About Little Man Ice Cream
Little Man Ice Cream is a family business that started as a dream, a dream to build an ice cream shop that was a little different. Mission accomplished.
First of all, you can’t miss Little Man Ice Cream shop. All you have to do is look for the giant 28-foot antique cream can incorporated in to the design of their ice cream shop. Or you can look for the line of people waiting outside because the ice cream is so worth the wait. And while you wait, try your hand at hula hooping.
Over their fifteen plus years, their business has grown via word of mouth as some of the best ice cream you’ve ever tasted. In fact, it’s made from locally sourced ingredients and it’s good enough to make it onto the bucket list of every ice cream lover around the world.
Scoop for Scoop Program
Little Man Ice Cream built its reputation on ice cream but they always have something more going on. It might be a pancake breakfast, a YouTube Night, poetry reading, or something else. They are all about giving back to the community, giving regionally, and even giving internationally.
They accomplish this through the Scoop for Scoop Program in which they put aside five cents for every scoop of ice cream they sell, and they use that money to fund various groups that travel internationally to provide relief to third world countries and those in need around the world.
If you plan to make a stop at Little Man Ice Cream on your next trip to Denver, be sure to visit their Facebook page to check specials. For instance, as of the writing of this article, they are offering a free bucket of salted Oreo to the first person to come in and tell them to “enjoy responsibility.”
