You scream, Ice Cream

November 29, 2013

Rain or Shine is bringing megawatt smiles to faces with its artisanal ice cream, made in-house (literally in the back kitchen) from locally sourced and fair trade ingredients (including JJ Bean espresso beans and honey from Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm in the Fraser Valley).

This new small-batch ice cream parlou has us asking for a triple scoop, please. 
Flavours here are a delight, from ‘keepers’ like Salted Caramel and Blueberry Balsamic to ‘seasonal flings’ like Spiced Apple Sorbet and the beer-based Powell St. Porter (from $4.50). There’s a creativity to the combinations here you can order a flight ($9 for four flavours), or you can drop by on Taco Tuesday, when the ice cream comes on a waffle taco with a topping and whip cream ($6).

Everything about this place has local and community at heart, right down to the refurbished old tractor seat stools and the counters, made out of reclaimed wood from the Olympic Village.

If it was our way, we’d have ice cream three times a day. May Globus
