I really like the ice cream at Glacier's. It is creamy and neither too cold nor too melty. They have tasty shakes, too; I believe they come in big Styrofoam cups, which is unfortunate, though.

I love going to Glaciers! This place has everything, gelato, ice cream, shakes and malts. They have different flavors than your average ice cream store. For example, they mix the chocolate brownie with the chocolate chip cookie dough, and it is delicious. They are averagely priced.

There is something sublime about Glacier ice cream. My first introduction was the key lime pie. You could absolutely taste the freshness of the real limes. I like their esoteric stuff as well. The Valrhona sorbet is great right out of the case and it tastes like something you may have at the end of a Thomas Keller or Wolfgang Puck tasting menu. Incredible. I really like their coffee and tea as well. There's major attention given to quality ingredients here.

We love the ice cream here. Even the plain chocolate is rich and delicious. The flavors with "stuff" in them - nuts, chocolate chips, fruit, whatever - are packed with tasty bits. Their homemade chocolate "melts" (little pieces of chocolate, found in several flavors) are fabulous. We buy by the pint and take it home. After you eat this ice cream, anything you buy at the grocery store seems like a pale imitation.

Warning: The intense espresso ice cream is not for the faint of heart: coffee-lovers only!

Pros: Great ice cream/gelato, lots of flavors, prepacked pints

I live in what I affectionately term "Boulder's Ghetto". Srrounding the general area area defunct flower shop a few tried-looking strip malls, and a couple of apartment complexes. Just north of my place on 28th and Valmont, though, a tiny little hole-in-the-wall shop called Glacier Ice Cream is churning out some of the best ice cream, fro-yo and sorbet around. The real prize, however, occupies one whole case, glistening mounds of colorful, flavorful decadence in half-sheet pans.

The people who run the place are nice, will sample as much of as many flavors to you as you'd like, and are sometimes overly aggressive in promoting their ice cream. There are some good shops around here aside from Glacier, for sure, that scoop just as decent premium-quality ice cream. But I honestly haven't had as good gelato since I went to Greece for vacation. The rich, creamy, yet silkines of the gelato at Glacier is, in my experience as an ice-cream aficionado for the past twenty-four years, unsurpassed.

PROS: Gelato, but also good other treats, quirky atmosphere
CONS: some staff are friendly to the point of being overbearing, rude
