Very good ice cream, but---

What we saw did not totally match tripadvisor reviews nor photos. The candy shelves had big glass jars of old-time favorites, and the display cases were sort of filled with fudge and baked goods. I had the dulce de leche ice cream in a cup, and it was quite good. I did notice that some of the... read more

The only reason I give this place a 1 rating is because the ice cream was good. The place is very dirty and the help doesn't do anything to clean up. They sit and play on their phones looking bored. It seemed as if it really put the young girl out to have to scoop $30 worth of ice cream... More

We stopped to check out what kind of candies and ice cream selection they had. We found a couple of very young adults in charge of the place. Looking at the candy cases was a sad sight. We noticed bags of candy that you buy at Costco behind the counter and that's what they were replenishing their cases with. The... More

I don't know WHAT candy store some of the other reviews went to, but the Ouray Candy store on the North end of town was disgusting. About 90% of the store was empty cartons, the rest was dirty fly-ridden leftovers. It had smeared chocolate all over the counters, and the worker told my brother in law, "I'll give you a... More

we stopped in for some ice cream and everything we tried to order they did not have. We asked for a hot fudge sundae and after waiting a loooong time, were given ice cream where they literally took some of their fudge and attempted to melt it over the ice cream. Didn't work well and wasn't good.

I love a good candy store but this really isn't it :( I don't know if they used to have more of a variety and just haven't stocked in awhile or what but it felt very sad inside :(

We walked past the Moose Ice Cream place as it was too crowded, ending up here. Pleasantly surprised with good ice cream and decent service. The lady serving us thanked us in Spanish and I liked that!

We stopped in late Saturday afternoon and there were no other guests in the store. Two ladies were behind the counter, and they both seemed to be unhappy with each other. Although they both joked around, it wasn't the most friendliest feeling, compared to the other stores we visited in Ouray. We did pick out several chocolate covered candies. All... More

One of the few places open on Christmas Day. Service person was not friendly and looked in very poor health. Although I bought one piece of candy, just to be friendly, but threw it in the trash after returning to our room - afraid it may have been as bad as the condition of the help.

We stopped in here about noon and the place was closed. We tried again about 4 PM and it was open. We mentioned to the clerk working there that we had been in earlier and her only reply was "Well this is Ouray". She seemed to have no interest in helping us, and some of the prewrapped fudge felt like... More
