Purdy’s is a regional chain that started in Vancouver. Purdy’s typically offers a selection of around 8 of their own flavors as well as sundaes and ice cream bars.
They have a lot of classic 90s flavours like mint chocolate chip, vanilla, cotton candy and bubble gum.
You can get one scoop or two in a cone or a cup. They also have fancy waffle cones that are dipped in chocolate and covered in nuts or sprinkles.
Their sundaes are topped with Purdy’s melted white or dark chocolate and topped with sprinkles or toasted nuts. The chocolate goes on in liquid form and then hardens on top of the ice cream. This is no chocolate sauce it is full on melted chocolate. So good. My favorite is the mint chip with dark chocolate and toasted almonds on top.
I am really glad I did because it is honestly one of the best things I have ever eaten.
My husband told me since I was reviewing Purdy’s ice cream i had to try their ultimate ice cream bar. They take a vanilla ice cream bar out, and dip it first in white chocolate, then twice in dark chocolate and then cover it in toasted almonds. Right in front of you!
It is even better than it looks. Now I want another one.
