This was very good ice cream with a very nice selection to choose from. On a hot afternoon you may have to wait a while, but this is much better than your average ice cream shop.

Thank you fellow reviewers for recommending Cows. We enjoyed the whole store, especially the tons of t-shirts with cow parody sayings (I bought a moomoolemon T.). Ice cream was not the richest I've tasted but the swirls and flavours in most of the choices were incredibly sweet. My Peanut Butter Cup Cup had a toffee swirl which was not a ribbon, more like a river in the ice cream. The chocolate flakes were of good quality. Enjoyable, worth waiting in line, will return.

So, if you've read some of my other reviews you know that my hubby & I almost always try out the local ice-cream shops wherever we go. Guess you could say that ice-cream is my vice! Anyway, Cows ranks right up there in the top 5. We ended up going here 3 days out of four on our trip to Banff. I love coffee ice-cream and their Espresso with fudge was marvelous! My hubby really enjoyed the different flavors he tried. Staff was friendly and gladly gave you samples. Definitely worth a stop.

I first went to Cows in PEI in 92 and the ice cream and the pins are as good as ever. Don Cherry was very good tonight and we'll be back tomorrow for more plus T shirts maybe!
