Ice cream is delicious and cheaper than Mouse’s. Much prefer this place. Cute inside with seating. Located in the front of the old Opera house.

Visited this shop and Mouse's. The Candy Company had a better selection of ice cream at about half the price. Good candy selection also,

We stopped here after a long day on the mountain to get some ice cream. We were so disappointed. The store is absolutely filthy and we were not sure we even wanted to order anything. The dust was so thick on the counters and shelves...More

We've been here before but this last time was very disappointing. The service was very poor. It took forever to get through the ice cream line. However, the fudge was delicious! Too bad the service was so terrible, we would have gone back.

We were on a family vacation through Colorado and stayed the night in Ouray. While walking through the downtown in search of ice cream, we stopped in The Candy Co. As soon as we opened the door, the smell of pot overwhelmed us. We could...More
