In honor of the rollout, the Fresh Ideas Group hosted an ice cream social yesterday, where we sampled Figo as well as many of Boulder Ice Cream's signature flavors.
Boulder Ice Cream has come a long way since it started making and serving homemade, all-natural ice cream out of a storefront on the Pearl Street Mall in 1992. In 1997, it moved to a larger facility near 28th and Canyon, where it started producing ice cream for restaurants and grocery stores -- beginning with Whole Foods Market. Today the super-creamy ice cream can be found in Whole Foods, King Soopers, Sunflower Market, Sprouts and Vitamin Cottage stores in Colorado, as well as nine states in the western and southern U.S.
Boulder Ice Cream will be featured at the Denver Zoo's Ice Cream Social from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, August 10; the event will benefit Denver Zoo's Red Apple Fund for Life-Long Learning.
