Still on the topic of our day trip to Whistler … Polly, being the reluctant organizer of our day trip, told us that we absolutely must go for ice-cream in Whistler. Frankly, I did not understand what the fuss was.
The place she brought us to was COWS. Polly did warn us that there will be a line-up at the ice-cream shop … indeed there was. It was a long queue too. The line stretches all the way out the door. Wow, this must be one awesome ice-cream.
We bought a double scoop cone. We get choices of cones and selected the one with the most stuff on it which is the chocolate rimmed with peanuts. For the gelato, we selected two different flavours: the Mocha Almond Fudge and the Messie Bessie — we love any flavour with chocolates.
It was heavenly. The ice-cream were creamy and rich, indeed one of the best ice-cream we ever tried.
Got home and checked out their website,
http://cows.ca and found out the following info about their ice-cream.
“COWS ice cream is SUPER PREMIUM, because we use cream with a very high butterfat content of approximately 16%. Our ice cream is mixed slowly so that it contains very little air – just enough to prevent the ice cream from freezing into a solid block of ice! The result is our creamy, high-density COWS ice cream that melts slowly in your mouth, allowing you to truly savour the taste. Some other ice cream producers mix their ice cream at a high speed and inject air to increase volume. Finally, we use the finest ingredients available to make our ice cream. All of our ice creams contain fresh cream, real eggs, and sugar. Today, we make 32 + flavors to delight the taste buds of true ice cream lovers! As we introduce each new flavor, we carefully select only the finest ingredients available. For instance, our Strawberry ice cream is made with fresh Prince Edward Island berries, our Chocolate ice cream is made with the finest cocoa imported from Holland, and our Vanilla ice cream is made with pure natural vanilla.”
