What a tease the weather was last week. Gorgeous, sunny, and warm. The weather decided it would yank our chains though, and delivered us with three days of rain in a row with no relief in sight till Thursday – and that’s if we’re lucky. And while their was a humidex advisory nearly four days ago, I was shivering in my house today and sitting on my hands to keep them warm. Tsk, tsk, weather. Not cool. Lucky for me, I enjoy eating ice cream any time of year and in any kind of weather, even in the frigid kind that makes your eyelashes stick together 😀
Enter soft-serve ice cream, the yummy kind of sweet treat that makes you long for summer and chase trucks down the street as the music ding-a-lings. I loooove soft-serve ice cream and I almost always get the swirly vanilla chocolate mix. It’s one of the reasons why I also love the little ice cream sundae vendor in the middle of Markville Mall, La Cremiere. Even though I’ve avoided mall food altogether for some time now (with the exception of Tim Hortons), La Cremiere is the food gem in the mall for me. While other ice cream places have started charging $3.25 and up for a scoop of ice cream, La Cremiere is great because you can get a medium ice cream for around $2.70 and I just enjoy the fact that they have soft-serve. I know, I know, I can get soft-serve at McDonald’s. And although I do enjoy the hot fudge sundae, they don’t have fun toppings for me to play around and choose from, so for that reason…I turn the other cheek 😉
I always get the soft-serve ice cream in a cup and because they have tons of sweet toppings that you can add on, I almost never let my ice cream go naked. I’m notorious for getting rainbow sprinkles (my weakness, they’re just so pretty and fun), but this time around I wanted to go kiddy and get rainbow M&Ms. It made me happy, it made me smiley, and it was delicious. Ice cream always makes the day happy.
Markville Mall is located at 5000 Hwy 7. East in Markham, at the intersection of Hwy.7 and McCowan Rd. La Cremiere is located on the bottom level of the mall by the centre court and food court escalators.
