Unique New Ice Cream Shop Opens in Burlington
If you love dairy -and lots of it- you’d better keep reading … there’s a new dessert option in Burlington.
And it’s just in time for the official first day of summer.
It’s the kind of place that boasts around-the-block lineups and endless photos/stories for the ‘Gram.
La Creme de la Creme Creamery opened on June 7 and it’s already looking like a downtown favourite.
What’s the deal?
It’s 100 per cent real soft ice cream, dipped in Belgian chocolate.
You can pick from 17 flavours, including white, milk and dark chocolate.
Here are the options:
WHITE: Oreo, Sugar Shack, Smurfs, Green Tea Matcha
MILK: Milk, Dulce de Leche, Salted Caramel, Brownies, Milk Rocher, Smores, Hazelnut Praline, Pecan Caramel, 3 Chocolate, Koffee Krok.
DARK: Dark 70%, Raspberry, Mint, Vegan 70%.
Then there are 10 choices for toppings, including pretzels, toasted coconut and star sprinkles.
Dulche de leche and raspberry are proving to be quite popular.
Vegans, don’t fret.
There’s a fresh option called the Fruity French Fondue. It includes fruit topped with dark chocolate (there’s no ice cream involved).
The family-run shop will be selecting a special cone each month known as Emma’s Pick (she’s the youngest daughter).
June’s selection is the Pride Cone (it’s turquoise and all the cool kids are ordering it). The shop will be donating $1 from each small, medium and large Pride cone or cup sold to a local LGBTQ support group.
If you’d rather sip your dessert, La Creme de la Creme also offers milkshakes (we got chocolate with real strawberries — it hit the spot!)
As for prices, the bill for a small cone and shake was just under $11.
Service is absolutely wonderful, complete with an adorable young lady providing outstanding customer service at the cash register.
Do yourself a favour and treat yo’self to the raspberry dip!
