The Tiny Shop In Iowa That Serves Homemade Ice Cream To Die For

Iowa has so many amazing ice cream shops that it’s nearly impossible to pick a favorite, but The Outside Scoop in Indianola certainly ranks among the best in the state.

The Outside Scoop truck runs during the spring, summer, and fall, with opening day for the 2017 season beginning March 17th! The truck can be found at many local events, and it makes daily stops in several locations:

Tuesdays and Fridays: Pappajohn Sculpture Park in Des Moines, open 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Wednesdays: Regency Business Park in West Des Moines, open 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Thursdays: East Village in downtown Des Moines, open 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

There are occasional Saturday appearances at Water Works Park between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. They make random stops around town, as well as in Ankeny, Norwalk, and Carlisle during the summer. You can track the location of the truck on The Outside Scoop Facebook page or on Twitter @TheOutsideScoop.
