Founded in 2013, Creamistry, a California-based chain that specializes in made-to-order liquid nitrogen ice cream using all-natural and organic ingredients with more than 60 flavors and toppings – has announced the opening of a new downtown location. The new store, located at 935 State Street is slated to celebrate with a grand opening event on Saturday, July 7. The Santa Barbara location will be owned and operated by Bilal Temel, who also owns the Bristol Creamistry in Costa Mesa, and recently opened his second location in Woodland Hills. The Santa Barbara location will be operated by Store Manager, Michael Shangaz. “We’re excited to bring Creamistry to Santa Barbara,” said Shangaz. “The concept is in high demand and we’re thrilled with the way the community has embraced the Woodland Hills and Bristol location. Creamistry’s premium-quality product allows for fully customizable combinations, and we feel confident that the Woodlands community will fall in love with our delicious ice cream as well.”

At  Creamistry customers choose a portion size, then an ice cream base (premium, organic, vegan coconut, or non-dairy sorbet), one of 30+ flavors, and then toppings from a list of 35+ options that include candy, cookies and cereal, fruits, and sauces. The ice cream is made right before the customer with a lot of billowing smoke thanks to the flash-freezing process. When the liquid nitrogen (-321° F) hits the base it freezes so fast that ice crystals don’t have a chance to develop, resulting in a decadently rich and luxuriously creamy ice cream with virtually no overrun.
