This national chain of ice cream parlors started in P.E.I. As well as premium ice cream, there is lots of gift ware and clothing, all featuring the colourful cartoon cows that give this place its name. Chocoholics will enjoy "Chocolate Monster", chocolate ice cream loaded with crunchy bits of English toffee or "Turtle Cow" that tastes lick the popular Turtles candy. "Cherry Springer" is also good but there are lots of flavours to pick from and you'll have no trouble finding one that's right for you. The ice cream is yummy and the clothing and gifts are good quality. They market their merchandise (not the ice cream though) on line and have a feature on their web page called "Model for Us" where they post pictures sent to them of people throughout the world wearing their clothes - sort of a silly but fun thing to do.
