We LOVE Glacier's ice cream! We were in Boulder 4 days over Thanksgiving and went 4 times and one of the four days it was closed for Thanksgiving. We arrived in Boulder at 11:00 and had to go to Glacier first (before we went out to lunch) for our first fix of ice cream. We only go out for ice cream in Boulder and frozen custard in St. Louis, never at home in Kansas City because we don't have an ice cream store worth going to at home. We love every flavor we have tried. I adore Coffee Carmel Crunch and Funkey Donkey. My boyfriend loves these too but will also get the mint, oreo cookie, cherry, and others. What choices they have and they all are wonderful. We can't be in Boulder and not come to Glacier at least once a day. Love their ice cream!!!

The ice cream here is always really good. They have a lot of flavors to choose from, and all the ones that I've tried have been great. Usually they move people through line quickly, which is a bonus. Overall, a nice little ice cream place.

Glacier has an extensive variety of flavors and types of frozen desert: sorbet, gelato etc. My favorite is the dark chocolate gelato with raspberry sorbet. They will mix flavors. The atmosphere is poor. There are a few small tables with uncomfortable chairs. You may get lucky and get to sit on the comfy couch. There are tables outside, again with uncomfortable chairs and your view is of the parking lot and 28th St. You can purchase pints and take them home to eat in more favorable surroundings.

So many flavors, so little time. This little place was within walking distance of our hotel and the girls behind the counter were really nice. Free samples of both ice cream and gelato! Yum.

Oh so good. I had the death by chocolate, which i thought was ultimate until i tasted my kids chocolate chip cookie dough. I dont even like that kind but it was excellent. On a scale of one to ten we gave it an eighty nine bazillion hillion (public schooling for ya). So worth the calories.
