Creamistry brings its ice creams made with liquid nitrogen to Las Colinas, Fort Worth on Tuesday, May 15


California-based Creamistry brings its super-premium, made-to-order ice creams to Fort Worth and Las Colinas next week. Grand Opening parties are slated for Saturday, May 19 at both, though the two stores will be open to the public sometime earlier in the week, probably May 15, an employee of the Addison store told the Hatch. That store, the first Creamistry in the Dallas area, opened last year.

Creamistry makes its ice creams by adding super cold liquid nitrogen to a creamy ice cream base. When the liquid nitrogen makes contact with the liquid base, the mixture freezes so quickly that ice crystals don’t have time to form. That makes the ice cream ultra smoooooth and ultra creeeeeamy. It’s a trendy technique that produces oooh and ahhhs and puffs of smoke, which is like ice cream magic.

Creamistry customers choose a portion size, an ice cream base (premium, organic, coconut or non-dairy sorbet), one of more than 30 flavors, and finally, toppings from a list of more than 35 options including candy, cookies and cereal, fruits and sauces.

The company says Creamistry was founded in 2013 after founder Jay Yim was first introduced to liquid nitrogen ice cream when he spotted a street vendor making it during a trip to South Korea in 2003. Born into a family of Korean bakers, Yim and his wife, Katie, made their first homemade ice cream using liquid nitrogen with the help of his father as the quality control “chemist.” And because Cream + Chemistry = Creamistry. The core menu includes more than 100 flavors and combinations.

Creamistry operates more than 4 dozen stores across the U.S. The Fort Worth location is a franchise operated by Jordan and Nicole Scott, the husband-and-wife team that owns Fort Worth’s Mama’s Pizza chain. The Fort Worth location, at 628 Harold Street, will offer free ice cream during their grand opening celebration on Saturday, May 19, from 12 pm until 2 pm. The Las Colinas store is located at 5250 N. O’Connor Blvd. in Irving. Creamistry’s website shows two additional Dallas locations (The Colony and Lower Greenville Ave.) are due to open soon.
