Serving everything from bubble tea to chicken wings, Calgary’s JusBubble is one that is not to be overlooked. Our favourite menu item? Their bubble waffle stuffed with icecream, topped with your choice of fruit, sauce, sprinkles and whipped cream. Life changing.

Alright, though it’s not technically ice cream, it is delicious, it is frozen and it is topped with every topping you could possibly imagine. Bingsoo is a healthier (just as delicious) alternative to ice cream, popularized in Korea and available in Calgary thanks to incredible spots like Snowy Village. Made with shaved ice and covered in everything from fruit, condesned milk and cereal to cheesecake and whipped cream – 10/10 would recommend popping by this place.

Authenticlaly italian gelato spot, Noto Gelato is relatively new to the Calgary scene, but it’s us that really has the catching up to do. To be frank, these folks are well ahead of us in terms of creative desserts and unique flavors – just take their Brioche ice cream sandwhich for example. Who in the heck would’ve thought of that if not Noto?! You have to check them out, YYC.

Served with their signature Churro, Halo is not technically an ice cream spot, persay, but it’s still worth popping into this summer. We mean…. just look at the picture above! It really speaks for itself. Chocolate, sprinkles, cookie bits and soft serve? Drool.

Tacos and ice cream. Could it get any better than that? The answer is yes, apparently, it can. Not to be dramatic, but Calgary’s Mexican street food joint, Canelo’s, has created dessert hybrids so uniquely tasty you may not look at food the same way – ever again.

We’ll be real, rolled ice cream, no matter how it tastes, is just a lot of fun. Dellor however, tastes exceptionally great. It’s a lighter dessert, which we love and they have some incredible flavours. Our favourites are the Cà Phé and their incredible S’mores delloR!
