COWS Creamery Tours
Ranked #20 of 48 Tours in Charlottetown
Attraction details
Reviewed September 28, 2012

This was a fun tour for several reasons. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the history of COWS Creamery and of the whole ice cream and cheese making processes. She also gave a detailed explanation of the process of designing and making COWS' famous T shirts. The process is interesting in that the designs are developed by a committee approach in terms of what's hot and what's not. The inexpensive tour ends with a small taste of their delicious ice cream which, of course, almost literally forces you to buy a larger cone after the tour. This would be a great activity with kids, on a rainy afternoon or actually anytime!

This is sort of a fun time waster. We didn't actually get to see the ice cream being made...but the tour guide was enthusiastic and we had fun. It's all a bit silly, so you just have to make up your mind to have fun with it. Plus the ice cream at the end was tasty. This isn't a must do...but if you have some time to kill or the weather is bad, it's worth a stop.

We really like the "Mowie Cowie" the best and there was a "Mooey Goey" that was also good. We had to go back 3 days in a row for our desert fixes. You can taste free samples too. We just went to the dairy bar and didn't take the tour though.

They weren't making ice cream the day we were there. It appeared to be more of a t shirt factory. The staff was enthusiastically pushy - not the right tactic for me. OK ice cream. I preferred the ADL ice cream.

Great, original T shirts. Fresh made cones are good. Ice cream is a bit watery and mediocre. Very savvy marketing.
