The Ice Cream Pilar of Btown!

This spot has great ice cream and other food/snacks. If you love ice cream, the Chocolate Moose is a "must visit" location for your next trip to Bloomington. They even have vegan ice cream, which is awesome!

This ice cream stand always gets rave reviews so my family decided to try it. We had a $10 Groupon for $20 worth of ice cream. I had the Cinnamon Ice cream Shake and would rate it 3/5 stars. Not a bad flavor and the serving was generous. Just not fantastic. My dad had the Brown County Coffee (2.5/3 stars),... More

We visited here on a Sunday mid-afternoon. The night before when we drove by, there was a line winding through the parking lot, so Sunday afternoon was definitely the time to go! I tried the Moose Dream ice cream, and it was pretty tasty. However, it was just as tasty as any chocolate ice cream with peanut butter cups. The... More

Just get the small! They give you a lot of ice cream. It was good. The place is cute--a little walk up stand. Has food too like hotdogs and hamburgers. People kept coming by so there was always a line but the service was quick. The sign says its been in business since 1933. Worth a stop!

We visited late one night just before closing so we wouldn't miss the chance to get this fabulous ice cream. The staff was fabulous, patient, helpful and suggested items as well as described the flavors to everyone who asked. Selections were numerous & flavors were delish. The best ice cream around & much better than Blue Bell. You can't miss... More

A summer night, the desire--no--the need for ice cream. Our first time in Bloomington. The Chocolate Moose! Great choices, yummy ice cream. Success!

I have been here a few times the last few years and I would highly recommend the home made ice creams. Our favorite is the sweet cinnamon and butter pecan.

This is my first time in Bloomington. I am headed home to Colorado and stopped to visit a friend here. We absolutely love the homemade ice cream! This place is a gem.

The Chocolate Moose has been around for years in Bloomington and a well known place to stop for ice cream and a Spanish Burger or Coney Dog. There's not much parking and it's a walk up window
