Soft serve ice cream creations geared toward Instagram are either becoming a trend or epidemic, depending on your perspective. I keep an open mind, as long as the product is thoughtful and flavorful. Creamology Cereal Bar is a colorful corner shop located near Los Angeles Valley College that delivers a fun twist: cereal blended into frozen-to-order soft serve.
Marine Mkrtchyan literally fused her two passions in June by opening Creamology Cereal Bar. Match four ice cream bases—vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or matcha—with 15 cereal choices; 19 different fruit, nut, cookie and candy toppings; and six different “drizzles.” Creamology delivers the goods in either cups, shakes, waffle sundaes or, best of all, cones. Yes, they offer six different custom waffle cones: vanilla (black or white), matcha, red velvet, Fruity Pebbles and chocolate.
For instance, if a customer wants to order a Fruity Pebbles cone filled with strawberry-Apple Jacks ice cream, topped with jelly beans and slathered with peanut butter, a Creamology staffer will comply with their request.
I opted for Green Tea Heaven, a “signature” combination featuring green tea ice cream blended to order with Honey Nut Cheerios, served in a custom green tea cone and topped with matcha powder and crushed pistachios. Traditionalists may prefer signature combos like Icy S’mores, Nutella Therapy and Oreo Crunch.
Creamology offers plenty of photo opps beyond the cone. The candy-colored space houses pastel blue walls and chairs, creative cartoon murals of cereal and ice cream at play and “Ice Cream Therapy” on the wall in blue neon.
