Ice Cream Joe’s rules the west side of Lansing with a cornucopia of ice cream flavors.  I once spoke to the owner who said that his store used to be a Baskin Robins franchise but he chose to go independent and install an espresso machine.  The ice cream comes from Kaleidoscoops, which offers some interesting flavors, like Tootsie Roll.

The store also boasts a portfolio of custom decorated ice cream cakes.  My favorite was the Yoda cake.

Lansing seems to have the highest number of ice cream stores per capita of any city I’ve been in. Even better, many of them are independently owned. The crown jewel of ice cream in the Capitol area is the MSU Dairy Store. It’s on every MSU visitor’s list for a good reason. They sell “super-premium” ice cream at a great price while offering a plethora of flavors. This ice cream competes with (and possibly beats) Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream made in Madison, Wisconsin.

Some of my recommended flavors: Coconut Chocolate Almond, Pumpkin Spice, and Wildcat Crunch.

The store also sells cheeses, including a chocolate cheese (don’t bother). You can buy some flavors of ice cream by the half gallon.

If you’re on campus and craving ice cream, go here! If you’re not on campus and don’t mind driving over jaywalking students, go here!
