“Great ice cream but no small scoops for the over 60 crowd”

Sweet Peaks - Homemade Ice Cream
Ranked #1 of 9 Dessert in Kalispell
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American
Description: The best ice cream in westerm Montana has a new shoppe in Kalispell. We thank the owners for a repeat of the very popular store in Whitefish. Right on the main highway into, or out of downtown. This great creamy, tastey and original ice cream that used to be common, but factory stuff has replaced the good stuff.This is the good stuff

“Great ice cream but no small scoops for the over 60 crowd”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

It was huckleberry season when we were here and the ice cream was mmmmm-good and hit the spot after cycling on a warm day. I am a small, over 60s, female who enjoys ice cream in moderation and disappointedly, they would not serve me a junior scoop. In fact, I later discovered, a tall skinny guy was boycotting the Whitefish location for the same reason. Even though the young lady at the counter told me they had multiple requests from seniors for smaller scoops they refused to sell me one. Very odd. If I were a local, I might boycott them as well.

Hello and Thanks for visiting our stores while you were on vacation. We actually don't have a Junior or a Senior scoop. We do offer a mini scoop to toddlers, and it is basically a sliver of ice cream so that small people will not feel left out. We do have multiple people ask for it and we have to say no, we simply would not be in business if we gave away our ice cream for one dollar. After all it is only two dollars for the single scoop which most people are very Thankful that we are that cheap. If you want a smaller quantity just ask, but it's still two dollars, or just don't eat the whole thing. Thanks again for stopping by and hope you enjoyed the Flathead Valley! Sam~

“Salty Caramel. Huckleberry. Grapefruit Sherbet.”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

The smell of homemade waffle cones baking is so welcoming and heartwarming, it makes me happy just to walk in to Sweet Peaks. The salty caramel makes my taste buds sigh in contentment. The huckleberry makes my heart swoon. The grapefruit sherbet makes my body shiver in delight and wonderment. Is it sweet? Is it sour? I'm not sure but I LIKE it, says my brain with a giggle. I always love sampling their interesting, new flavors and feel like a little kid at a candy store, trying to pick the perfect flavor. Creamy, dreamy, absolutely deligihtful ice cream at an excellent price. The perfect stop after a day in the sun.

“Big things come in little packages”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Though Sweet Peaks locations are small, they are well worth it. Their quality is above the rest, they have wonderfully different flavors and always a clean environment. I don't care for sweets in general but me & my entire family are faithful fans of Sweet Peaks.
