Summer means that ice cream season is upon us! Yep. You've waited all year for this and the payoff is oh, so worth it in Victoria. The city on the island off the coast has all your frozen cream treats dialed in. From inventive ice cream sandwiches made with donuts instead of whatever a traditional ice cream sando comes in, to classic vanilla and all the weird flavours in between! 

Vegan? Lactose isn't your belly's favourite? No problem! Places like Cold Comfort and Kid Sister can accommodate you for sure. And you best believe I've added them to the list! So now you really have no excuse not to try one (or all) of these amazing places. 

Feel like you need to earn it? Well, tis the season to grab that road bike put on your cutest summer dress and cruise around the city hunting down the best ice cream. Get a bit of a sweat going and really feel like you earned that cold treat. Need some inspo? I've gathered a list of 21 MUST try ice cream, froyo, and gelato places that you need to hit with your BFF this summer. This list includes places that have toppings, drizzles, and sprinkles. Switch it up or stay vanilla (literally) it doesn't matter to me. 

Seriously, what are you still here for? GO!!!
