I had the tiger stripe ice cream with the peanut butter cone and it was wonderful. That peanut cone!! It was the best cone I've ever had.

I tried both Hayley's ice cream and this place during my week stay at Estes park and I'd have to say this ice cream was much better. It is just as pricey as Hayley's but the cones are really delicious and they offer many different...More
