COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - It's a sweet treat and a science experiment, too! Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream is now open at Century Square in College Station.

There are seven different cream bases to choose from including sugar-free, lactose-free, and vegan options.

The cream is flash frozen in front of your eyes with liquid nitrogen, making for a creamy dessert.

"It's not just getting to an ice cream shop, getting something from a bin, you actually get to see your ice cream made which is really cool and it's delicious," explained Salima Gheewalla, owner of Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream.

There are twenty different flavors of cream to choose from and thirty different toppings you can mix in.

Salima is an A&M Consolidated High School graduate and an Aggie. She is also a former educator that is excited about sharing science lessons in a fun way.

"There is an educational part of it, a component for them (children) to learn what liquid nitrogen is, how it is used to make our ice cream, and how it is in our air. It is 78% of the air that we breathe," explained Salima.

Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream is open Sunday to Thursday from noon to 10:00 p.m. and from noon to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

They are located behind Blaze Pizza and next door to Sweet Paris Creperie at Century Square in College Station. The address is 143 Century Square Drive, College Station, Texas 77840.
