Best Science Experiment on an Ice Cream Cone: Sub Zero Ice Cream (Video)
We've spent the last year in the laboratory putting Phoenix under the microscope to reveal hundreds of specimens of the best culture, outdoor adventures, shopping, dining, and nightlife the city has to offer. And we're finally ready to publish our results. Nerd alert! Now presenting Scientific Phoenix.
Forget those slow-churned, soft-serve, frozen confections of the past. If you're in the mood for dessert and a show, get your ice cream flash-frozen at Sub Zero Ice Cream in Gilbert.
The folks at this national chain claim their ice cream is the creamiest around because it's made without ice -- just liquid nitrogen, which freezes your ice cream in dramatic, fog-filled fashion. We're not so sure about Sub Zero's marketing campaign -- the saying "Cryogenics + Mixins = Delicious" is frankly not too appetizing. But we do love the show, which you can see for yourself during our conversation with Sub Zero's Gilbert operations manager. Check out the video by Evelyn Ngugi .
