Cool N2

Cool N2 (@cooln2canada) is a newly opened store located at 28 south unionville avenue unit 1036, Markham, that specializes in making liquid nitrogen ice cream!!! When I found out about this place, I knew I had to go there ASAP because lets face it, this place is probably going to start getting super packed and probably will start getting really long line-ups. Their name..is a little cheesy but it does live up to its name! This place is super cool and I would definately go back there again! Not only were their ice cream amazing….the staff made our visit there super interactive and fun! 

They mixed everything in the kitchen-aid mixer and they added the liquid nitrogen to freeze the ice cream. I’ve never seen anything like this, needless to say, I watched this whole process with great astonishment. This kind of reminded me of highschool science class. But seriously…if science class was this fun, I probably woud have aced it!

Whiskey Chocolate– $5.99(s) $7.99(l)

The original whiskey chocolate is supposed to have: chocolate ice cream and whiskey topped with chocolate sauce and chocolate roll cookie. However, I liked the toppings from their chocolate brownie ice cream, so I asked the staff if I could substitute the toppings. They were kind enough to let me change it up! 😊 This is what I called great customer service.

This whiskey chocolate was the highlight of the night for me. I’m not saying that just because it contains whiskey!! It’s amazing because its got the perfect balance of chocolate sweetness and a little bit of an extra kick of flavor from the whiskey. Not one flavor was overpowering the other. 

Matcha Partner– $5.99(s) $7.99(l)

Matcha ice cream topped with red bean & taro and condensed milk. 

This was really good as well, but I wouldn’t recommend you to eat this and the whiskey chocolate at the same time because the matcha flavor will be totally drowned by the other flavor (which was what I did). 

Frozen breath

Cheetos mixed in with liquid nitrogen. 

This was so much fun to eat!! My sister and I looked like 2 fire breathing dragons with smoke coming out from our mouths and noses! Be super careful not to touch the cup though, it was really cold. 

Poplce– $7.99

Milk mango or chocolate banana and milk pudding. 

Milk Oreo– $5.99(s) $7.99(l)

Milk ice cream and Oreo 

The one to the left is: Fresh Lemon-$5.99(s) $7.99(l)

Milk ice cream and lemon and honey

Verdict: Not only was it a super yummy treat, perfect for any hot weather; it was really fun as well. The staff there were really nice, helpful and interactive. They even demonstrated how to eat the cheetos so that we can breath out smoke from our noses. They also didn’t cheap out on pouring liquid nitrogen onto our icecream. They did it multiple times so if you missed it the first time, or if it wasn’t long enough, they will pour it for you again! I enjoyed my visit so much that I will definitely go back there with more of my friends!

Parking: Free parking. Lots of parking around that plaza. While you are there, you can also check out the other restaurants as well as picking up some groceries at T&T!
