Life is better with ice cream. When it comes to frozen desserts, not all pints are equal. If you are craving ice cream in Ottawa, The Merry Dairy is a fantastic choice.
All of their ice creams are handmade and super creamy. Throughout the year their rotate a long list of flavours, which you can browse on their website.
But if you see something you want, add it to your cart right away. Flavours often sell out quickly, especially seasonal ones, so I’d suggest you order quickly. It is also a good idea to check their site frequently as there are always new options being listed.
All pints are $9 and are nut-free. Some flavours are also available as gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, or vegan too.
While that price might seem slightly expensive, it isn’t much more than a pint of Ben and Jerries, but way tastier.
Their storefront is at 102 Fairmont Ave., where you can pick up your order. But they also offer free next-day delivery anywhere in Ottawa, if you order 4 pints.
They also sell ice cream cakes, cones, and ice cream sandwiches.
For my order, I tried campfire, which tastes like s’ mores. It has pieces of graham crackers and mini marshmallows mixed in. I wasn’t sure what to expect when ordering this flavour, but it was alright, but I wouldn’t purchase it again.
But the bright orange, pumpkin spice pint was so delicious. You could taste it is made with real pumpkins, and it was a hit in my house. The spice notes were subtle and not overpowering, so the pumpkin flavours truly shined. If you love PSL lattes, you’ll want to give it a try, as it is only available for a limited time.
