    OMG, even in the winter, I can't stop eating it.

    Yesterday I went to Film Buff and had the most deliciously light pistachio ice cream in a waffle cone. Sitting outside the shop, completely enjoying my ice cream cone while Leslieville moms wheeled their kids quickly past in their strollers - their kids looking back sadly and then yelling "Mom! I want an ice cream!"

    Ha! sucker.

    Today I will see what new flavors are on tap. Perhaps they will have Pomegranate Sherbet again. That would be excellent in a waffle cone.

    I love icecream.

    A tip to new moms: buy your kid an ice cream once in a while! Geez.

    There is a wicked Honey Lavender ice cream down at Natalie Rose in the summer... Sounds weird, but it is absolutely delish.

    Ice cream is the reason I could never be a vegan.

    Try Greg's Ice Cream at Spadina and Bloor. The Roasted Marshmallow flavour is incredible and unique!

    Greg's is good.
    In the commercial variety, Gelato Fresco's 0BF chocolate is my guilt free pleasure.

    I would like to add coconut made frozen deserts - ie dairy free / soy free . Just as creamy (if not creamier) then ice cream. So Delicious , Purely Decadent and Cia Belo (sp?) all make really good stuff.

    can't find it up here! been looking everywhere.

    the soy stuffs not bad and i can eat sorbet and some frozen yogurts (the expensive fancy kinds of course LOL)

    i do have my own ice cream maker though! I make all kinds of delicious concoctions that are me-friendly and am considering trying my hand at a coconut one this summer - the skim-lactose-free milk ones just come out too icy a lot of the time.

    My girls LOOOOVE ice cream and they and the hubby are all over the new PC ice-cream-shop flavours - Rainbow and Tiger Tail currently in the freezer along with Key Lime Sorbet and the last of the loads-of-buttertart one. I'm a fan of the PC ice creams for them because they are just that - cream is the first ingredient, not that modified crap.

    My gf makes ice-cream in her Kitchen Aid ice cream maker attachment ... it's outstanding. She too is a big fan of lavender ice cream and makes it regularly. She also makes a great cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg ice-cream varieties from the spices we picked up in Grenada on vacation.

    I've complained about this before but I'll say it again. Ed's Ice Cream really bothers me with some of their flavours. Often all they do is make a base ice cream with no flavour and then swirl some stuff in to it and declare it a flavour. Blueberry Pie is simply a pie swirled in. Rum Raisin is rum soaked raisins swirled in. I find this kind of weak. Their raspberry white chocolate is awesome.

    I need a pistachio ice cream fix now...

    That candy store on danforth by logan has kwartha ice cream.

    Kwartha Ice Cream is good but Maypole is way better IMO

    Dolce was giving away free small gelato ice creams until July 31 when you brought in the coupon they gave you in your mailbox. Some people never bothered to open the coupon and trashed them in the recycle bin. Lucky for me and my man, we ended up scoring 10 free small gelato ice cream's. Dedication and obsession for ice cream of all sorts, I tell ya.

    I can't even own it in the house or I eat the entire thing in a matter of 2 days, so I get excited when we get to go out for ice cream!

    That's the last food I want to eat before I die.

    There used to be a really nice gelato shop on Mount Pleasant, just south of Eglinton... I wonder if it is still there?
