This was our first time trying COWS and we loved it! The ice cream comes in numerous flavours and was very fresh, creamy and delicious.

I love ice cream and if you are an ice cream lover you just have to try this one as it is the best in my opinion. Cows also sell the famous Cows T- shirts a must if you are a tourist on PEI. They also have blank cards and stuffed Cow toys. You can als have you pic taken... More

We love Cows ice cream. We were here in August and loved it. We will definitely be returning. We would love to do the tour at the Charlottetown location. A bit expensive but totally worth it. Only down side was the long lines. We will be returning again next year!

And the t-shirts have the best logos! Doesn't matter what flavor, this is the best ice cream treat on the island!

We literally ran in the door with only 10 minutes to spare before they closed. The Wowie Cowie ice cream with hot fudge as a sundae topper is awesome! Wish we had gotten there earlier & sampled ALL the flavors!

what can I say . On all our visits to PEI we eat COWS icecream. Cannot understand why they get bad reviews on your sight. Have never had a bad ice cream...and I would say one of the very best ice cream we have evr tasted

Reminds me of my youth. Huge servings. Rare to have value and quality in cavendish. Ask for sample if not sure of variety. Staff attentive, quick. Be careful of double scoops unless your hungry.

I came here in June and got a one-scoop in a waffle cone. It was fantastic. I came back here two weeks ago, and everything was closed up except for maybe three places, this being one of the last hold-outs. I guess once Labor Day passes, and the kids go back to school, the more summer/touristy spots fold up for... More
