Who wants Ice Cream?


I’m an admitted chocoholic but while I’ll eat the occasional piece of chocolate I rarely eat desert or have things like ice cream. In fact, most years I can count on one hand – often one finger the amount of times I have ice cream!

It’s not that I don’t like ice cream. I do, I just don’t love it enough to eat it regularly. Lucky for me I happen to live very close to what I consider one of the best Ice Cream Parlors and manufacturers in the city of Toronto. Oh and I went there last Friday!

The shop is called Maple Leaf Dairy Ice Cream Parlor or as it’s locally known St. Clair Ice Cream. They have a good variety of flavors of ice cream, sherberts and frozen yogurts. I just always get ice cream when I go there, but my husband tried the frozen yogurt this last visit.

Yes, I said this last visit. We went to the ice cream shop on Friday. My husband had left me sitting in a hot car waiting for him for a half hour and when he finally came back I was mad and I’d decided that I wanted to cool down and I wanted ice cream. So … off to Maple Leaf Dairy we went.

As I said above I’m a chocoholic … so I decided to try the Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream. Chris tried the Raspberry Frozen Yogurt. Each of our cones were “Single Scoop” servings in a waffle cone. Get a load of what they think is a single scoop …

This is actually the second time this year that I went to this ice cream parlor – and only the second time I’ve had ice cream this year. The last time I mistakenly asked for a double scoop and you wouldn’t believe how big that was! These single scoops alone are huge. Chris was already digging into his when I decided to take the picture that’s why his Raspberry one is a little smaller than my Chocolate fudge brownie one.

Oh and they were only about $3.50 or so each. I think that’s a pretty good price for the amount of ice cream and or frozen yogurt we got. I was full for hours. We didn’t have dinner that night until quite late.

If you’re in Toronto’s East end and have a craving for ice cream go to 2861 Danforth Ave. and Kelvin Ave. and you won’t be disappointed. Bring your appetite!

    I’m also an ice cream fan and I also love chocolate but I usually eat ice cream as much as possible once in two weeks because they say it’s not that healthy but I still want to eat it so what I do is I just control my intake of it.

    Hi Tricia,

    I stumbled across your blog via UrbanSpoon, which linked this post to the *other* Maple Dairy Bar — in Jackson’s Point, ON on the south shore of Lake Simcoe. Although it is a different owner, the ice cream she serves is St. Clair’s as well. The upshot is that if you want to get out of the city, hit the beach, AND still enjoy the best ice cream around, come on up to the Point!

    All the best,

      Yes I realized after a while that UrbanSpoon was linking to a different Ice cream bar than the one I was writing about. I guess I’ll have to make my own entry on Urbanspoon and then relink – although the one that you are discussing sounds good too. :)
