It’s a hot summer day and you have that sweet tooth you need to satisfy.
You are looking for that one thing that would make you say, “Man, that hits the spot”.
For some of us, it could be a beer, sour whiskey, Gatorade, or coconut water.
But for me, it’s ice cream.
Now, that I have two homes in Ottawa (during the school year) and Toronto (during the holidays), I have discovered two amazing places that I normally would go for my ice cream fix.
There are so many flavours that you can choose from, and the best part is that the staff will let you have a few teaspoon samples if you are unsure what you want to get.
My go-to order is the ice cream sandwich. If you go to Bang Bang, I recommend only getting half a sandwich. No matter how large my sweet tooth is that day, I can only ever eat a half-sandwich before I get too full!
Expect to spend around $5-$8 for your ice cream, which may seem a little pricey, but I guarantee the Bang Bang experience will be worth it!
Stella Luna is known for the amount of attention and care they take to make their gelato. And of course I don’t need to mention the many delicious flavours to choose from, like Raffaelo, Ferrero Rocher, and Mediterranean Pistachio.
The gelato is rich, creamy, and thick. Pretty perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings, especially during the summer! No wonder, their gelato was named 4th best in North America. Yes, you heard me, 4th best out of all the gelato shops in the United States and Canada.
There are many sizes that you can choose from (Small, Regular, Large) with varying prices ($6-$8). Although it can be pricey, I guarantee the gelato is well worth the investment.
No matter whether I’m back home in Toronto or busy studying in Ottawa, I know that I can count on Bang Bang and Stella Luna Gelato Café to help me beat the summer heat and satisfy my constant sweet tooth!
