Do you know anywhere I can get mango ice cream?

I reside in Markham Ontario and desperately seek mango ice cream and I am not talking about little servings that are sold with a bento box in a Japanese restaurant. Perhaps something sold in a grocery store or outlet. Any feedback would be helpful.

  1. Man i love mango ice cream too. i've only had it a tiny scoop at a time at the jap restaurants.

    1. I don't know but I suggest that you check T&T.

      1. I'm almost positive that the bakery at J-Town has it, in a freezer tub beside the cash register. They also have green tea, red bean, and black sesame. mmm...

          Yes, they definitely have it there. That's the one flavour I tried at J-Town.. texture-wise, I found it pretty hard/icy for an ice cream...

        2. The following stores in Markham sell Kawartha Dairy ice cream in tubs. Kawartha Dairy includes mango flavour in its product list. Whether these stores actually carry the mango flavour, you'd have to call and check -

          1. Not mango ICE CREAM, but Gelato Fresco does their sorbet/fruit ice called Alfonso Mango. It's pretty darn amazingly close to eating a fresh mango, but it isn't strictly ice cream.

              Gelato Fresco's Alfonso Mango is truly amazing..if you have never tried it, it's definitley worth pursuing...sometimes difficult to find but keep trying!

                Personally, I find the Gelato Fresco stuff to be a touch too sweet for my preferences but I have to agree that the stuff is fragrant and is as close to eating a fresh mango as you can get in the world of frozen desserts. And yes, you can definitely get mango ice cream at T&T along with other interesting flavours like black sesame, ginger, red bean, etc. Although, I have to say that I don't like the texture of the ice creams at T&T -- I find them either too gummy or too airy. Plus I find the flavours too fake tasting, and this is particularly true with the mango for some reason. But anyway, the T&T stuff may suit your tastes so I recommend you try it and decide for yourself.
