Locally sourced ingredients, small-batch ice cream, and compostable products are what makes Sweet Cow more than just a sweet treat. Colorado-based, this place has several great locations around the state and each one is a little different from the next. The overall store design is inspired by a retro 1960’s soda fountain, complete with stools and all. The Denver location even has a giant disco ball hanging from the ceiling! Their menu consists of root beer floats, milkshakes, ice cream sundaes, ice cream sandwiches, and the simple but classic waffle cone scoop. Sweet Cow prides itself in using compostable, biodegradable, and recyclable materials, saying it hopes to be the “cleanest ice cream shop in the world.” One thing that makes Sweet Cow great for little ones is their little howdy cows, aka a small rubber bouncy cow that kids can ride around the store or outside! They are super cute and available for purchase if your child happens to fall in love with it.
