You’ve never truly had ice cream un­til you’ve tasted real ice cream — the kind churned by hand, us­ing 100 per cent all-nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents. That was the idea be­hind the Char­lot­te­town, P.E.I. ice cream par­lour that has be­come a sta­ple in the prov­ince … and be­yond.

COWS first opened its doors in 1983 in the quaint town of Cavendish, where it shared the spot­light with an­other P.E.I. sta­ple — Green Gables. Us­ing a se­cret recipe handed down through sev­eral gen­er­a­tions, the iconic ice cream maker launched with a sin­gle flavour — vanilla. But one flavour was all they needed to show­case their spec­tac­u­lar ice cream, which is made with 16 per cent but­ter­fat from grass fed P.E.I. cows, fresh, lo­cal eggs and su­gar. That’s it!

To­day, the ul­tra-pre­mium ice cream chain has 12 lo­ca­tions

(six in P.E.I.), a 32,000-square-foot fa­cil­ity where COWS also makes their al­ready fa­mous cheese, but­ter and ud­derly de­li­cious 32 — and count­ing — flavours of ice cream. Now rec­og­nized world-wide with a lo­ca­tion in Bei­jing, the tiny store that once was, sells more than a mil­lion scoops of ice cream ev­ery year and has been rec­og­nized as the“best

Ice Cream in Canada”by Read­ers Di­gest and the even the “Best Ice Cream in the World” by Talk World Travel!

Check out these Top 10,must-have COWS flavours (in no par­tic­u­lar or­der) as ranked by loyal cus­tomers: While these Top 10 flavours def­i­nitely taste like moo-re, the re­main­ing flavours are still heads and tails above any other ice cream you’ve prob­a­bly tasted. So, why not be a rebel and try more than one? Ev­ery flavour is served in a home-made waf­fle cone— some even dipped in COWS very own choco­late! How about some Royal Cow­na­dian Mint, Cow­conut Cream Pie, Caramel Mooc­chi­ato, Bessie’s Pump­kin Patch, Sea Salted Tof­fee or for the more in­quis­i­tive, a delectable cone of Green Tea ice cream?

And to re­mem­ber what is sure to be a flavour ex­plo­sion, COWS has more than 150 quirky cus­tomde­signed 100 per cent cot­ton T-shirts, PJS and other cow-themed cloth­ing and unique chotchkies.

For the real in­side scoop though, if you plan on vis­it­ing P.E.I., COWS has lo­ca­tions just as you come off the Con­fed­er­a­tion bridge, in Bor­den-car­leton and even on­board the MV Con­fed­er­a­tion Northum­ber­land Ferry!
