Iowa native Alex Carter opened up walk-up window ice cream shop Black Cat Ice Cream just over a year ago in downtown Des Moines. The past summer has seen Carter struggling to keep up with the ice cream demand of the people being the only person making and serving ice cream except for his mother.
Despite the ice cream hype dying down due to the increasingly cold weather, Carter is still rolling out different flavors of ice cream on sale every week. He is also continuing to experiment with flavors for upcoming holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Black Cat Ice Cream is located at 1501 Grand Avenue. Visit their Facebook page here as they update their flavors on sale every week.
