Welcome to the forum...tell me more about Canada's ice cream scene: are there more chain ice cream shops or independent ice cream shops producing ice cream on a relatively small scale? (Here in NYC we have both; in Staten Island, until recently, we had more local smaller ice cream producers and Baskin-Robbins, in the past 10 years or so, however, we've started to have some more growth in ice cream shop chains such as Cold Stone Creamery, etc.) What about favorite flavors? In NYC, it's safe to say just about every exotic flavor can be found, and there are innovative small producers, ethnic specialties, etc., but most folks stick to the tried-and-true.

Hi Laura, great to hear that everything is fine in NYC. My favorite flavor is chocolate. In Canada, we have many independent ice cream shops spread across the area. I live in Toronto. Local producers are also there. Once you visit Canada doesn't miss the Rain Shine Ice Cream as it's awesome. Have a nice time. How is the weather there? Here it is hot summer but with the ice creams everything goes cool...juz LOL...

Default Ice Cream In NYC

While it's safe to say the specialty independent ice cream shops in NYC have al manner of exotic ice cream flavors/toppings (and expensive prices) I've never heard of Rain shine ice cream. What's in it? I don't know about Canada, but in NYC there has been some weird weather recently. Anyone still doubt global warming? What we have had has been "manic-depressive" or "bi-polar" weather at times. It was extremely hot in NYC the day before yesterday, with temps above 90F, which led to the city government issuing a heat advisory (due to a lot of stagnant humidity in the air, which held in the air pollution, an air quality advisory was issued as well). In the wee hours, summer thunderstorms swept in and reduced the heat and humidity, and made the environmental temps reasonable and humane (60s and 70sF) however the price to pay was that yesterday was damp and drizzly. And NYC isn't even the worst when it comes to summer weather. Bangkok is actually worse, because it is an order of magnitude brighter, and the sun rises earlier because it is in the East. Much as I like ice cream (my favorite flavor is homemade chocolate chip mint from a local independent ice cream shop) I hate summer!
