Ice Cream Taco at Sweet Rolled Tacos

It’s fun to watch and even more fun to eat! Each taco is frozen and rolled right in front of you then carefully placed in a waffle-cone shell and topped with even more sweetness!

Shave Ice from Famous Yeti Shave Ice

This is the only type of snow we truly enjoy in Greater Zion. It’s extra soft and there are plenty of flavors, toppings, and sizes to customize yours. Dare you to try the huge Famous Yeti.

Pie Shake from Lava Grill at Veyo Pool

This cool treat is made from a slice of pie from the popular Veyo Pies blended with ice cream. Not only is the shake fantastic, but so is the scenery. You’ll be eating this shake next to a beautiful pool located in an amazing canyon!

Lemonade Mint Supreme (Royden’s Lemonade) from Xetava

Pretty much the best drink of my life. This refreshing lemonade is blended with ice, vanilla, coconut, and fresh mint. When I say fresh I truly mean it; they pick the mint right there onsite while prepping it!

Fresh Fruit Smoothie at The Orange Peel

Wanting a healthier cool treat? Look no farther than the Orange Peel! This Best of State winner has so many good options, but the Big Red is my personal favorite!

Glacier from Larsen’s Frostop

Larsen’s has been in St. George since 1965! This drive-in restaurant serves burgers, fries, sandwiches, and frozen treats! The Glacier is a mix of soft-serve ice cream and a slush. They’ve got tons of slush flavors you’ll drool over!
