Get the homemade ice cream

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

Wonderful homemade ice cream and a great place to meet friends in the evening. No seating because it's a walk up place but plenty of curbs and raised beds. Get a milkshake made with Moose Chocolate and coffee add in! Too thick to suck and served with an additional scoop.

The Chocolate Moose is a Bloomington institution, and luckily has been saved from closure by a new couple who took it over from the May family, who ran it for more years than I'd like to admit. Their soft serve is wonderful, and they serve special treats for all the little ones in your family, two-legged and four-legged alike. Their... More

A local favorite, and crowded on a hot summer day. As well it should be! Yummy. Also check out Food Truck Friday, when local food trucks occupy the parking lot and serve interesting stuff.

The Chocolate Moose has some great homemade ice cream, as well as soft serve concoctions that are worth the long line. The Moose Dream ice cream is my favorite, and I seem to get that every time. The best time to go is on Friday when they have Food Truck Friday with several food trucks parked in their lot, live... More
