Finally, spring seems to have arrived! And with the warm weather, comes Ice Cream stands! We are lucky in our area to have some wonderful, local, ice cream shops. From Pakenham to Carp over to Carleton Place, wherever you are located, there is ice cream waiting for you just around the corner!
The Almonte Ice Cream Shop: Located in the heart of downtown Almonte, the Almonte Ice Cream shop offers hard and soft serve cones, milkshakes and sundaes. The perfect location is central to the downtown shopping area and just steps from the picturesque Almonte falls! It’s located on the former Peterson’s Ice Cream lot, which many people will remember from days gone by. Check out their Instagram for some photos of their delicious offerings.
Scoops Ice Cream: This small, traditional, ice cream stand is located right around the corner from the main street in Pakenham. They offer a variety of sundaes, smoothies, and frozen yogurt as well as hard & soft serve options with an array of toppings to choose from!
Carp Custom Creamery: The Carp Custom Creamery is worth the drive out to Carp. Not only do they offer amazing hard ice cream in every flavour imaginable, but they have the most beautiful ice cream cakes! They truly have the most amazing flavour selection, and they offer their ice cream in 1L tubs so that you can stock your home freezer full.
The Cheddar Stop: This wonderful little store located in Carleton Place has a great selection of hard serve ice cream, delicious milkshakes and fudge! Yes, fudge! This is a great spot to pick-up an ice cream cone as well as do your gift shopping. They are also fully stocked with Balderson and Maple Dale cheeses, baked goods and a selection of spices, sauces and unique treats!
The Daily Scoop: A local favourite in Almonte! The Daily Scoop makes amazing (and huge!) hard serve ice cream cones. They also have chocolate and vanilla soft serve, 32 flavours of milkshakes, frozen yogurt and sundaes. The Daily Scoop not only serves ice cream but is known for their homestyle breakfasts!
There is nothing better than a delicious, ice cream treat, on those warm spring days. If you get a chance to try out any of our local spots, make sure to share your choice with me on Instagram and Facebook!
