We laughed about Maple Walnut being “old people” ice cream.
What kid would choose choose it when there’s Tiger or Rainbow – or the mysterious Wet Paint? Maple Walnut sounds like expensive furniture that’s built to last generations.
I see that MacKay’s Cochrane Ice Cream is available at the newly opened cafe in the Old Strathcona Antique Mall (you can also buy it at Sunterra).

It’s extra yummy because it’s extra fatty – made with 17% butterfat, versus 10% to 12% in most commercial ice cream.
According to MacKay’s website, their top flavour is… Maple Walnut.

What’s your favourite ice cream (or gelato), Crabby? Right now, mine is the Mayan chocolate (with cinnamon & chili seeds) at Da Capo. I usually pair it with a scoop of something bland like Ricotta to cut the heat.
