National ice cream day

I love ice cream in all its forms. In a cone, in a cup, in a milkshake, in a float. Deep-fried. In sandwiches. On a stick. Dipped in chocolate. Whatever way you can conceive of serving ice cream, I’ve probably had it that way and I’ve probably really enjoyed it.

I love it all. So in order to celebrate this glorious day I thought I’d share a few photos of me enjoying my favourite treat.

Me, just before I dove into some delicious soft-serve from The Cone, an ice-cream-shaped food truck in Edmonton, AB.

Me, just prior to enjoying two scoops of goat cheese and fig from Kid Sister, a shop in Victoria’s Fan Tan Alley that sells locally made ice cream.

 

 

 

Me, teetering on the edge of the Pacific enjoying “The Danny”: soft-serve topped with a scoop of one of the sixteen flavours Jackson’s Ice Cream Float offers.

 

Me, just before cracking through the chocolate-y shell of this locally made drumstick from a teeny tiny gelato shack in Stanley Park.

 

Me, getting ready to devour my first dipped cone from Chocolats Favoris on Government Street in Victoria, BC (it was strawberry soft-serve dipped in cookies & cream–yum).

Me, pleased with Cold Comfort ice cream. I’ll definitely be buying a pint (or two or three) from this place in the future!
