“Been there,done that”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Local ice cream that is a little over rated and pricey? There is no place to sit so one must eat on the fly. Store area has a large selection of cow items.

Dear Gary K,

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding our COWS Ice-Cream. I am pleased that you enjoyed our COWS items, but am certainly disappointed that you felt rushed.

We do have a seating area outside the Creamery on our deck, but due to the size of our location, we are unable to provide indoor seating.

You may be interested to learn that our Ice Cream is a bit more expensive for three reason.

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

2. We inject only 20% air into our product (which is just enough to keep it from freezing into a block of ice). 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! It's a heavy, more dense Ice-Cream.

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

I do apologize for the lack of seating inside, but I hope you enjoyed everything else! Thank you for your feedback and I hope your trip to Prince Edward Island was most enjoyable!

“Worth the stop - great ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

I had heard all about this place from friends and even with all the hype I would suggest that I agree - this is excellent ice cream. i troes the salted vinalla toffee what was a wonderful experiance. Lots of gift items to purchase there as well. Replacing lunch with ice cream is always acceptable!

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

There is a lot of hype about this ice cream, especially as they claim it is the best in Canada! I hope it isn't for Canada's sake. Really expensive, small portions, and not markedly better than most supermarket brands.

“Good Icecream and great novelty items”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

The icecream is good but I find the price too high, I prefer creamier textures when paying a premium price.
