In our opinion, eating ice cream is an acceptable activity during any season of the year. We could eat it in even the coldest weather! However, there is something special about indulging in the sweet treat when the weather warms up. It seems to be a universal symbol for summer! If eating ice cream is one of your favourite Summer activities, keep reading for our top picks to get it in the area! Think we missed any? Let us know in the comments!
If the picture above doesn’t sell you (it has our mouths watering!), you’ll have to try Twisted Creamery‘s ice cream for yourself! This Port Moody business puts a unique spin on the classic frozen treat; they have both unique and classic flavours which they mix their “twist ins” with. After you make your choice, the friendly employees then freeze and roll the ice cream into a treat that’s unique each time! The possibilities are endless, and fans of Twisted Creamery can even submit their own flavour suggestions for a rotating weekly flavour!
This Port Moody food truck favourite is a must try in the warmer months! Check out their Instagram page for info on where to find them and a preview of the tasty treats!
