This is already #6 in our Ice Cream tour! Yes this is Nelson's Ice Cream and there are only two locations for this family run business, Stillwater Minnesota and St. Paul Minnesota.
If you are looking for old fashion ice cream and a huge portion then this is the place to go! Nelson's offers over 40 flavors of ice cream and the amount you get huge and the price is fantastic!
We all ordered the kid size and none of us finished the monster portion size.
So since my ice cream was overflowing the cup I put half of it in a bowl. I finished all of the monster cookie flavor but became to full to eat the butter brickle flavor. I loved the monster cookie ice cream a lot, probably because it had a lot of peanut butter and I have become a peanut butter addict! My kids shared the ice cream flavor which actually has real gum in it.
I am so thrilled to recommend you all to plan a trip to Minnesota and go here for some great ice cream! :) Truly this child size was only $3.50... and most people can split it! :)
Nelson's also has a food challenge and since my husband was not on our road trip we are planning a time to go back so he can tackle the "Lumberjack" challenge. What exactly is the challenge? 5 softball size scoops of ice cream any flavor with three toppings! If you can finish the huge portion you get your picture on the "wall of fame!" So yes you better believe my husband is very excited for this challenge.
