    Blue Sky Creamery

    Is this place still open in Ames? Absolutely loved their black raspberry flavor, but their Valley West location closed and I can no longer find their pints in Hy-Vee. Do they sell it anywhere else in the Des Moines area?

    Re: Blue Sky Creamery

    I believe it is out of business now. I believe the one original owner sold his share to the other owner and then the other owner got in a bad car accident and the company sort of fizzled since.

    That's too bad. We went to the one at Valley West a few times. Obviously not recently, though

    Damn it. Black raspberry ice cream is a hard flavor to find too, at least without chocolate. Going to miss that stuff.

    You need to check out the Outside Scoop in Indianola.

    The triple berry is pretty much black raspberry. Makes all of his stuff from real fruit, and has oddball flavors. Last year he had buttered corn on the cob.

    Re: Blue Sky Creamery

    My fave was always Minnesota Mint. Not the funky green mint that other ice cream companies have with chocolate chips in it, just a cool, crisp refreshing mint flavor.

    Their website is still up:

    Unique Ice Cream Gifts, Personalized Corporate, Wedding, Shower Ice Cream Gifts Blue Sky Creamery - Blue Sky Creamery, Inc.

    R.I.P. Blue Sky, we will miss you.
