Colorado City Creamery, Colorado Springs, CO

Colorado City Creamery’s ice cream has been handmade since the late 1970’s. Located in an adorable neighborhood I could move into tomorrow, it’s full of charm. My one beef is that, like most of the soft serve frozen yogurt chains so prevalent nowadays; they charge for their ice cream by the ounce. (It always unnerves me when I have no idea what my ice cream will cost – it’s dangerous!) My three Scoop total was 9.48 ounces and came to $10.26 with tax.

They’ve also got a window so you can see them making the ice cream. Here’s what we tried:

Kettle Corn – The base itself has the sweetness of kettle corn – it’s great! It kind of has caramel rivers too, no chunks, and it’s awesome and unique. It’s almost like that burnt popcorn flavor, in a good way. Super smooth, creamy and rich. Excellent.

Butter Brickle – This is like a butterscotch base with toffee pieces in it. It’s excellent, with strong and compelling flavors. The chunks are outstanding caramel toffee goodness.

French Silk – This is pretty good, a light and smooth chocolate base with great chocolate chunks.

Sweet Cream – This is a light, milky but sweet, base, which I found good with a creamy texture, though not super memorable.

They’re extremely good at a creamy and consistent ice cream texture here.

Although I found their flavors to be of the old-fashioned variety, it’s gourmet quality and they’re very good at what they do. Pretty excellent at it, in fact.

Thanks to Colorado City Creamery for a delicious bite. We will be back, I’m sure!
