This Sugary-Sweet Ice Cream Shop In Montana Serves Enormous Portions You’ll Love
In Montana, people love to joke that summer is construction season — but those of us with a sweet tooth know that it is, in fact, ice cream season. And while we love every Treasure State-born ice cream shop we find, today we want to give a shout-out to the Big Dipper, where you’ll never be judged for ordering a dessert the size of your head.
These days, you'll find locations in Missoula, Billings, and Helena.
There's even an ice cream truck in Missoula that you'll see at most Missoula Downtown Association event and various other local festivals.
Big Dipper isn't new — they've been helping Montanans satisfy their ice cream cravings since 1995.
They were serving creative flavors long before it was cool (pun intended).
The ice cream is fresh, handcrafted goodness you can buy by the scoop or pint...
...and you're more than welcome (and highly encouraged) to order all you can handle.
The specialty sundaes are generously portioned and amazing.
This is the Salted Starship Brownie sundae, featuring locally made brownies and salted caramel sauce.
Even if you order a classic cup or cone, you can expect good-sizes portions here.
Big Dipper is so delicious, it has actually earned national attention.
From making an appearance on Good Morning America to being chosen as one of America's best ice cream shops by USA Today and Food and Wine Magazine, this ice cream is pretty famous.
If you haven't treated yourself to any Big Dipper ice cream this summer, don't worry — there's still time.
Although hours vary, all three locations are open daily.
Big Dipper ice cream is second to none. No wonder it is part of our delicious
Montana ice cream trail.
