Nanton Ice Cream Shop // 2129 20 St, Nanton

Ever heard of Garbage Can Ice Cream? Well, they have it! A mixture of all the flavors in one!

Sweet Tooth Ice Cream // 206 Center St SE, Calgary

They make rolled ice cream that originated in Japan. Try the super cool flavors like Purple Haze (no, there's no alcohol in it, unfortunately).

80 Flavours Ice Cream  // 4025 Gateway Blvd, Edmonton

You really just can't go wrong with 80 flavors. There is literally something for everyone here.

MacKay’s Ice Cream // 220 1 St W, Cochrane

This place has been open for over 60 years! A perfect place to get your blast from the past! Try beer or mini donut flavors.

Old School Bus Ice Cream // 621 Main Street, Canmore

Remember the school bus days? Just as the name says it, they serve ice cream out of an old school bus!

My Favorite Ice Cream Shoppe // Marda Loop & Wentworth, Calgary

It's literally called "My Favorite Ice Cream Shoppe". People don't just call it that because they have to.

Little Ice Cream & Soda Shoppe // 4030 50 St, Red Deer

The cutest little ice cream shop in Red Deer. Grab a soda to pair perfectly with their home-made ice cream.

Nice Cream // #4-4604 37 St SW, Calgary

The first liquid nitrogen ice cream shop in western Canada. You have to check out how it's done!

Swirls Ice Cream // Lethbridge & Medicine Hat

They have locations in both Lethbridge and Medicine Hat, so you know it's definitely an Alberta fave!

The Cone // 8930-8934 99 St NW, Edmonton

Hands down the cutest place you could possibly get ice cream from ever! The building is literally shaped like an ice cream cone.

Chinook Honey Company // 386087 16th St West, Okotoks

A honey company that also serves Fiasco Gelato ice cream and sorbetto, made with their own home-made honey. The dream team in my opinion.

Fiasco Gelato // #110-221 19 St SE

With flavours like Blueberyy Basil and Lavendar, I don't know where else you would go to get quality gelato. They even make house-made marshmallows and drinking chocolate!

Amato Gelato Kensington // 2104 Kensington Rd NW, Calgary

This list would just not be complete without some gelato. You can even get gelato cakes, pies, sandwiches, they have it all.
