I knew that, once again, Taste of the Town readers would come through!
In response to Jane Kidd, a former Michigander who's looking for Superman ice cream for her daughter, whom she describes as "very pregnant," fellow readers Janice Giannosa and Charlee Rodriguez each produced a small-town source: Grandma Daisy's Candy & Ice Cream Parlor in Boulder City and the Inside Scoop in Overton.
The ice cream is called Scooper Hero and is made by Blue Bunny, and a call confirmed it's in the requisite colors of bright blue, red and yellow.
Grandma Daisy's is at 530 Nevada Way, on one of Boulder City's main drags; the Inside Scoop is at 395 S. Moapa Valley Blvd. on Overton's only main drag. ...
