Nitrogen ice cream shop now open in Sandy Springs

Another nitrogen ice cream shop has opened its doors in metro Atlanta.

The first Georgia location of Provo, Utah-based Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream is now open at The Prado at 5590 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.

Nitrogen ice cream is made by flash-freezing ice cream using liquid nitrogen, which minimizes the amount of ice crystals in the product. Sub Zero's menu features seven cream bases, including original, custard, low-fat and yogurt, as well as lactose-free, vegan and sugar-free options.

After selecting a base, customers can choose from more than 30 flavors and mix in a variety of fruit, candy, nuts or baked goods. Liquid nitrogen shakes and smoothies are also available.

Nitrogen ice cream is the latest specialty ice cream trend to make a splash in Atlanta , along with Thai ice cream rolls and shaved ice cream.

Sub Zero has more than 55 locations nationwide, in addition to stores in China and United Arab Emirates. The Sandy Springs location is owned by franchisees Tabassum "Tania" and Sana Chunara. The store is open from 11:30 a.m.-11:30 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11:30 a.m.-midnight Friday and Saturday.
