Where do we get it from?
We order our ice cream from the fantastic Island Farms. As part of the Agropur family, the largest dairy co-operative in Canada, they now deliver more than 600 fresh dairy products to families throughout British Columbia; as well as fresh ice cream to the market. We also order from the famed Foothills Creamery. Owned and operated by Albertans, Foothills Creamery has been producing quality products at its plant in Calgary since 1969.
What about our waffle cones?
Often, when you're shopping, you will have to stop and sniff. What is that smell? That, my friend, is the delectable aroma of handmade waffle cones cooking and ready to be rolled. Often they smell so good that we have to stop ourselves from eating them all. No lie. So next time you're at Paynter's and you're grabbing an ice cream, I highly suggest upgrading to the waffle. But proceed with caution, cause you may never go back.
Gluten Free Options?
We have them! That's right, this year we ordered in gluten-free cones just for you! As well we have a comprehensive list of ice cream flavours that include gluten in their ingredients so you can steer clear. Nut allergy? No problem. We can make that work as well. We've got lists for all the ingredients that go bump in the night.
What's the Difference between Sorbet and Sherbert?
This is a question we get asked daily, and it's an important one! The difference is dairy. If you're looking for a dairy-free option then Sorbet is the one for you! Sorbet is also sweetened with natural fruit juices, making is a healthy choice! Sherbert is made from iced cream, milk; which allows it to have a lower fat content then ice cream.
Sugar free? No problemo.
We generally carry three flavours labeled NSA (no sugar added) in our ice cream display. These flavours have been brought in for diabetics and others who cannot have refined sugar in their diets. What are they sweetened with? Maltitol.
At the end of the day we have a variety of ways for you to enjoy your tasty treat. Come in and grab one! You deserve it!
