We learned about Cows Creamery quite by accident. We had a little extra time on our hands and decided to make a visit. It was well worth the time spent. They have displays of how ice cream is made and a store with all sorts of merchandise to remind you of your visit to the creamery. Best of all, the ice cream (and variety of flavors) was outstanding. The first thing I did after I returned to our lodging was to check and see where I could purchase Cows Creamery in Texas. Sadly, there are no stores in Texas. No big surprise. Creamery personnel were friendly and helpful.

We spent more time here than we planned. The store area with all the funny shirts was my husband's paradise. Than we found out we cojld watch them make the t-shirts which was part of tje free tour. The ice cream was sooo creamy and rich!! The made in house waffle cones are as good as they smell!

Cows is ab institution in the Maritimes. It is certainly very good ice cream, and stands out compared to some of the poor product sold by others in the region. Be prepared to queue for your cows fix, as the ice cream is very popular.

Cows has great icecream! And the best Milk shakes! I stopped for my once a year milkshake and after waiting in line for at least ten minutes they tell me they are not doing milkshakes because there fridge is broken, your telling me that a large business like this cant send out some one to get a new fridge or have one delivered! Its not like your a restaurant with a massive menu and no one will notice milkshakes being gone it's a flippin icecream place!!! Icecream,sundaes,and milkshakes are your menu. Who ever is managing this location should hang their head in shame....I never even got an apology.

I ordered the apple crisp and there was absolutely no apple flavour and no crisp…It was way too sweet with lots of caramel throughout. There was one girl on cash and one making the ice cream so it took over 20 minutes to get served. Plus…we’ve travelled all over the world and I have NEVER seen an ice cream cone weighed before. What’s that all about??? And for the record…the ice cream, or gelato, in Italy was way better!!!

We visit PEI every 2 years, with a bit of a hiatus due to covid. We came back this week and the thing we were most excited to do first was visit Cows! It's a shell of what it used to be. I could not be more disappointed. We were planning to stop in anytime we drove by, which would have been 3-4 times this week. I won't be coming back. Staff are measuring the weights of cones and cups, the amount they serve feels like they are feeding infants. I get it, covid, inflation but they just killed 90% of the experience of going there and getting a nice big cone of ice cream. If they are so concerned about margins don't skimp on the experience, just charge more. Instead I just left feeling ripped off.

The ice cream is very good but the portions are incredibly small for what you pay. They once were rated the best ice cream in Canada and they are milking (pun intended) this review for all it's worth. I was told that the liquid milk and cream mixture used to make their ice cream comes from ADL. I can buy ADL ice cream at other places where the portions are much much better at a muc more reasonable price.

COWS Inc
Hi Paul, thank you for leaving us a review. COWS ice cream is considered super premium because of its higher fat content (14%-18%) as compared to regular ice cream (10%-12%). Adding to the super premium status is the fact that we only use high quality ingredients and we mix our ice cream at a low speed to ensure texture and taste are not lost. Our prices do reflect the premium status of our ice cream - which we hope that our customers can notice in the taste! Thanks again for your feedback!

Make sure you are there at opening as it gets extremely busy very fast. If you want a custom t-shirt make sure you go straight to the right where they have their production line. Expect to wait long periods of time if the print doesn’t turn out the way it should. We ordered right away and it took over an hour to get one t-shirt made to the employees standards. This store has the largest selection of Cows Tees.

Our second stop at COWS, but our previous one was at the pier. We arrived at the same time as a bus tour. Even without the bus, it is a busy place. Souvenir shop aside, here is our thoughts on the ice cream place. The good: Ice Cream just as good. Lots of useful and busy staff. Lots of parking space. The bad: Staff in a hurry to make you leave, it's like a factory in there. Not as generous as the pier. Only two scoops instead of three. The pier version is more friendly and more generous. I would go there instead of here.

Good ice cream but very expensive. Like everything we guess, things have gone way up in price. The atmosphere was not what it used to be and it looked very dated and dirty inside. It was still worth buying our usual as we do when we're in Charlottetown!

The young staff serving ice cream are efficient, patient and friendly. In terms of the lineup/ordering process, it’s all a bit chaotic, especially given COVID protocols. The ice cream, as in previous visits, was delicious! The kids had fun choosing flavors and we took lots of fun pictures.

One cannot come to PEI without at least once visiting the. place where the ice cream is made and taste it. I had maple walnut and bought a pint of Island strawberry ice cream as a hostess gift. For souvenirs, the tee-shirts are some of the funniest and change every year.

This was a great spot to browse for a souvenir and get a scoop of ice cream. Bonus that it’s a good rainy day place to go. The ‘factory tour’ isn’t much to talk about but there’s nice photos and graphics to look at. The ice cream is excellent and not any more costly than other options including DQ, imo.

It’s basically as described. Ice cream shop with gift shop. What makes it worth it is the T-shirt’s are hilarious and the ice cream is quite good. Not cheap for either but left with a smile. It’s open to 11 which is great for after dinner treats!
