Kirkland brand super premium vanilla ice cream

Hi everyone, wondering if this brand of ice cream is available at one of our local Costcos.

It seems to be one of the best commercially available vanilla ice creams. I went to the Costco in St-Henri today and didn't see it.

  1. Hard to beat Coaticooke Vanilla ice cream if you like the wider-market brands.

      I second Coaticook vanilla. Creamy, non-chemically-tasting, made in Quebec, and easy to find in most supermarkets big & small (even Akhavan has it). Usually about $5 for 2 litres.

        For a real treat visit the dairy in Coaticook and sit out and enjoy the scenery. After finishing you ice cream get some of their cheese curds and visit the gorge and maybe take a walk on the suspension bridge (not for those afraid of heights). Gorge Park in Coaticook is a well kept secret but I recommend visiting even if it is just for the ice cream.

          Oh wow - what a great tip, thanks!

          Here are the hours of their on-site "bar laitier":

            100% agree. The gorge and dairy stops filled out a terrific picnic day last year. Best brand of "commercial" ice creams around - read ingredient lists and compare.
