Hi, I’m Marilyn McDonald! I own and operate The Igloo Ice Cream Shop along with my husband Trent. What started out as an empty lot next to my Subway in downtown Silver Lake, IN has now become a walk-up ice cream shop. I searched far and wide to find the absolutely best hand-dipped ice cream and I found it in Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream from Wisconsin. This ice cream is so creamy and tasty that I dare you not to say mmmmmmmm after your first bite!
We offer between 30 and 32 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 after spoonful. We also have specialties, including the Lil’ Eskimo for the kids.
My grandparents started the original “Igloo” on the north side of Silver Lake way back in 1958. So when we decided to build an ice cream shop we knew we had to keep the family name.
