Bagged crushed ice

xcorvis Feb 7, 2011 07:04 PM

Any tips on where I can get bags of crushed or small chip ice for a party? Crushing a lot of ice by hand is a real pain.

    I'd ask at your local supermarket. If I recall correctly, both the Rainbow and Lund's in Uptown (my nearest grocers) carry crushed ice.

      I haven't seen any at my local Cub, but I'll try some other grocery chains. Thanks!

        I've tried 5 nearby grocery stores, my usual liquor stores and a couple convenience stores, and none of them had it or even knew anyone that carried it. Any suggestions for Saint Paul locations that are known to have crushed ice?

        After calling about 20 places and having no luck at all, I found the Ace Ice Co in Minneapolis sells 35 lbs bags for pretty cheap.
