I grew up in Bloomington and raised my kids in Monroe County. When my kids and grandchildren come for a visit, they ALWAYS ask for a visit to Chocolate Moose. They have the BEST Chocolate Malts and the children LOVE the candy eyes they will put on their ice cream cones. A weekly must in the summer time to cool... More

When you see people lined up outside their take out window once the weather gets warm, you know it is good. Their chocolate malts are so creamy. They are very creative with their flavor of ice and the have a light airy creamy desert called Dole Whip. Moderately priced and well worth the visit

Great tasting ice cream and food. You get good size portions. Usually a line waiting, so it must be good. Outdoor seating only. Has been here for years. Homemade food and ice cream is rich and creamy. A long list of flavors. I've seen people go back for a second round before they leave. Once you eat here you'll be... More

This is one of my favorite places in Bloomington. Homemade ice cream that makes you just want smile and give thanks there is goodness like this in this world. The Grasshopper flavor is awesome, standalone or in a shake, The Moose Rocks and its must do,on a Bloomington summer evening.

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.
