CONTEST NOW CLOSED -Give Your Diet a Break, Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast!

Deputy Mayor / Adjoint au Maire

2 -FebruaryEN (1).png


Normally for breakfast you should aim to eat something healthy: oatmeal, egg-whites, bran cereal – but, yesterday was Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day! Sure it may not be as healthy as a kale-banana-smoothie, but it’s certainly tastier and requires less preparation time. In honor of Sunday’s holiday, we wanted to share with you five of the most interesting ice cream flavors from around the world:


1. Cereal Milk: 

You know when you’re done eating cereal and there’s that last little bit of milk that absorbed all the sugar? Available at Milk Bar which has locations in the United States and also in downtown Toronto, this is the perfect thing to eat for breakfast today!


2. Cactus Sorbet:

Don’t worry, we’re pretty sure they remove the needles first. You’ll find this unique treat at Fenocchio, a small ice cream shop in France. They also sell garden-themed sorbets such as Tomato Basil and Thyme.


3. Whiskey Prune:

Who would have thought these flavours go together, but they do! It’s like a Rum Raisin taken up a notch. If you’re ever in Australia check out Simmo’s Ice Creamery to give your taste buds a ride on this whiskey prune roller coaster.   


4. Lobster:

Yes you read correctly. At Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium in Maine you can order their buttery vanilla ice cream mixed with buttered lobster meat. Make sure to bring a bib.


5. Squid Ink:

For those of you who consider yourselves adventurous, bon appetit. If you’re ever in Hakodate, Japan, keep your eye out for this.


Interesting right? We understand if you’re more into the classics like chocolate and vanilla. With so many flavours out there, we want to hear what makes your taste buds tingle! Comment below by 12:00PM ET on February 11, 2019 and tell us your favourite ice cream flavour and we’ll randomly select three winners who will receive a $50 eGift card to Dairy Queen.

Vanilla, because then you can taste just how good the ice cream really is.


On a side note, I just love the Dilly Bars at Dairy Queen. I used to call them Silly Bars when I was a kid, just to be goofy.
