All about Ice cream
Whether scooped from a bowl or piled high in a cone, ice cream is best enjoyed cool, creamy, and Canadian. See why ice cream is the perfect way to top off your next meal.
Ice cream is one of the world’s favourite desserts, and for good reason: nothing compares to its silky, smooth, refreshingly sweet taste. Whether you love it in cones or bowls, gelato or soft serve, chocolate, vanilla, or 1,000 other flavours, it’s always the right time for ice cream made with 100% Canadian cream and milk.
Read on to learn more about how ice cream is made, why there’s no substitute for real cream, and why people are always screaming about it (spoiler: because it’s so good). For a sweet treat that can’t be beat, ice cream truly stacks above the rest.
It starts with Canadian milk
The best ice cream comes from fresh and delicious milk. Collected at the dairy farm, it is brought to the creamery.
Adding sweet flavours
A tasty combination of cream, milk, sugar, and sometimes eggs is blended together, pasteurized, and homogenized. To this mixture, flavours are added – from simple vanilla to fruit, candy, or chocolate.
The perfect chill
A special freezing machine paddles the mixture, adding air while keeping ice crystals small. This ensures the ice cream freezes at just the perfect rate to create an expertly smooth and enjoyable texture.
Serving up the good stuff
Ice cream is packaged up and sent out to your local grocery stores and ice cream shops where you can pick out a delicious flavour that suits your fancy.
