“Great ice cream”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Loved the ice cream. Don't let the long line turn you away. It moves very quickly with plenty of staff. Main reason for the long line is people not moving forward and ordering in a reasonable time. I suggest they put a list of the flavours at the door so people can pick before they get to the counter.

Great range of merchandise as well. Some funny tshirts.

“Yummy Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

One of the best places for ice cream we have ever been! We went for a snack and it ended up being dinner! Couldn't decide; every flavor was so tempting!

“Lots of flavors”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

I was laughing out loud at some of the cute cow shirts (Keeping up with the Cowdashians, Angry Herds.) Lots of ice cream flavors and priced better than other ice cream places in Whistler. Crowded, especially in the summer.

“fun to visit, but ice cream expensive.”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

like everything else in Whistler, this is all an optical illusion. The smell is wonderful (waffle cones cooking?) and the staff enthusiastic. However, as to be expected, the end result was an expensive let down. Kids might be satisfied, but we were not. Fun merchandise brings this to an average rating.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at COWS! I'm "udderly" unhappy you did not enjoy our Ice Cream as much as we had hoped. We do strive to provide our customers with the best product possible.

You may be interested to learn about the lengths we go to, to ensure our COWS Ice Cream is of premium taste!

1. We use 16% butterfat in our products versus the industry average of about 10%.

2. We inject only 20% air into our product. Most store brands inject up to and more than 70% into their product. So when you buy COWS ice cream, you are getting more for your dollar!

3. We only use the best ingredients available to us! For example, our vanilla comes from Madagascar and our cocoa comes from Holland.

I want to thank you again for your review and for visiting our store! I hope you enjoyed your stay in Whistler!

“The secret of why it tastes so good!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

First visit and I wanted one of the cool T-shirts and ended up having Ice Cream as well. It was really good and here's why:

The ingredients are all local and fresh.
The ice cream is mixed by hand.
The butter content is 14%. (WHICH IS THE MOST YOU CAN HAVE APPARENTLY!)

Ha! They say the three secrets to great french cooking are butter, butter and butter. This is very true of Cows where the buttery ice cream is very rich. I could't have more than one a week though.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your joyful experience at COWS Richard! We are so happy you enjoyed our T-Shirts while having some of our Ice Cream!

We actually use 16% butterfat not 14%! We took the French cooking mantra to heart, and that's why our Ice Cream tastes so good!

We look forward to your next visit and hope it will be as "Mooverlous" as before!
