July was National Ice Cream month, and in honour of that most delicious of summertime treats, I set out to
eat my way through the month do some hardnosed investigative research to find the best new ice cream selections available.
For Date Night
To celebrate our first meal on our new deck, my husband and I recently ordered Indian take-out and had a great dinner…just the two of us! Highlights were some uninterrupted conversation, a relaxed mealtime and for dessert I pulled out the decidedly grown up Sobey’s Sensations by Compliments Tiramisu gelato. It’s a yummy authentic Italian gelato with real mascarpone cheese, ladyfingers soaked in coffee and coffee syrup swirls. Definitely delicious and one to keep all to yourself…hide it from the kids in the back of the freezer!
One for the Kids
As if you needed an excuse to take the kids to Dairy Queen for a Blizzard treat, August 12 is Miracle Treat Day, and all proceeds from every Blizzard sold in Canada on that day will go towards your local Children’s Miracle Network hospital. My favourite Blizzard order is a combination of Skor and Peanut Butter cups, but my kids are partial to “back by popular demand” Oreo…the Blizzard of the Month!
So there you have it; two new ice creams to try out, and a new reason to try out an old favourite. We’re only half-way through summer, so there’s no better time than now to indulge!
