    Everything's delicious and the prices are unbelievable considering the quality and tastiness of the ice cream—If you want a popular flavor, you can likely decrease your wait by going to the cart/stand

    Come here for delicious ice cream and you could leave with a Christmas tree too! Just like their pumpkin patch for Halloween, they are selling Christmas trees right now!

    Huge portions, you can get a "single" and fit as many flavours as you want. I liked the salted chocolate Oreo cake one (also comes in vegan)

    Kids scoop is more than enough! Everything was delicious. Salted Oreo was my favorite. If you have little ones there is a slide or enjoy your ice cream in the park across the street.

    Their ice cream sandwiches are rock hard the ice cream from the tubs was gooey and half melted which was fantastic but not for everybody. Try Sweet Cow in Louisville/Boulder instead.

    Flavors listed here vary by day, check the signs next to the cashier for choices! Doesn't matter what you get. Everything is amazing! Also, check out the dope mural by the board shop!

    They make the waffle cones fresh in the back of the "milk can!" The Salted Oreo is yummy, and on a beautiful day nothing beats sitting out on the deck.

    Fun take away homemade ice cream place in LoHi neighborhood. Cones, soup and more located inside a bigger than life dairy container. Not $$$. Lines during weekends. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The salted caramel peanut butter one tastes amazing at the first bite, but after that it tastes like pure salt. Get a taster of it, then buy one of the other flavors.

    Believe the Little Man hype. It's worth any line you might have to wait in. It's rich, creamy, and the unique flavors make it such a treat. Salted peanut butter cup was awesome.

    Go on a Saturday so that you can enjoy your ice cream with a live bluegrass band killing it near the slide. Get two scoops, one must be strawberry. Avoid the Fanky Malloon.

  • Christopher M.
    You MUST have the Salted Oreo! It's so good & unique how the salt complements the sweetness. The Mexican Chocolate tastes like you're biting into Oct/Nov with the cinnamon flavor. Jack was helpful.

    Here is the salted Oreo everyone on here keeps taking about. It's more like pure salt cream. So if you're in to that give it a go. It's nothing to write home about, but the babes serving are!
