Finding ice cream nachos in Iowa is easy – but only for a short time each year. This wild and wacky new way to eat a frozen treat became famous in the Hawkeye State when it was one of the most buzzed-about new food items at the Iowa State Fair. But now you don’t have to wait for the fair to roll around to indulge – especially if you live in the Council Bluffs area. Sugar Makery was already one of the most popular sweet shops in Iowa, thanks to its massive candy selection and its innovative popcorn flavors, but now the ice cream counter is taking center stage. They’re dishing up your favorite flavors in a whole new way, calling back to the classic Tex-Mex treat with a sweet twist. We can’t wait to head there this summer, and we bet you’ll feel the same!
