Cherry Ice Cream in the York Region?

New to the board. Looked for previous posts on the topic but didn't see any relevant to the York region.

Looking for cherry (I think it's called Bordeaux Cherry or Black Sweet Cherry) in the York region. This is make my mother so happy that I will have scored enough karma points to last a very long time. It's really hard to find now. Need to be located in York region (ie. Markham, Richmond Hill, Stouffivlle, Uxbridge)....actually, even willing to go into Durham a bit.

    Kawartha Dairy has an excellent Bordeaux Cherry. I just had some this weekend. One of their stores is in Uxbridge, but they also sell elsewhere in the GTA. Here's their website:


    Note that this they make high fat ice cream!

      I will definitely second this. I grew up with Kawartha Dairy ice cream and their Bordeaux Cherry is one of my all-time favourites.

      I might be misunderstanding what you're looking for, but most supermarkets carry some sort of black cherry ice cream. We just bought a giant tub of either Breyer's or Chapman's at Dominion last week.

        Chapman's has been the only cherry ice cream that we found in the supermarkets in recent times but we are looking for bordeaux cherry specifically. I did find some in M&M and also Laura Secord in the last couple of days. I do still want to try the Kawartha ice cream, though.

          What is the difference between black cherry and bordeaux cherry ice creams?
