For as long as he can remember, Daniel Curren has loved ice cream and Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia. His childhood summers were spent at his family’s cottage on the picturesque shores of Tatamagouche Bay – enjoying the warm water beaches, playing in nature and, of course, licking away cone after cone of ice cream. And who doesn’t love ice cream, really?  A scoop of delicious, frozen-bliss on crisp cone is as much a part of summer in Nova Scotia as sunning on the beach, a refreshing dip in the ocean or a backyard barbeque.

Ice Cream is an indulgence, after all, so why not indulge only the best! The best ice cream had to be richer, creamier and loaded with bold flavours. The best ice cream has more butterfat, less air and uses egg yolks. More butterfat means creamier ice cream, that makes sense. But less air you say?  

Without geeking-out too hard, all ice cream contains air. It helps make ice cream, well, creamy, and not just a frozen block of ice milk.  But most tubs of ice cream that you buy from ‘the big guys’ are actually equal parts (or more) of air to ice cream (or what we ice cream nerds call overrun). With our ice cream, we whip in just enough air and no more, just like the Italian Gelaterias serving the finest gelato.

Old school ice cream like your grandmother made, or what is sometimes called French Style Ice Cream or Frozen Custard, uses egg yolks to act as a natural emulsifier, add another level of richness and to provide a long finish – ice cream flavours that coat your palate and don’t simply disappear in a puff of thin overrun air. 

That Blueberry Farmer down the road from our shop, or Maple Stand or Lavender Field, or Brewer or Winery… they are all our neighbors who care about their products as much as we do. So why not make Nova Scotia’s Finest Ice Cream with Nova Scotia’s finest ingredients? That is why we will buy any ingredient from a local producer, wherever possible (hey, we don’t quite have the climate to produce sugar and vanilla beans). 

Taken together, our ice cream is categorized as Ultra-Premium. But we like to think of it simply as: Nova Scotia’s Finest. Get to taste for yourselves at Saltscapes Expo!
