I have a sweet-tooth and I definitely am a dessert-kind of girl. Surprisingly, though, I never had a favourite ice cream place until I went to Made by Marcus. Sure, I’ve been to a lot of ice cream places but I haven’t fallen in love with any of those places. But now that I’ve had a taste of Made by Marcus, whenever the mood for ice cream strikes, I’ll know where to go.
According to their website, they “produce premium craft ice cream made from scratch with local ingredients, and with no stabilizers.” I also love that they support other local businesses.
I actually learned about Made by Marcus after seeing a picture of the Happy Camper Sundae on Instagram. I did some research as to where that sundae can be found. After getting my answer, I dragged my boyfriend to 17 Avenue to visit Made by Marcus. We saw that there was a line up which I didn’t mind but my boyfriend wanted to go some place else because he did not want to wait in line. With a little bit of convincing, he gave in. 😉 During our very first visit, I got a Happy Camper sundae for CAD$6. It was super sweet and creamy just the way I like it! <3 My boyfriend got two scoops of ice cream. I think it was chocolate and salted caramel? If I remember correctly. It was so good we bought a jar of toasted coconut and mango ice cream to take home!
The second time I was there, my boyfriend got me a Birthday Cake sundae for CAD$6 and oooh it was sooo good! It had liquid cheesecake in it. It is very sweet just like the first sundae I had so have a bottle of water ready. 🙂 My boyfriend and I decided to share this sundae this time because we didn’t finish our ice creams on our first visit since there was a lot of ice cream in one cup! The cup may look tiny but it will definitely get you full! On our second visit, Marcus himself was there to serve customers so that’s a plus! I like businesses whose owners are there engaging with customers.
