Scoops N Scoops Creamery, a liquid nitrogen ice cream shop, has opened in Irvine. They seem to be in soft opening modes since last Friday, and though it appears that they are indeed making ice cream just like Creamistry does, using mixers and liquid nitrogen, they are also offering the ice cream stuffed between cookies, and macarons, as well as inside cones and on top of brownies.
They're also combining the ice cream with syrup-drenched shaved ice for one of their so-called "Iconic Creations" and also pouring espresso over other scoops to make affogatos.
You could also get a plain old float or shake. Prices range from $5.50 to $7.50 for most items.
