Are you hungry for some ice cream? Tired of driving over 20 minues to get some?
Hi, I’m Marilyn McDonald. I own and operate The Igloo along with my husband Trent. What started out as an empty lot next to my Subway in downtown Silver Lake, Indiana has now become a walk-up ice cream shop. I searched far and wide to find the absolute best hand-dipped ice cream out there until I found Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream from Wisconsin. This ice cream is so creamy and so tasty, I dare you not to say mmmmmmmm after your first bite!
We offer between 20 and 24 hand-dipped flavors that we rotate periodically. You’ll have to try the Strawberry Cheesecake (one of my new favorites) or wait – the Ultimate Oreo, or maybe the Salted Caramel. I can’t choose! We offer wafer, sugar, and waffle cones, or you can to it in a dish like my husband Trent. We also offer great soft serve, sundaes, and shakes. The Avalanche is for those of you who just want ice cream and toppings, spoonful and spoonful. We also have specialties including the Lil Eskimo for the kids.
My grandparents started an ice cream shop on the north side of town way back in 1958 called “The Igloo” so we knew we had to keep the family name.
Come see us soon!
