Get ready for a sugar rush. When it comes to sweets, there is one iconic national dessert we all crave. Yes, we are talking about butter tarts. Who can resist that flaky pastry and the gooey brown sugar center? But now you get your hands on them in the last place you would expect — the freezer section at the grocery store. You can now get butter tart ice cream this summer, and it is almost as Canadian as maple syrup.
Just in time for the hot weather, Halo Top is coming through with a new frozen treat to help us beat the heat. The flavour is exclusively available in Canada and will be available for a limited time.
We hate to stay it, but it might taste better than your grandma's tarts. If you have a sweet tooth, you need to try it.
The ice cream has a buttery caramel taste with a delightful butter tart filling.
Don't worry; you won't have to worry about picking raisins out of it. Instead, there are crunchy pecan bits mixed with flaky pie crust chunks that we can't get enough of.
While you are shopping, you will want to pick up a container of their other new flavour. It is a maple pecan ice cream that blends brown sugar, maple syrup, caramel and pecans.
The flavour is similar to the butter tart one, but there aren't any pie crust chunks. So if you are someone who prefers to eat just the filling of pies, it might be the one for you.
Unlike most baked goods, these desserts are remarkably low in calories, too.
Across the country, they are available at Loblaws, Save-on-Foods and Metro stores in Ontario.
Who else is planning on filling their freezer with butter tart ice cream?
