What's my travel motto? I Scream for Ice Cream!
For reasons unknown, my early childhood years were dominated by maple walnut, as repulsive a flavor ever I tried. Did everyone else have parents are cruel as mine?
Things perked up considerably with the arrival of the Ice Cream Barn.
The Nova Scotia Ice Cream Barn Phenomenon
(To find my favourite, be sure to drive from New Brunswick to Nova Scotia along Highway 366, as opposed to the main highway. Along the way, you will encounter the tiny community of Tidnish, whose lone general store boasts an “inside ice cream bar” that has a dirt cheap “happy hour”!)
Amazing Ice Cream Around The World
I love to seek out fancy homemade ice cream in small communities, from popular brands such as Cow’s Homemade PEI ice cream (in the fancy decorated cones!) and Roselani’s in Hawaii to scoops of roasted marshmallow and a scoop of rhubarb ginger on Ontario's Wolfe Island. I’m not too snobby to go for popular franchises – Laura Secord, Ben & Jerry’s, and Baskin Robbins are old friends of mine. I've even toured the Ben & Jerry’s factor in Vermont and can highly recommend the experience!
No Ice Cream? No Problem!
Life is too short to diet on vacation! Do you have any secret ice cream places around the world?
My favourite ice cream barn flavors: Tiger, Cherry Vanilla, Cotton Candy, Orange Pineapple, Bubble Gum, and my absolute favourite flavor in the world: Moon Mist! An “out of this world” combination of banana, grape, and bubble gum. Please, I beg of you to try it out! I also beg Scotsburn to bring back their peppermint ice cream!
As always, I welcome and encourage your comments. What's the strangest ice cream flavor you've ever tried?
