Solid Block Ice in Ft Collins??

Does anyone know where in the Ft. Collins area that sells solid block ice? Not looking for crushed ice into a block. Thanks, for any help.

I haven't been able to find any in several years. I freeze 1 gal. jugs then cut away the top of the plastic jug to make cocktail ice or keep it intact for general cooling use.

Buy a flex form (, bags, and a chest freezer and start making your own. It's getting harder and harder to even find the crushed ice formed into a block variety. is online now   Reply With Quote

i have been using the big plastic tubs that salad mix comes in

I have used the same tub over 30 times with no sign of failure of the plastic

fill it half way..... freeze...... fill it to the top the next day... freeze

sit on counter upsidedown a few minutes....... ice falls out


yes........ it is a PIA if you want 50lbs one weekend
