Cows - Banff
134 Banff Avenue
Banff, AB T1L 1C3
Great little ice cream shop on Banff Avenue. The place itself has a banner that says Canada's Ice Cream, so you can't miss it. Originally from Prince Edward Island, the place is apparently one of the best places in the world to get ice cream? On the front of the store, you'll find a list that says just that, along with other ice cream parlors in the world.
Their most famous flavor is apparently the PEI Strawberry that is made in house at the store. We obviously had to give that a try along with the cookies n cream, my go-to ice cream flavor. The PEI Strawberry was soft, creamy, and had some nice strawberry pieces within. The cookies n cream was mainly vanilla ice cream, but they had huge chunks of Oreo so can't complain either.
I can see why Cows is good ice cream, but best in the world? I'm no ice cream connoisseur, so I have no say, but it is damn good ice cream. They have a big enough fan base as well for them to be able to sell memorabilia and souvenirs, all related to the store. Wonderful dessert option on famous Banff Avenue.
