It’s the summer of ice cream on yamf (have I made that painfully obvious yet?). If you’d like to join the cause of consumption, it’s time to organize the annual ice cream crawl. Gather up a group of fellow ice cream lovers, choose 3 to 5 shops to try in your area, bring along the scorecards, eat yourself silly, and declare a winner.
You can download these scorecards right here on Julep. They make things all official and such.
Another way to make things more official is to create maps for each of the guests. Here are the five scoop shops we hit up in Denver this year:
Glacier Ice Cream and Gelato – The place to go if you love variety and your ice cream with chunks.
Flavor to try: Funky Donky
Nuggs Ice Cream – Solid homemade ice cream but nothing really stood out to me here.
Flavor to try: Stellar Milky Way
High Point Creamery – If I opened an ice cream shop, this would be it. Every detail is spot on and the ice cream is the freshest I’ve ever tasted. The ice cream flight is absolute genius (five flavors, specialty toppings, hot fudge or caramel, and a tray that says Eat Your Heart Out).
Flavor to try: Chocolate Orange with Marshmallows or Mango Coconut Lassi
Em’s Ice Cream – Super fresh. Super creamy. Super tasty.
Flavor to try: Toasted Coconut (this blew me away)
Sweet Cow – I never met a flavor here that I didn’t like. Plus, pretzel cones!
Flavor to try: Oatmeal Cookie
Pace yourself and enjoy!
Psst, here are the five scoop shops we hit up last year.
