream lovers have gone to Cold Stone Creamery where there is a signature process for preparing custom ice cream creations on a frozen granite stone. The person who mixes nuts, fruits and candy into the smooth and creamy ice cream is referred to as an artist, and the final product is no longer ice cream but a creation.

In the store, the ice cream comes in three sizes: "Like It" (5 ounces), "Love It" (8 ounces), and "Gotta Have It" (12 ounces). To Go Orders are available in "Mine," "Ours," and "Everybody's."God is not being reduced to ice cream; however, there is a theological principle surrounding this. Some people just want a little of God, so they order the "Like It" size. It is just enough for them to get a little taste of God. Then there are those who order the "Love It" size. They love to say they love God, and they do enough for others to think they do. But then there are those who order the "Gotta Have It" size. That's because they can't live without God and that intimate relationship with God. They gotta have it morning, noon, and night and every minute in between. Those who order the "Gotta Have It" size to eat inside the store are usually those who order the largest size to take with them to share with everybody else.

At this stage of our Christian journey we should have advanced from the "Like It" and "Love It" size to the "Gotta Have It" size.

Trust me...It is not just ice cream. It is the ultimate ice cream experience.

We have a Cold Stone close to where I live and it is to die for. I also agree with your analogy of "Gotta Have It." I really feel that if we don't have that hunger for the scriptures and for God's direction in our lives we are just not living a fulfilled life. If we can't get that coomplete infilling in our lives then we are just not satisfied and sometimes we go elsewhere for that filling. Very good hub

Thanks so much. I am glad to see that you love Cold Stone Creamery. I signed up for their birthday club for my grandchildren. It is alway a treat to see how excited they get by ordering the unique creations. Needless to say, I get excited about it too.

LOVE IT!!!! But there is not a Cold Stone Creamery out here but there is a Marble Slab and it is mmmm.... great! but I wanted to comment on your very last paragraph I hope you do not mind if I requote it real quick

"At this stage of our Christian journey we should have advanced from the "Like It" and "Love It" size to the "Gotta Have It" size.

Well I have a friend who had just emailed me and it was in regards to finding God and her faith and how she gave up at one point, but like me she to was raised by the bible and her faith had waivered at on point, I called her and I read this hub to her and I wanted to tell you thank you for helping me help my friend, I could not find the words myself but the very last paragraph brought everything full circle for her.
