Read the reviews. If you have never been to this Bloomington staple, ask yourself: "Why Not?" Hate Ice Cream? No excuse, there are other things there. Don't like lines? Find an alternative time and get over yourself. Too proud for a little shack on the street? Man you will miss some fine things in life including all the street food... More

We stopped by in the afternoon, no line at that time. The Raspberry, Mint C/C and Vanilla was very good. All very rich tasting, enjoy.

Loved the homemade ice cream! The grasshopper is amazing! We went on a Friday night , they were having food truck Friday in the parking lot and we were entertained with live music! They offer several types of ice cream including vegan. Very good ice cream a must try!

Our daughter is a senior at IU so we've tried everything in Bloomington by now. Tragically we just discovered Chocolate Moose this year. I come from a long line of dairy farmers and my grandfather had an ice cream parlor where he made his own from scratch-I know my ice cream. Chocolate Moose has good flavor, great creamy feel and...

I have been coming to The Chocolate Moose since I was a kid. Since the last owner change, there have been a few changes. But it's still one of my favorite ice cream stops. They have lots of variety. Shakes, malts, blizzes, sundaes, homemade ice cream, soft serve, ice cream sandwiches, vegan options, and much more. Small children can ever... More

This is an awesome go-to spot for delicious homemade ice cream. I love it!! A true part of Bloomington culture and a must stop! Been so many times we are starting to get creative. Last trip I had a hot fudge sundae with lemon custard ice cream - WOW!! You will not be disappointed. Long lines go fairly quick and... More

This ice cream is so thick and rich and has so much flavor. There is always a line and it is well worth the wait. I love the blackraspberry, browncounty coffee and of course you have to try the original chocolate. They even have small cones for your furry friends. I have not ever had a flavor I did not... More

Line was 25-30 people on Sat. night, so came back on Sunday afternoon. We all had the homemade ice cream and it was excellent. The cinnamon was especially pungent. The ice cream pricing was reasonable, though the shakes and blizz's are another story. I'll definitely return on my next trip to Bloomington.
