Organic & Local Ice Cream By the Scoop

I scream, you scream, we all scream.... okay, you know the drill. But we're so excited we just can't help it! We ALL scream for local, organic ice cream by the scoop! Isn't that how the saying goes? That's how it goes at Goodness Me!

We're so beyond excited to announce that this summer--this week, actually!--we will be launching our new Organic & Local Ice Cream By-the-Scoop Program! This might be a mouthful, but all you need to know is you can now get organic and local ice cream by the scoop at all Goodness Me! locations. 

What's so special about this program? First of all, we are using certified organic ice cream that is completely free of gluten and made with 100% real ingredients like organic cream, raw cane sugar, organic eggs (yes, real ice cream has eggs!), organic chocolate, natural mint extract, organic vanilla, organic ginger, and other all real, all organic ingredients. Compare this with conventional ice creams that are loaded with preservatives, sugar, and--often--more fillers than real ingredients. In fact, most of our flavours have just 7 ingredients! 

Also, the ice cream we're using is Mapleton's Organic, which is local to all our Goodness Me! locations. Mapleton's is also animal-friendly. They work hard to keep everyone (animals and humans) living in happy, healthy harmony. They let their milking cows choose when they want to eat, sleep, and give milk, and they get to enjoy fresh air and food on the pasture all day long. They believe that by reducing animal stress, the animals' immune systems will be stronger and they will be happier--resulting in a better product. 

So our ice cream is organic, it's local... and it's just $2 for a small cone, or $4 for a regular cone. And our cones? We use organic cones, and gluten free cones--it's your choice which one you want! It's literally the best, highest quality, most delicious ice cream deal around! 

What about our flavours? Right now, we are looking at having Vanilla, Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate, Ginger, Cappuccino, Vanilla Chocolate Chip, and Raspberry on the roster (flavour selection varies by location). Love a flavour? Want to see something new? Just let us know! 

I hear all you dairy-avoiders out there - you want a vegan option! We are sourcing a coconut milk ice cream that meets our high standards to be able to provide a dairy-free, vegan option. It will be coming soon for your enjoyment!

Let's recap, shall we?

Organic, local ice cream, by-the-scoop, at ALL Goodness Me! locations, on organic or gluten free cones, for just $2 (small) or $4 (regular). And this all starts June 22!

Be sure to pop by our eatery at the Goodness Me! location nearest you for a delicious, creamy, local, organic ice cream cone, and shout it from the rooftops: HOORAY for organic ice cream for summer!

Stopped in with my daughter today for a midday treat, and it was delicious! The woman serving us offered us three different scoops of ice cream on each of our cones, so we got to try several flavours at once. Really impressed with the taste and the price! Thank you Goodness Me for adding this to your summer menu!

T.S. McNairn: I believe the cones are peanut, tree nut, and sesame free. We use Let’s Do… Organic! cones.

Lisa: YES, our ice cream is peanut free!!! And gluten free. The only flavour not guaranteed nut free is the Cappuccino – all the others are nut free!

Thank you everyone for your excitement and positive comments! For those asking about Chocolate Peanut Butter and Pralines & Cream: I’m with you! Mapleton’s currently doesn’t have either of these options, but if they do we will definitely bring it in.

I love mapleton ice cream. It’s truly the best, creamiest ice cream I’ve ever had. Very happy that you are adding it to your store. All of the flavours I’ve tried taste great except dandelion (but I’m not really a fan of dandelion salads either) My family’s favourite flavours are maple (with a name like mapleton, maple has to be good), chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and mint chocolate chip. Mmmm. You should try it.

We have stopped at the Mapleton Dairy several times on the way to our cottage and enjoyed their ice cream. Will have to come in and try a scoop or two. We love ice cream!

Sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try it. Someone might want to proofread this article though. :)

I would love to know if this ice cream is peanut free. It is next to impossible to find gourmet ice cream that is peanut free.

We used to get Mapleton’s dandelion root ice cream a few years ago and it was my family’s absolute favourite Mapleton flavour, even over chocolate. We haven’t had the chance to buy it for a while.

I’m so looking forward to trying your ice cream cones. This is the first time that I’ve heard of gluten-free cones….and at no extra charge. I’m already a fan before even having one!
