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.

My husband and I were looking for some late night dessert, ran across this stand in downtown Bloomington, and decided to stop. Boy, were we glad that we did! They have homemade ice cream that is delicious! I refused to go home that weekend until we had stopped there a second time for more. The Chocolate Moose also had a... More

This little gem in Bloomington is under rated for its food. Their Italian burgers are wonderful! Nice little hunk of ground beef, kinda like a flattened meatball with a nice red sauce all on a bun. One of favorite summer afternoon escapades is to go the Chocolate Moose, grab and Italian sandwich, go to third street park and have a... More

I like ice cream but I don't consider myself a lover of ice cream. However, I love the ice cream at TCM! We visited on a warm summer night and the line was pretty long but it went very fast. With an impatient 4 year old this was very much appreciated. I've been to other places similar to TCM and... More

My family loved this place. And I believe it's been there for years. We went there twice during our recent visit to Bloomington, and it was just delicious.

Lines may be long at Chocolate Moose --- the wait is worth every moment. On our last visit to Bloomington, we brought home to Chicago 4 pints in a cooler. What a treat it has been! Chocolate Moose ought to sell their ice cream through outlets in other cities and states. Tastes so creamy. So full of rich flavor. Tastes... More
