an ice cream crawl is my fave

May 29, 2013

Kersey and crew were visiting Denver last weekend and since I base my vacations around food, I decided an ice cream crawl was in order. Here are the places we went in Denver (but you could easily do this in any city):

bonnie brae ice cream

Bonnie Brae – Old fashioned ice cream at it’s finest. The itty bitty cone is all I could muster since this was our last stop.

little man ice cream

Little Man – The salted oreo won our pick for best flavor. Plus it’s impossible not to like something that’s served to you through the windows of a giant milk jug.

cloud 9 frozen custard

Cloud 9 Frozen Custard – Ryan would say this easily wins best frozen treat in Denver. Just chocolate and vanilla, but what mighty chocolate and vanilla it is. Plus the owners know everybody by name.

sweet action ice cream

Sweet Action – This is where the cool kids go. I pose for a minute to grab some cookie butter oreo or salted butterscotch.

buenos aires gelato

Buenos Aires Pizzeria gelato – Super flavorful as gelato should be.

All you need to do to turn this into a party is arm each guest with a map highlighting each stop and in which order, and carpool (or bike) around for your city’s best frozen treats. You could even have a score card like we did for the chocolate chip cookie party. Add it to your summer bucket list.
