Cowabunga, Dude! Marianne’s Ice Cream finally comes to San Carlos.

August 17, 2008



Here's a “scoop” for you.   The Cowabunga Creamery has officially opened its doors in San Carlos this weekend, and they're unleashing a secret weapon on unsuspecting ice cream lovers:  Marianne's Ice Cream.  Yep, it's true — Cowabunga Creamery will be showcasing Marianne's Ice Cream as their main brand.

According to owner and San Carlos resident Bill Cotter,  Cowabunga Creamery chose to go with Marianne's because of the quality, the flavor assortment and the connection to surf city.  Personally, I'm thrilled at this development.  Downtown San Carlos really needed a replacement (and an upgrade) for Scoops, and I always knew that any connection to Marianne's would be a smashing success.  I can't wait to check out their new digs.

So be sure to check out The Cowabunga Creamery for their opening weekend.  They're located at 784 Laurel Street, and here's their website:  Cowabunga Creamery.   Then you'll see what the excitement is all about.
