    23 Places To Get The Most Mind-Blowing Ice Cream In Canada

    Two scoops, please.

    'Tis the season, so we asked our fellow Canadians where to get the most unique, creamy, and downright dreamy ice cream across our great land. Without further ado, here's what they said:

    1. Kawartha Dairy — Bobcaygeon, Ontario

    Facebook: KDIceCream

    "Kawartha Dairy makes the best ice cream! Everyone needs to visit the factory because they serve massive scoops for a decent price! You can also find parlours almost anywhere in Central/Southern Ontario and they sell it at some grocery stores."

    2. COWS — Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

    Facebook: COWSIceCream

    "Everyone knows it's COWS in PEI. The perfect East Coast ice cream shop with glorious flavours like PEI Blueberry, Moo Henry, Wowie Cowie, and Don Cherry. Not to mention all the hilarious cow pun clothing. I still have a 'moo moo lemon' shirt from years ago."

    3. Tickleberry's — Okanagan Falls, British Columbia

    4. Sweet Jesus — Toronto, Ontario

    5. Cold Comfort — Victoria, British Columbia

    6. Slickers Ice Cream — Bloomfield, Ontario

    Facebook: slickersicecream

    "It can't get better than Slickers Ice Cream. You can watch them make it at their factory down the street and they use real ingredients. For example, their Campfire flavour has roasted marshmallows in it and their Apple Pie flavour has (I think the number is) 30 whole apple pies in each batch. It's incredible. My mom and I have driven over an hour to Bloomfield just for ice cream."

    7. La Diperie — Montréal, Quebec

    "They only serve vanilla soft serve, but you can choose any chocolate dip and topping (my favourite is Hot Pepper with Peanuts or Lavender with Hazelnuts)."

    8. Moo Moo's — St. John's, Newfoundland

    9. Dairy Cream — Mississauga, Ontario!Banana split/zoom/mainPage/imagehne

    "This place is legendary and only open during the summer. It's only open until 11pm but the place is FULL all the time with huge lines. Maybe that's because they have 25 different sundae flavours, use real cream and actual fruit, have soft serve AND scoop ice cream, smoothies and the most delicious thing on earth: funnel cake. Not to mention the really fun and unique atmosphere of tons of people happily chilling at picnic tables in the middle of the night eating ice cream!"
