Summertime brings with it warm weather and the nostalgia of childhood; sitting in front of a Nintendo console for a few hours in the morning so your parents could sleep in, then tearing it up outside with some ice cream or popsicles and a sprinkler.
Now, you can bring back some of those stellar memories with an exciting collab between Cold Stone Creamery and Nintendo. With three new flavors and a special Nintendo cake, Cold Stone is turning the heat up a notch just in time for your best summer ever.
The Taste of Summer
Cold Stone and Nintendo are offering three limited-time flavors sure to please fans young and old alike.
Here are the three flavors being offered for the Ice Cream Creations:
- Kirby and the Forgotten Land Creation: The Mighty Pink Puff, created with strawberry ice cream, strawberries, mini-marshmallows and caramel. The playful pink color and delightfully sweet taste will have your inner child swelling with joy.
- Animal Crossing New Horizons Creation: Island Getaway uses chocolate ice cream, strawberries, bananas and whipped topping. It's the perfect eclectic Animal Crossing vibe that makes you feel like you're stopping by Nook's for the island's newest flavor.
- Mario Party Superstars Creation: Superstar Sprinkle Blast is the multi-colored confection you didn't know you needed. Rep your favorite game and dominate your opponents with a fun dessert made from cake batter ice cream, yellow cake, blue frosting and sprinkles.
There are three themed Gotta Have It cup designs that playfully boast elements from the three featured games: Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Mario Party Superstars.

We are thrilled to announce that Cold Stone is joining together with Nintendo once again to celebrate ice cream season. We knew we had to come up with something extra special for our third year, and what better than to feature three of Nintendo's beloved game titles like Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Mario Party Superstars. Our guests are going to love collecting their beloved Nintendo characters on special edition cups while enjoying our super-premium ice cream this summer!
And if it's cake you're looking for, look no further.
The Rainbow Sprinkle Road Ice Cream Cake offers layers of moist yellow cake, sweet cream ice cream and rainbow sprinkles - all topped with Mario and Luigi figurines any enthusiast will long to add to their collection. The Nintendo superstars are driving their respective karts across the rainbow sprinkle road - but in this case you want them to spin off the track so you can get to the good stuff and starting chowing down.
Cold Stone Creamery locations nationwide will offer the promotional cake and flavors now through September 30, so don't snooze on the opportunity.
