Asian ice-cream flavours in Calgary (or other unique , unusual flavours )

pudinmirk Aug 29, 2013 09:53 PM

There's black sesame, halo-halo, ube and i think red bean, pandan and mais-queso at Lucky Supermarket. They are in buckets though, and i just want to have a taste-- are there any ice cream shops in Calgary selling these flavours in a cone, smaller portion?

I saw another thread mentioning Phil's Forbidden Ice Cream Shop but when i do an online search, seems the business has closed

    Asian grocery stores usually also carry popsicles in most, if not all, of those flavours. They're usually small boxes (4-6 sticks). Just find a friend or three who also want to try some and you can have one each! (Or give them to unsuspecting co-workers.)

      Village Ice Cream currently has black sesame ice cream as a seasonal selection. You can buy it in pints or scoops (or even a sample taste...they're very nice!)

      Also, I remember Amato Gelato had a few Asian flavours in their cooler section (pints, individual bars). I do believe they were Mackay's brand.

          Black sesame is no longer at Villag but it's still worth trying!

        Here's what you do: Go to Urbanspoon, search using search term "ice cream," call the places, and then come back here and let us know what you found. I'll get you started:
