“If you like Dipping Dots...”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

I actually think Dipping Dots are better in the world of "alternative ice creams." This was was good though. Even getting the "low fat" seemed to have a lot of flavor. The show is fun watching them zap the liquid concoction with nitrogen. Better than Big Olaf but not as good as Orange Octopus.

“Pretty good ice cream”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Saw this place on Shark Tank and I'm a fan of the show so I had to visit this place. The "show" they give you is pretty good as they chill the ice cream right in front of you. I've read online that people say the ice cream has a different taste to it and I can kind of agree with them. The ice cream was really good but it did taste just a touch different that "normal" ice cream that I've had before. Big Olaf has really good "normal" ice cream but Sub Zero is definitely a place to check out.

“Great desserts, and good fun too!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

My son enjoyed a 'nitro' custard concoction. It all is hand-made before your eyes and the kids (adults, too) enjoy seeing the nitrogen inroduced to the mixing bowl and the vapors blocking the bowl, and preparer, from view. Magic!

“Different experience”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The best part are SubZero is the process - very interesting and fun. The final product is good, but not for the serious ice cream/yogurt crowd

“Sub Zero a delightful surprise!!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Sub Zero isn't just good ice cream/frozen yogurt, the preparation of it from liquid to solid is real entertainment! The choices are many, and you can choose anything from premium ice cream, to the more healthy frozen yogurt or almond cream.
Because of the way it is prepared, the flavors seem more intense, and the ice cream itself has a better texture.
Our 1st visit was at lunch today, and we will be going back tonight!!
