Moose Tracks is a branded flavor of ice cream owned and licensed by Denali Flavors Inc.[1][2] that is manufactured by different companies under various brands. The Original Moose Tracks product description is as follows, "vanilla ice cream with peanut butter cups and famous Moose Tracks fudge".[3][4]

There are many iterations of Moose Tracks, including chocolate, mint, and brownie. Light varieties of the ice cream are produced, which have fewer calories compared to full-calorie versions.[3] Additionally, a frozen yogurt variety is produced.[5] The brand's mascot is the Moose Tracks moose.[1]

The first scoop of Moose Tracks was tasted in July 1988. The name “Moose Tracks” came from a mini golf course in Marquette, Michigan located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, which was right down the street from Jilbert's Dairy,[6] the first ice cream shop to carry Original Moose Tracks.[7]


Many different brands license the Moose Tracks flavor including Strohs, Belmont (ALDI), Market Pantry (Target),[8] Private Selection (Kroger Co.),[9] Dean's,[10] Signature Select (Safeway/Albertsons),[11] Mayfield,[12] Kawartha Dairy Company,[13] and Publix.[14]


In addition to the Original Moose Tracks flavor, there are over a dozen other varieties of Moose Tracks:[4][15]

Denali Flavors also licenses several other flavors:[16]
