My favorite local ice cream shop, hands down, is Glacier Homemade Ice Cream and Gelato. You all know that I’m a huge fan of supporting local businesses. Well, when you frequent Glacier, you’re taking it one step further; not only are they a locally owned shop, but they also make their ice cream fresh daily using locally sourced ingredients.
Rated in the top 10 in the nation by Forbes Traveller, winner of numerous awards in Colorado, Glacier is simply the best ice cream and gelato you can get. We make our ice cream the old-fashioned way: fresh fruit from local farms, hand-mixed flavors, fine imported chocolate, locally roasted nuts and coffee beans. One bite and you’ll taste the difference.
Glacier Homemade Ice Cream and Gelato is located in University Village, by the new Costco and Lowe’s.
Today, local website SpringsPros.com is giving away ice cream or gelato for four from Glacier, a $12 value. Even better: they’re giving this prize to four lucky winners! That means that 16 people in Colorado Springs will soon experience Glacier for themselves.
Now, let me tell you a little bit about SpringsPros.com. “Springs Pro’s provides consumers of the Colorado Springs area with insights into trusted, respected local businesses in their area”.
Have you ever gone online to research about local plumbers, automotive technicians, accountants, or cleaning services? I’ve found that these industries, plus many others, tend to be difficult to find online. Maybe the bulk of their business comes from referrals so they don’t need a website or Facebook page.
Whatever the reason, SpringsPros.com has come up with a solution. They’ve listed a directory of trusted providers in a variety of industries that are not otherwise well represented online. This is a fantastic resource for our community!
