Creamistry serves up liquid nitrogen ice cream to Alhambra residents

It was wet, cold, and dreary, but old and new customers were willing to stand under the rain to witness the grand opening of Creamistry in Alhambra on Fremont Avenue.

Creamistry opened its doors to the public on February 10. There are over 30 locations, but this is the first in Alhambra.

To celebrate the store’s opening, the ice cream shop passed out free t-shirts to the first 200 customers, served free ice cream from 4 to 6 p.m., and held a contest for participants to win free ice cream for a year. Drawstring bags were also passed out to those who took a picture of themselves and uploaded it onto social media with #CreamistryAlhambra.

Unlike traditional ice cream shops, Creamistry creates its ice cream from liquid nitrogen. One of the officials of the shop, Holly Lu, said, “Creamistry is a fresh liquid nitrogen ice cream. We use new technology to make the ice cream more textured and creamy and taste better than original ice cream.”

Many guests who attended the free ice cream event were high schoolers that rushed to Creamistry after school. Prior to the Alhambra store, Creamistry’s closest locations were Orange County and Koreatown, Los Angeles. “I’m excited because Creamistry is super far away, so [it] being here is so convenient,” Mark Keppel High School junior Ashley Tang said.

Several elected officials also attended the grand opening, including the mayor of Alhambra, David Mejia. They presented the store owner, Jason Xu, with certificates for the opening. Xu later stepped up to thank his wife, his business partners, and his best friend, and ended the speech with “Thank you, enjoy our ice cream.”
