Childhood, summer and fun may not be canceled after all.

After much public outcry, the city of Boulder has decided to rethink its ban on ice cream at public pools, the Daily Camera reports.

Boulder district services manager Alison Rhodes told the Camera that they’re considering “healthier ice cream options” and enlisting the help of taste-testers Andrew and Thomas Gafford, the 7- and 6-year-old brothers who took the policy to task in the Camera.

Don’t worry, Andrew won’t let unpalatable healthy ice cream slide. He told the Camera that to earn his approval, the new option “would probably have to taste like ice cream.”
