Treat day is one of the best things in the world – there’s just no contest. This is coming from someone who appreciates food a lot and loves finding somewhere where you can find the ideal cheat meal, snack or desert that is really worth splashing those extra calories on. Well, Subzero ice cream parlour in the Rhondda is the ideal place to find one.


We took a trip to the industrial park in Williamstown to try some of the ice creams on offer and to see if all the local hype was really worth it. After all, ice cream is ice cream and we have two Kaspas in Cardiff so is it worth the trek? Actually, it is.

When you walk through the door, you are faced with several counters filled with ice cream and menus across the back wall of ice cream delights you could only have dreamt of. Towards the back of the store, there’s a takeaway option where you can find tubs of ice cream as well as very appealing ice cream cakes. It’s quite a small store in terms of how many people it can sit down at any one time however, it does offer a takeaway option for all their freshly produced treats so it has the best of both worlds.


One thing that was particularly appealing was the Ferrero Rocher crepe. Basically, this was a plate filled with Ferrero Rochers, chocolate and vanilla ice cream, a crepe covered in chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Sound like a lot? Well, yes it was. It was 100% a calorific meal but definitely something worth having as a treat – it was delicious.

We also managed to try waffles with raspberries and vanilla ice cream and a Caribbean ice cream cocktail which were both met with positive reviews from our foodie team. Not only do Subzero work hard to make their dishes as tasty as possible, but everything looked so pretty and definitely ‘Instagram worthy’, making the experience very shareable. You can tell by their Twitter feed and the Instagram hashtag #subzero that many others think the same.

This store has already seen significant success since it opened earlier this year and we can see it definitely being a summer hotspot for people in South Wales. It’s great to see a business thriving in the Rhondda valleys, especially as we have a personal link to the area. We already can’t wait to go back for our next treat.
