Scrape it, roll it: New ice cream concept heads for Boise mall

A new concept in ice cream will soon open at Boise Towne Square. C4 Creamery applied to open a small shop near the mall’s main entrance. The space used to house Chess Cafe – which both opened and closed last year.

C4 Creamery, which currently operates a store on S. Cole Rd. near Victory, serves what it calls ‘rolled ice cream bowls.’ To make the product, workers pour unfrozen ice cream ingredients out on a frozen surface. After it hardens, workers scrape the product off the table and serve it in rolled form, along with additional toppings like whipped cream or chocolate.

Creations include Holy Rollie Peanut Butter, S’Mores on Fire, Spud Roll (which includes potato chips), and more

“We had the pleasure of enjoying rolled ice cream during a brief visit to the Bay Area,” the owners said on their website. “We immediately fell in love with the concept and came together as a family to create a unique and fun experience for the Treasure Valley. We started out as a mobile tent and got our first big break at the Capital City Public Market making hand-crafted rolled ice cream for the Boise community and those visiting the area.”

Permits indicate C4 will take over the existing Chess Cafe space with little alteration.
