Creamistry Grand Opening


The new Creamistry on Bristol Street in Costa Mesa will be celebrating its grand opening on Saturday, Oct. 3 with a FREE ice cream giveaway from 4 to 8 p.m..

Creamistry continues to take SoCal by icy storm with its newest location. Its made-to-order, liquid nitrogen ice cream brings edible science in seconds--a blast of liquid nitrogen flash freezes the ingredients and transforms into fresh, creamy ice cream.

Choose your ice cream base, from Straus cream to non-GMO and non-dairy/coconut milk base options — and pick from Creamistry’s more than 35 signature flavors, from birthday cake and cookie butter, to a variety of Asian-inspired flavors such as Thai iced tea, hand roasted black sesame and Matcha green tea.

The flavor combinations are endless and you can make your own truly customizable ice cream treat, just the way you want.   

3033 Bristol Street in Costa Mesa (at corner of Bristol and Paularino, between South Coast Plaza and The Lab/The Camp).
