Soon the ice cream was sold in Remsen and Alton.

If 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.”
