Which is Better: Handel’s or Cold Stone Ice Cream?


Chloe B., Writer



Over the weekend, I went to the top 2 ice cream shops in Orange County. I did a taste test to see which one tastes the best. Here are the results:


1. Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream: This place had a big inside and a small seating area outside. The menu had a wide variety of unique flavors. I decided to get the flavor Oreo-Dough (Oreo and cookie dough ice cream in one!) It was very good. I would rate it a 9 1/2 out of 10! I definitely recommend it!  However, the service wasn’t the best, there were only two workers. We asked a few questions and the workers were not able to answer them. Although, the workers were friendly and fast. I would rate the service a 7.

2. Cold Stone Creamery: This place was small and it was kind of a free-for-all when sitting. At Cold Stone, you pick out a flavor of ice cream and a topping, or you can pick a pre-made one. The pre-made ice creams come withe a few toppings, one ice cream flavor, and a cone. The menu includes both normal and unique ice cream flavors. I got the flavor Sweet Cream with Oreo’s (Sweet Vanilla ice cream with Oreo toppings!) It was AMAZING!!!!! I gave it a 9 3/4 out of 10. However, the line was long it was almost out the door. But the workers knew what they were doing and were fast. I would rate the service an 8.


Overall, in my opinion I believe that Cold Stone was better based on their ice cream and service. I still really like Handel’s it was just the favors I chose this time I liked the cold stone sweet cream and Oreo’s better. Thank you for reading!!!
