Cup and Cone Ice Cream Parlor

Here in the land of warmth and Sunshine, ice cream is one of the necessities of life...or at least my boys seem to think so.  They are always asking to go to Cup and Cone Ice Cream Parlor.  It's become their treat of choice.

We do love to go to this old fashioned ice cream parlor with it's comfortable chairs, large group tables, and sweet smells.  After all, is there anything better than the sweet smell of dessert while sitting in a nice reading nook with a large scoop of Blue Bell ice cream in your hand?  Probably not.

Blue Bell ice cream is one of the best ice cream brands and a rare find in Colorado.  We all love the variety of flavors and Cup and Cone does not disappoint.  Dear Hubby loves Moo-lennium Crunch, while both my boys dream of Krazy Kookie Dough ice cream.   I'm a little more traditional with the Chocolate Chip Ice Cream and a "daring" flavor on top.  This time it was Black Cherry with large chunks of cherries mixed into the ice cream, other times it's been Pistachio Walnut or something equally sweet tasting.

If you are looking to add a little spice to your ice cream, Cup and Cone offers candy and treat toppings for a few cents more.  Daredevil likes the Yogurt Chips, while Mini Me adds gummy bears to everything he can.

You can also take home a little bit of heaven with pre-packed scoops of your favorite flavors or even an ice cream cake.  We purchased one of the ice cream cakes for Drama Queen's sixteenth birthday and she still raves about it to this day.

 Cup and Cone has added a new type of ice cream with the fun Cool Beads ice cream dots.  My boys were drooling over these yummy flavors the moment they saw them.  They have flavors such as Rainbow Ice, Cookies and Cream, Banana Split, and more.  The cold, little dots of sweetness would make a fun treat on the go as you walk around downtown.

If you're new in town, you should definitely go check out Cup and Cone.  Keeping the kids busy with yummy treats will keep them out of trouble and their mouths full so they won't argue this summer.
