“Faithful customers... too faithful!!!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

Great service, huge servings, delicious! Can be a but of a wait but well worth it. Our favorites are the Mexican hot chocolate ( a little cayenne heat and mini marshmallows in the decadent chocolate ice cream) , sunken treasure, and butter pecan, actually they are all great and you can sample before ordering. The 2 scoop sundaes are huge and the whipped cream is so good! You can't go wrong here or at their 'island' Cold Calf location.

“Forget the St. George Street parlors”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

If you're seeking great, inexpensive ice cream, avoid the St. George Street ice cream parlors (the shops are all overpriced and extremely crowded).

Instead, head for Cold Cow or it's Cold Calf ice cream truck. For $2, we got a HUGE helping of homemade chocolate chunk ice cream. There was enough for four of us to get our fill. Cold Cow's ice cream is so creamy and decadent -- and they offer so many unique flavors. We had a difficult time deciding!

“Awesome ice cream!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Cold Cow is hands down the best ice cram I've ever had. There are so many flavors (with new ones introduced regularly) that you'll have trouble choosing! The display case shows about a dozen, check the wall for the list of others. Portion sizes are huge, and dished out with a smile. Fantastic!

“Midnight Chocolate”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Cold Cow was our very last stop on our way out of town. Great way to end our trip! Truly excellent ice cream served in abundant portions perfect for sharing. Family friendly, clean, locally owned and operated. Many more flavors are available than those on display - we had a hard time deciding!

For some reason I always lean toward cinnamon and banana. I sampled the Banana Pudding ice cream but didn't care for it, so I decided on a scoop of Cinnamon and a scoop of Midnight Chocolate. Cold Cow's Cinnamon was the best cinnamon ice cream I've ever had. (In fact, I couldn't finish it, so we tucked it in our cooler, drove it across the state and polished it off the next day!) The Midnight Chocolate tasted like decadent, dark chocolate and was, well, an experience to say the least. If you love dark chocolate please extend yourself some kindness and get a scoop of their Midnight Chocolate!

Hubby enjoyed his scoops of Toasted Coconut and Heavenly Hash. I sampled the Toasted Coconut and it was excellent. Mmmm... it would be great with that dark chocolate! Mom ordered Extreme Chocolate which she said didn't taste like chocolate (not sure how that's possible.) And Dad had Calypso Crunch and another peanut butter flavor. He enjoyed them so much that he ate in silence, at a different table, so that we couldn't steal away a spoonful! :)

In two visits to St Augustine, this is the best ice cream we've had. It far exceeds even my favorite local ice cream shop. Looking forward to our next visit - we'll make it our first stop in town next time!

“Cold Cow great place for ice cream”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Lots of flavors and reasonable priced. Friendly service and "family" atmosphere. Stumbled on this place after eating at Dick's Wings and Grill at the same strip mall. I don't have much else to say about this place but am required to enter a minimum of 100 characters in my review.
