Nuggs Ice Cream

Rachel Schutt, Writer

Nuggs Ice Cream is a family-owned business in Park Hill, Denver. Nuggs started up in 2014 by brothers Chris and Nick O’Sullivan and their love for ice cream. This same incredible family also owns Brothers BBQ. Nuggs is located at 5135 E Colfax Ave in Denver, Colorado. 

 

Nuggs Ice Cream has a great patio with benches to sit on and they have used yellow tape to mark off sections so that families will be socially distanced outside while they eat their ice cream. They have an entrance door and an exit door with tape x’s on the floor so ordering is an ease. You must wear a mask inside and when you are not eating your ice cream. They have stopped doing samples due to Covid-19 but all the flavors I have tried are delicious. 

 

My favorite ice cream flavor is either Myrtle Turtle which is a vanilla ice cream with caramel, chocolate and pecans,  Toasted Coconut, or Double Stuff Oreo. They have lots of flavors to choose from and I have been going there for 4 years and there are still flavors I have never tried before! Nuggs also offers unique flavors like Blue Moon which is blue and it kind of tastes like Froot Loops. They have lots of toppings for banana splits or ice cream in a cup-like cookie pieces, brownie pieces, Reese’s pieces, but they also have classic toppings like whip cream and cherries. Please help out our local businesses but please do it safely!
