Butter Tart ice Cream?

While driving back to Toronto from Algonquin Park in September, we passed a sign advertising Butter Tart Ice Cream. The sign was somewhere south of Huntsville, north of Barrie (I know that's a large area)! Not sure if the store was there as well, or an advertisement for somewhere else. Does anyone know where I can get this delicious sounding product?

    In Bracebridge, which is south of Huntsville and north of Barrie (actually, north of Orilla), there is a restaurant called Marty's, and they specialize in butter tarts. We tried their Butter tart ice cream. It was ok. I didn't get a chance to try their butter tarts.

          I think from when they rebranded their ice cream. Haven't tried it yet, but I will!!!

        Actually Presidents choice does a pretty good version. I think its called "LOADS OF butter tart".

          The PC stuff is Loads of Pecan Butter Tarts, at least that's the one that we bought. It's certainly nowhere as good as the butter tarts my father makes. I wouldn't have guessed that it was butter tart flavoured, but it's ok.

            I agree -- I find the PC butter tart ice cream waaay too sweet. It was very disappointing.

                I agree that it's probably 'inedible', but I've been going through a rough time at work lately and found myself eating it from the carton on Sunday - disgusting but I was doing it.....

                  yeah, now that you mention it, I do recall it being really sweet.

                  My boyfriend and I managed to demolish an entire carton since Saturday so we certainly didn't find it inedible. I do agree that it's EXTREMELY sweet though.
