Dinosaur-themed gourmet dessert shop Sweetosaur has opened in Riverside, California, serving ice creams in patent-pending Wafflesaurus Rex cones.
“Inspired by Japanese taiyaki, our Wafflesaurus Rex is our own original creation made in the spirit of Sweetosaur’s distinct style of combining dinosaurs and ice cream,” said Rachel Kanter, Sweetosaur co-founder. “It’s our most popular item by far.”
Wafflesaurus Rex cones replace more traditional waffle cones – providing a crunchy, warm, waffle in the shape of a Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur.
Sweetosaur also serves gourmet milkshakes and rolled ice cream.
Flavours include a Chocolate Wafflesaurus: a decadent chocolate waffle served with premium milk chocolate ice cream, chocolate “dinosaur” eggs, brownie bites, and chocolate fudge; and the Churrosaurus: a churro waffle served with premium dulce-de-leche ice cream, a chocolate wafer, and caramel.
Sweetosaur’s first store is at the Galleria at Tyler mall in Riverside, with a second soon to open at Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance.
