ISO: Dry Ice

Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone knows a place where I could but dry ice. I am going to use it to make a sorbet. I don't need a lot, maybe just 2 lbs or so. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    We've bought small amounts of dry ice from The Ice Man at Adelaide and Niagara. Really nice people.

      Hi crawfish. So ice man sells to the public? Do they have a minimum order quantity?

        10 lbs minimum.

          I'm sure we didn't order 10lbs. It was just enough to get a few quarts of Greg's roasted marshmallow ice cream to Maine. My husband just stopped by and asked. They even showed him how to blow up a plastic pop bottle with dry ice.

            10 lbs is not a lot. Dry ice is very dense. Call them and ask. It's 10 lbs.
