Our Story ...
Bauder's ice cream is showcased at the Iowa State Fair. We have participated in the Iowa State Fair since 1986. The featured item available only at the fair is a "Bauder peppermint bar". This treat has an Oreo crust, 2 inches of ice cream, topped by hot fudge and cut into ice cream sandwiches. This is the premier item of the fair noted by their coverage in Gourmet magazine twice, as the food you must try at the Iowa State Fair.
The tradition of how Bauders has succeeded is by doing things the old way. We greet our patrons by their name and still answer all phone calls personally (no answering machine). We even offer free delivery-Bauders is still here because we have a superior product and we're accessible to our customers â€“ all of this can be noted by our loyal following for almost 100 years!!!!
The pride and notoriety of Bauders is its famous homemade ice cream, made right at 3802 Ingersoll Avenue. People Magazine voted Bauder's Fresh Strawberry one of the best in the country in 1984. The ice cream has also been written up in three different issues of Gourmet Magazine, along with several different national and local publications.
