Let’s face it, as much as we reminisce, the chances of us actually buying and eating any of the sugary cereals of our past is slim to none. Eating ice creams that taste exactly like them though? Um, yes. Pls. Pls pls pls pls. Pls.
At the Ice Cream Riot parlor in Denver, Colo., there are, at any given time, four rotating cereal-flavored ice creams — all made in house, all guaranteed to make you both wish you were a child and grateful you’re a grown up with money and no one to tell you no at the same damn time. Each flavor both tastes like and contains pieces of the cereal it’s named after, from Fruity Pebbles to Cinnamon Toast Crunch to Cookie Crisp, Apple Jacks, Crunch Berries and most recently, Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts.
Back in August, store owner Jim also nabbed himself a bit of internet infamy when he posted a note to stating he closed the store early due to rain and could be found on his couch “taking bong hits” and hanging out with hippies.
Coming from a guy selling everything from cereal to Doritos-flavored ice cream, hell, we believe it.
