I loved all the selections of ice cream. Not just the usual choc, vanilla, strawberry, but delicious creative flavors that were huge and plentiful. The lady Serena was also very pleasant and wonderfuly nice! Will definitely visit again!

We traveled to Estes Park for a few days on our family vacation. We stopped at Munchin House the first day and everyone loved it. We had to go back a second time before we left town again. Excellent ice cream, wonderful service, very clean...and well maintained. Loved it!! Our favorites were Colorado Snow Storm and the HuckleberryMore

Server was excellent and everyone enjoyed their ice cream and gelato in our family. One scoop is a huge serving too. Very generous. Highly recommend.

Great family stop for ice cream and treats after a long day of walking around town ! It was just the ticket to seal the day . Highly recommend it.

And on my 2nd visit this past week, she remembered serving me the day before. I'm thinking that she must have served a thousand people between my two visits. Stopped there a 3rd day, but she was out. She was really delightful; part of the...joy of my day. I had a chocolate cone one day and a half-chocolate/half whiskey chocolate chip cone the next. They didn't have any way to sample . . . probably due to COVID I guess. The carmel corn was great, too. There are at least a half dozen ice cream places in downtown Estes. But I prefer this one over the res.More

Popped in here and had a cold mint chocolate chip shake. Very tasty and well made. a little pricey, but to be expected on a tourist strip.

I'm surprised at all the rave reviews for this place. The store itself is very tiny, little harder to navigate. But we were like the only people in the place and the worker was kind of cleaning up and restocking ice cream flavors; couldn't even...be bothered to look at us, ask if we wanted anything or needed help. Finally I said we'd like to order, I started ordering ice cream, they have 3 different cone options, I said I wanted two scoops on a sugar cone, the guy pulled out a different cone and I was like no I wanted a sugar cone. He just rolled his eyes at me and then said two scoops won't fit on a sugar cone, so I'm like ok... The scoops are giant, one is definitely all you need! I got the horchata ice cream, which was delicious! But my bf got a mango ice cream, our son the spiderman ice cream, and my mom the butter brickle or something like that. Their's all tasted like vanilla, really had no flavor at all. Only mine with the horchata tasted like cinnamon. I could see why this place wasn't crowded at all, meanwhile the two ice cream shops up the street were busy.More

The owner does an amazing job at listing out ingredients in every ice cream and will wash utensils for you before serving. She does an amazing job and I highly recommend for any travelers with allergies! Fantastic!

Large variety and excellent ice cream. Two scoops is probably too much for most people. They also have chocolates and pies. Sit out back by the river walk.

Family of 5 all agreed that this homemade ice cream was the best we had during our visit. It was more flavorful and creamy than others on the same street. Must try the Huckleberry Ice cream!

I don't recall if they sold in larger quantities. I do remember that they try to use local ingredients.
