MooBears Ice Cream & Hotdogs
40 River Street Suit-A Ellijay, GA 30540 706-276-2611
Owners Carrie & Chris Durden's lifelong dream was to live in the mountains and in 2008 that dream came true.
But one thing was missing from that vacation feel for us and that was a place for good ice cream. The number one thing that our family has every night of our vacation is ice cream and it is the first that we search for in our vacation destination's. With our home now in Ellijay and it being a vacation destination for so many other families a second dream was developed. Our dream now was to have a hand-dipped ice cream shop in historic downtown Ellijay. After several years of planning our dream became reality with the opening of MooBears Ice Cream & Treatery. We have tasted several brands of ice cream and have worked hard to bring our customer's what we feel is the best ice cream selection from Ashby's Sterling, a creamery in Michigan.
We hope you enjoy the ice cream as much as we do! Moo!
