I'm 40 but I'm serious. This is the best ice cream I've had! Seriously, they make or get the ingredients locally and make their own ice cream! And yes the waffle cones are homemade as well, so it's like eating heaven in a cookie! We're here for a week, and know that we will be return customers!

We enjoyed an ice cream treat following lunch at nearby. This is the second time that we have been treated to this delicious fresh homemade ice cream!! So rich and creamy with fresh interesting flavors!!

Hell of a round trip though! The best ice cream ever. 4500 miles is a bit far to the ice cream parlour. When I visit Fernie this is always one of my go to places. This year's favourite is Disco Dan.

Unbelievably good ice cream!! Pretty awesome that they make it all there 👍🏽I had the crazy caramel fudge and it may have been the best ice cream cone of my life.

My raspberry patch. Is. To. Die. For. The fudge caramel (can't recall the exact name) was by far my sons' favourite while mine was My Raspberry Patch. Not too sweet, full of raspberry....

We stopped there when we were driving home to a Calgary from BC and wanted some ice cream and it was on the way. We were very happy we did it! Raspberry ice cream I had was the best I have ever tried!! To die for! I would drive to Ernie just to have that ice cream again. And next... More

We went here one evening after trying a local restaurant. There wasn't a ton of selection of ice cream and we found the price expensive for what we got. Two ice creams, single scoop were $11.50.

Thank you for thoughts. We currently have over 40 flavours available. For most people this is plenty to choose from. Most people appreciate the fact we handcraft our ice cream using premium ingredients and don't think $4/scoop is overpriced. We stand proudly behind our product. More
