“Thick, luscious homemade ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I only found out about this place during my last semester at IU. I wish I had known about them sooner. Excellent homemade ice creams. Many flavors are thick and almost fudgy. A lot of interesting and creative flavors. I think they serve the best ice cream in Bloomington even though they're not as famous as Chocolate Moose, Coldstone, or Bruster's.

“Interesting choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Always worth a stop. Once had a 7 bean vanilla that they made for a wedding - best ice cream ever! I went for something a bit more wacky last time I was there and it wasn't so memorable.

“Great stuff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great ice cream and reasonably priced. They moved the long line quickly. The only drawback is they were out of the Coconut!

“Handmade ice dreams!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

every want to try blueberry and balsamic ice cream? no? well you should. cuz it's awesome. The handmade seasonal ice creams are one great reason to keep visiting this local place. It's one of the few places that has "ice cream" for the lactose-intolerant of us, as well. Walking distance from everything downtown, and it's open most of the year.

“Great Place for Ice Cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Great place no matter what the weather. I little off of Kirkwood (the main street) so you have to look for it a little but its well worth it...also has fat-free alternatives!
