Blue Bunny Ice Cream
Blue Bunny ice cream is an
American based ice
cream company. The company is based in Le Mars,
Iowa. The company started in 1925, when Wells' Dairy, Inc
wanted to started selling ice cream in Le Mars. Soon the ice

to sell ice cream they held a name the ice cream contest and
Blue Bunny was the winning name. Blue Bunny sells its ice

is the largest producer of all variety
of ice cream novelty items in the world.
In year 1994, Le Mars was
proclaimed to the Ice Cream Capital of the World because Wells’
Dairy, makers of the Blue Bunny brand ice cream, produces
more and quality ice cream than any other single company.
It was founded in 1913, Wells’ Dairy today boasts of

you ever visit Le Mars, you could tour a visitor’s center
that features a facsimile of the blue bunny ice cream production
line and a video presentation that tells the whole story
of ice cream from ancient times to the present.
The video could probably be
very interesting, but we wouldn’t know because we were
busy sitting in the booth next door at the Blue Bunny
Ice Cream Parlor, enjoying cups full of the Mocha
Almond Fudge and Toffee Temptation as well as an expertly-made
chocolate soda. If you have a special fondness for any ice
cream, you need to know about this place!
The ice cream parlor was at
1920s-style sweet shop with a soda-fountain counter and high-back
booths. The confectionery menu is very huge, including cones
and cups, malts and shakes, sundaes and sodas, floats and
phosphates, banana splits and also slices of ice
cream cake. The women who concoct these extravagant
sweets are a lot super-friendly who seems genuinely to enjoy
the looks of ecstasy that the work inspires. “It’s
so much fun to work here,” one of them confided in us.
“Ice cream is always a happy thing.”
Blue Bunny has developed two
kinds of the Star Wars products including the Darth Vader
Face Bar and also three different Lights saber Bomb Pops including
red, green and blue to represent the various need light sabers
used in all Revenge of the Sith. The Light saber Bomb Pops
come in any Sour Blue Raspberry and Sweet Cherry with sour
inner cores, while the frozen Darth Vader confection is also

cherry bubblegum eyes.
Even though the ice
cream trucks will not be playing the Imperial
March as they drive through your neighborhood and you still
might spot one of the specially-decorated Revenge of the Sith
ice cream trucks with the Vader-themed decals.
