IDAHO FALLS – As the weather gets warmer and more time is spent outdoors, many people enjoy a cold tasty treat.

If you fit into that category, there’s a new dessert option available. It’s called Creamy Daze.

The seasonal business is opening Saturday, May 1 inside a trailer at 2400 South 25th East on the east end of the Grand Teton Mall parking lot in Idaho Falls.

Owner Taylee Brinkerhoff tells they offer a variety of rolled ice cream treats for customers. She explains how it works.

“It starts with a base of chocolate or vanilla. We pour it onto our negative 20-degree cold plate. You choose what flavor to mix in,” Brinkerhoff says.

After it’s mixed together, it’s flattened out and formed into rolls.

The menu includes about 30 different toppings. Some of the favorites are the cookie monster served with Chips Ahoy chunks and Oreos. There’s also the mud pie, which is a brownie with chocolate ice cream, crushed Oreos and gummy worms on top and the fruity pebble served with vanilla ice cream and Airheads candy.

“We have lactose-free options of ice cream and mix-ins. We have a lot of fruit mix-ins, too. We’re doing a waffle taco as well, a waffle cone shaped like a taco shell with a roll of ice cream and toppings in the middle,” says Brinkerhoff. “There are windows on three sides of the trailer so you can watch it being made.”

Brinkerhoff discovered Creamy Daze after seeing videos posted online. She and her husband found a store during a recent trip to Provo, Utah and decided to try it out. Their experience prompted them to open a store in eastern Idaho.

The couple is excited to open up and see how customers respond.

Creamy Daze will be open from noon to 9 p.m. the first day. After that, it will be open 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday for the first month and from noon to 9 p.m. from June 1 until Sept. 1.

The business provides catering services for any occasion. Visit the website or Facebook page to learn more.
