“Great old-time ice cream place with a modern twist”
Review of The Chocolate Moose - CLOSED

The Chocolate Moose reminds me of other old-time, local ice cream places we've visited in various cities but with a twist--you can get several different kinds of shakes, some made the traditional way and others with soda water, and homemade and vegan ice cream. All of us really enjoyed our traditional shakes, and my mother loved her homemade key lime ice cream.

I would definitely go back to try another shake concoction, and even though the line was long when we went it moved quickly.

This summer has been unbearably hot, but the folks at the Chocolate Moose will keep you cool and comfortable with their dreamy creamy concoctions. There's construction along Walnut Street right now, but don't let that scare you away, it's well worth a little gravel dust to get a taste of their "Sweet Cinnamon" (my personal favorite!) The servers are super nice, they'll let you taste any flavor you want, but it's still up to you to decide which one to indulge in. Enjoy!

A local sales clerk directed us to this place, otherwise we would never have found it. We were totally surprised to find a long line in a parking lot waiting for a chance to buy some ice cream. And it is indeed worthwhile! The Grashopper flavor was my favorite.

The ice cream flavor called Chocolate Moose is one the creamiest ice creams I've every had. We hear it's high in butter fat. Some of their ice creams, such as the flavor Chocolate Moose are made right there. If you want a place to sit indoors to eat, don't come here. But if you want a great creamy ice cream, this is the place.

Stopped here based on reviews and fact that it was walking distance from where we were staying. Actually went here 2 times. First night was about a 10 minute line, second night about same time only 2 in front of us. Need to be alert as cars pull into the lot and come close to the people. Good size portions of ice cream, especially for the Blizz. For those who have special needs, they also have soy, vegan, and organic offerings.

The hard serve ice cream was good, but we have had better. The Blizz was good, with plenty of serving of the mix in.
