Ice cream, like revenge, is best served cold and at a birthday party. I scream, you scream with this Groupon.

$5 for $10 Worth of Ice Cream and Gelato

The shop carries up to 60 flavors at a time, including cookie dough, key-lime pie, chocolate mousse, and pistachio gelato ($3.30–$5.30). Ice cream flavors include coffee caramel crunch, pralines and cream, and Chai, a mix of cinnamon, ginger and Madagascar bourbon vanilla flavors ($2.99- $4.65). They also craft lattes as large as 16-ounces from locally roasted Umpire Estate beans ($3.50). Homemade waffle cones along with cakes, malts, and banana splits are also available.

Glacier Homemade Ice Cream & Gelato

The super-premium ice cream at Glacier Homemade Ice Cream & Gelato—which represented Colorado on Serious Eats’ list of America’s Best Ice Cream—is proof that less is more. Their chief concern is “overrun,” a term that refers to how much air is mixed into each batch of ice cream. Some less delicious ice creams can contain up to 50% air; however, Glacier’s flavors contain only 5%–7% air, yielding richer flavors and a creamier texture.

Also lauded by outlets such as the Denver Post and Colorado Daily, Glacier has a catalogue of more than 800 flavors, up to 60 of which are on hand and ready to scoop at all times. Their ice cream wizards create a new flavor every two weeks, resulting custom tastes such as chocolate raspberry truffle, caramel Oreo, and espresso chocolate buzz with a double-strength coffee base. They also craft premium Italian gelatos with skim milk, producing rich frozen treats with half the fat of ice cream in flavors such as chocolate hazelnut, peanut butter fudge, and pistachio.

No matter the flavor, Glacier uses fresh ingredients such as hand-squeezed limes, ripe strawberries, and homemade chocolate. They’ve also committed to staying Colorado-local whenever possible, receiving produce from local food producers in Penrose, Rocky Ford, Palisade, and even stocking local Umpire State Coffee, local Jerry's Nut House, imported Italian candy and using local produce like apples, melons, and peaches.

We were very happy with the selection...we sat outside in the beautiful Colorado Springs air, and enjoyed the view while enjoying the gelato.
