With 100+ flavors and eight Wisconsin parlors, Chocolate Shoppe supplies over 400 small restaurants and scoop shops across the country. Producing super-premium ice cream — aka with an overrun of less than 50%(which decreases the amount of air, creating smoother and richer ice cream), — the 14% butterfat treat encompasses its slogan, “You want nutrition, eat carrots.”
All 15 spots on the scoopenger hunt are connected to the ice cream shop. Whether they supply mix-ins for the dairy goodness or are one of the eight shops, each one plays a role in ice cream creation.
Grab a card at any scoop shop + stop at each community location for a stamp. Three stamps earn you a goodie bag, while all 15 get you Shoppe swag and the chance to win ice cream for the year. Locations include:
Greenbush Bakery | 1402 Regent St. | Donut maker for the annual ice cream for breakfast day.
