Maggie Boo!. 1. The medium contains almost the exact same amount of ice cream as the small and both are deeply over priced. 2. If your child (or you, I suppose) does not like the flavor you guessed at, it will cost you another $3 to change it up, even though most any restaurant in the world will exchange an untouched dessert you don't like. 3. Ice cream for two adults and two children should not cost $20. Maggie Boo! We'll continue going to Baskin Robbins up the street....
Some of the best ice cream around..
Having grown tired of Coldstone's overly cold (no, ice cream isn't supposed to be as solid as the stuff you find in the back of the freezer at the grocery store), limited selection of flavors, I decided to try out some new options. In short: This is one of the better parlors I visited, and though it isn't the best ice cream ever (I've had some incredible stuff in California and on the East Coast), it is pretty darn good.
The place is a little bit cutesy, with lots of color and cows decorating the walls. The ice creams themselves are also very colorful.
Far more important than any questionable interior decorating,the place has a great selection of flavors, from the basics to stuff like red velvet cake (very good) and popcorn (not so good.) One time I was in the (perhaps odd) mood for chocolate and amaretto, and I was going to ask them to mix the flavors until I looked at their board and realized that they already had a flavor called "Cocoa Amooretto" (spelling intentional.)
The ice cream is almost always fresh - something that automatically puts it several steps ahead of most other local parlors - though some of their less frequently requested ones can be a little bit older. Even with the older flavors, however, the ice cream is almost always still of the perfect consistency, and neither too bland nor too sweet. It is delivered soft and cool, and the flavor never loses its savour as with other, too-cold varieties.
The ice cream is a bit expensive, and the servings are generally smaller than what you'd get at Coldstone, but as an occasional treat it's kind of perfect. It's now my favorite parlor near my house, and one of my two or three favorites in Utah and Salt Lake counties (and I've visited a lot of local parlors over the last few years since becoming disillusioned with Coldstone.)
Light, milky ice cream and an atmosphere as colorful as its cute, cartoon mascot..
Neon pink, turquoise and yellow clash merrily against black and white cow-spotted counters and tables. The story of Maggie Moo, the creamery's lovable mascot, is scribbled on the wall. Still, the place lacks the personality born of originality; it's an ice cream shop for the fast-food aficionado.
With two-dozen rotating flavors in a variety of styles, the menu can be a bit overwhelming. The cheesecake ice cream is divine, the cinnamon transports, and if you're a fan of chocolate or vanilla, your flavor rocks. For those who prefer their ice cream on the lighter side, this is the place--the soft-serve, fruit-flavored sorbet, and non-fat, no-sugar ice cream are both fantastic. Have that in a waffle cone, a waffle bowl, a cone dipped in chocolate, dipped in white chocolate, white chocolate with sprinkles--the possibilities are endless.
Coldstone Is Better. Tried Maggie Moo's for the first time and won't go back. Coldstone has better ice cream and better service.
fresh fresh fresh. tastes like they made it fresh when you order it
Moooooo. Folks, this ice cream is good. This is rich, flavorful stuff - and there is a good variety of flavors and mixers. And, the price is reasonable for the quality. All the people complaining about the price - if they're eating here so much that they're broke, then they're probably looking like cows themselves.
