I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. When it comes to summer in Ontario, tracking down your favourite frozen treats is always a must. Once we are all able to get out again, travelling and sweet treats will be two things on many of our minds. Well, we've got you covered, as these Ontario ice cream spots are definitely worth your time.

From Toronto's bustling downtown streets to the side roads of Eastern Ontario and everywhere in between, there are cafes, restaurants, and shops open and ready to be discovered.

Whether you are in the mood for a banana split, a 'mutant' shake, or just a good old fashioned cone, it's all out there.

When it comes to ice cream, the number of textures, toppings, and flavour combinations are almost overwhelming. And the stakes in the ice cream game are always on the up, as the astonishing $120 Trump Sundae in Vancouver showed recently. 

So, this summer, grab your appetite, the crew, and maybe some loose pants, and head out for an adventure in dairy delights.

And remember: If your stomach doesn't hurt by the end, you're doing it wrong.
