ice cream party

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Let’s be real. Is ice cream ever a bad idea? We don’t think so. In fact, we’d like to think it’s completely acceptable 365 days a year (366 if it’s one of those special Leap Years).

With that said, an ice cream party turns into an absolute must-have for a few special occasions.

Let’s get on with them!

Birthday Parties

Birthday cake, shmirthday cake, right? It’s time to take a newer twist on your birthday dessert. After all, when was the last time you saw someone stoked on a boring sheet cake?

Whether you’re turning 5 or 95, you’re never too old or too young for an ice cream party. Besides, what better way to celebrate another year of life than with your favorite sweet treat?

Take your birthday party extravaganza to the next level by offering your guests handmade ice cream sandwiches, mega shakes, or classic popsicles and treats.

We think this is the perfect treat if you have an outdoor party or pool bash either in a home-based or location-specific party (like at the park).

Think of it this way: less planning, organization, and commitment on your end. You just hire out the truck, and the rest is up to the company. Simple as that!

Weddings

They say that people go to weddings for two things: an open bar and the food.

Chances are, you’ve already planned out your alcoholic beverages and your meal catering services. Have you thought about adding in a unique dessert that everyone’s guaranteed to love?

Attending a wedding isn’t cheap, especially after you factor in the cost of travel, transportation, attire, and gifts. If you’re in the bridal party? The price jacks up considerably more- upwards to a thousand dollars for your day.

That’s why it’s so important for you to make your guests feel special and appreciated on your happy day.

WIth many weddings extending several hours to half a day, it’s important to keep them fueled on tasty foods throughout the party.

Your wedding is a perfect occasion for an ice cream party. It’s time effective, stress-free, and budget-friendly! It’s also a creative dessert- people will be talking about long after the wedding day is over.

Plus, imagine the joy and surprise on everyone’s faces when the ice cream truck rolls around! It’s that same look of sheer happiness children have when the truck cruises down their street.

And, in case you were wondering if you had to choose between a traditional wedding cake and an ice cream, don’t worry! There’s no rule that says you can’t have both, and we bet most guests would be happy to have their choice.

Corporate Events

Are you in charge of coordinating your company’s next corporate event? Do you have any input on the menu and budget? If so, skip the traditional affair and make it way more memorable and interesting for your colleagues.

When it comes to planning a killer corporate event, you want to make sure that you’re keeping your colleagues entertained and appreciated. Otherwise, it’ll feel like just another work meeting obligation.

With that in mind, you’ll also likely need to adhere to a strict budget. Fortunately, an ice cream party fits into those requirements, with most packages costing less than $5 per employee.

Lighten up the mood by kicking it old-school with everyone’s favorite ice cream. Who knows? Maybe you’ll learn that your boss and you equally love the same flavor.

Graduation Parties

Got a high school graduate in the house? What about a college or graduate school graduation?

No matter the occasion, it’s always a great idea to celebrate a special graduation with a special ice cream treat. Since these events usually take place near May or June, it’s optimal weather for your favorite ice cream.

Graduation is a time of celebration- it took the person a lot of time, work, and discipline to get to that milestone.

And, with more and more people throwing extravagant, large events for graduation, incorporating ice cream is a great way to keep all your guests entertained.

Grand Openings

If you’re in charge of a business, you may be considering the virtues of officially opening your doors with a grand opening.

Grand openings serve many exciting purposes. They generate buzz and media publicity around your store, and they can attract plenty of new customers. Plus, they’re great for the community, as they help you establish yourself and network with other small businesses.

With that said, you want to take your company’s grand opening seriously. It needs to be fun, dynamic, and compelling- otherwise, you’re not only wasting time and money, but you’re giving your business a pretty bad impression.

And, let’s be real: just like with most events, food is absolutely going to be your selling point. After all, no matter who your target customers are, they’re going to want to eat.

You can incorporate your ice cream party as a surprise, or you can build hype by announcing it on your flyers and social media.

No matter how you choose to do it, people will eat the ice cream and they will be introduced to your company. Talk about a win-win for everyone.

And, what to

While the snow and cold are still lingering spring is just around the corner. That means, in a short period of time it will be perfect weather for ice cream.

Of course, not just any ice cream will do. There are so many amazing ice cream shops in Canada that it’s worth a bit of a road trip to find the best.

Here are seven places to get ice cream in Canada.

1. Sweet Jesus

Sweet Jesus is one of the best places to get ice cream. They have several locations, mostly in Toronto. However, there are at least seven new locations opening up in 2018. They even have a location in Baltimore, Maryland, in the US.

Their goal is to combine, “conceptual thinking with high-quality ingredients and products,” so that you can taste something unlike anything else you’ve ever tasted.

They also make cakes and even their own beer like the Mocha Marshmallow Stout with 6.2% alcohol. Those who might be offended by their name needn’t be. The name derives from the exclamation of enjoyment shouted when someone tries their ice cream.

It’s definitely worth stopping by one of their locations to check out if their flavors make you declare, “Sweet Jesus!”

2. Moo Moos

Moo Moos ice cream is still made by hand. While it’s still a small shop located in St. John’s, New Foundland, it’s worth taking the trip.

They sell premium scoops of ice cream, pies, cakes, cookies, and tubs. They even make their ice cream at their location.

Best of all, if you have food allergies, this is one of the safest places to get ice cream. Their knowledgeable and helpful staff can help you avoid your triggers.

If you decide to stop by, finding their store should be easy, it looks exactly like a black and white cow.

3. Rain or Shine Ice Cream

Rain or Shine Ice Cream is the best places to get ice cream if you’re looking to do a good deed and get free ice cream. They’ve teamed up with the Canadian Blood Services to offer a “Pint for a Pint”. Donate a pint of blood, get a pint of ice cream for free.

They make their ice cream in-house using fresh, natural, and sustainable ingredients that have been sourced locally. They’re also known for putting some interesting ingredients like beer in their ice cream.

Their flavors change quick, especially their seasonal flings. Stop by now if you want to try a sample of their Rosemary Olive Oil with Candied Pine Nuts.

If a cone isn’t your thing, you can also get sundaes, milkshakes, and cakes at Rain or Shine, and they even cater events.

4. Dutch Dreams

Dutch Dreams has been part of the Toronto community for over 25 years. During that time, it’s consistently been one of the best places to get ice cream for the whole family.

Their store was fashioned in the Dutch style to pay homage to their family ancestry. Walking into the store is akin to walking into a child’s fantasy and it’s a fun place to check out for tourists and locals alike.

They have passed down their pancake and waffle recipes for generations and it’s all made in-house. Being culturally aware, they also offer 32 flavors of ice cream that are kosher.

For those who can’t or don’t eat ice cream, they also offer an assortment of sherbet flavors.

5. Homestead Ice Cream

Homestead Ice Cream has been a fixture in Saskatoon, SK, since 1978. But they also have an ice cream truck they can rent out to you for events.

They make ice cream, sundaes, novelties, and yogurt. Each of them is made in small batches on site.

There are 40 varieties available at one time but they rotate through 300 different flavors. They even have a great flavor called “Flower Power” that’s lavender flavored.

If you’re throwing a party, don’t forget to try their dish called, “The Dogs’ Breakfast”. It includes 14 scoops of ice cream, 6 sundae toppings, 2 bananas, cookie crumbs, sprinkles, nuts, whipped cream and a cherry.

6. Cows

Cows is located on Prince Edward Island and is considered to be one of the best places to get ice cream on the island. That’s because the cow jokes are endless. They even sell items like t-shirts, pajamas, and beach towels with their name on it.

Their flavors are both tasty and whimsical with flavors available like Bessie’s Pumpkin Patch and Cows Moochiato. They also have flavors like vanilla for those with more traditional tastes.

For those not interested in ice cream, they also make and sell their own chocolates, gift baskets, and preserves.

Don’t fret if you don’t live near PEI, they have 11 locations altogether, including one in Beijing, China. But even if you’re not located in Canada or Beijing, you can still enjoy Cows ice cream. They’re willing to ship anywhere in Canada, the US, and even worldwide.

If it seems a bit pricey to have ice cream shipped to you from Canada, you still have an option to save. If you sign up for their newsletter, you’ll receive a 20% discount.

7. One of the Best Places to Get Ice Cream is Mega Cone

Mega Cone is one of the best places to get ice cream because they come to you. Also, their ice cream trucks offer a wide variety of amazing and tasty ice cream treats.
