As you may recall, last week I shared my review of Glacier Homemade Ice Cream and Gelato in Boulder, Colorado. It was actually the first of three ice cream places during my visit! My second stop was Sweet Cow, another popular place with multiple locations in Boulder.
Sweet Cow also allows you to combine flavors in your cup. Thank goodness! Their ice cream wasn’t as creamy as Glacier’s, but it was creamy enough. It also had a touch of graininess to it, which reminded me of Vicki’s in Silver City, New Mexico.
The prices here are cheap, although the portions weren’t huge. But it felt ample.
Here’s what I thought of the individual flavors:
OXO Coffee – This is for a real coffee lover. You can really taste the granules and the whole coffee drinking experience. This is very different from Brigham’s, my standard go-to coffee ice cream. It has so much oomph! It’s amazing. Like a strong cappuccino. I love that it lets the bitterness of the coffee shine over the sweetness. The sweetness is there to balance it. This is delicious, but only get it if you love a strong coffee flavor.
Dutch Chocolate – This is pretty smooth, more so than other flavors here, but still with a touch of graininess. It’s a beautiful middle range chocolate. Like I’d expect from a Belgian Chocolate …it’s a really delicious chocolate. This is worthy of my top ten so far.
Adobe Chocolate – This doesn’t have a ton of initial flavor, but afterward the heat comes. It’s very fun, though it probably doesn’t make my top five of spicy chocolate ice creams.
Fruity Pebbles – Ross tried this because of the gluten. He said it tasted good, but the cereal wasn’t crunchy, so he wasn’t interested in it.
The Big Lebowski – This is a White Russian flavored ice cream. It’s delicious!
NY Cheesecake – This is exactly what Ross hoped it would be, to pair with the big Lebowski. He said the chunks of cheesecake are really good. (Alas, none for me.)
They also have a few vegan flavors, plus sorbets. And they have absolutely amazing merchandise! We were definitely tempted even before we tried the ice cream.
Sweet Cow has fun playing with flavors and creates a great atmosphere. Thank you, Sweet Cow!
