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!
