Hmmm ... It's Thanksgiving. Remember when friends and families sat cheek by jowl to mark the fest with flora or fowl?

It may not what it was but it still is a day to simply say thank you. And while big dinners with lots of friends and family are not a part of this year's celebration, small can be beautiful and delicious!

This week's flavours focus on the smaller feast and are available for pickup all week long or for delivery anywhere in the city of Ottawa!

Or maybe you know someone you'd normally be with this Thanksgiving who is distancing. Include them in our giving of thanks by sending them a thanksgiving gift.

This is also the final week for homemade apple pies! Made from fresh local apples from Spagnoli Orchards from Parkdale Market, peeled and chopped onsite, and nestled in a made-from-scratch crust.

Available now for order with pickup or delivery!

And by popular demand ... the frozen custard flavour of the week is apple pie, available all week at our takeaway window beginning Tuesday and available in pints beginning Wednesday! 

And congrats to Judy L., whose order #MD-144130  
is the winner this week of a Merry Dairy ice cream scoop!

Apple pies, baked, frozen, butter-crust available for pickup, delivery, or at the takeaway window. Each pie comes with two pints of ice cream of your choice!

Here are all the "while supplies last" flavors and products available this week for pickup and delivery or at the takeaway window!

Earl Grey & Fig!

Even if you can't invite someone over for a dinner party, you can enjoy a bowl during your next video call. Or better yet, enjoy a bowl together, apart with free delivery to your house and theirs. (V, GF, SF)

Give way for sorbet ...

Cranberries. They live their life in a rattlin' bog and then, instead of being bogged down, they pop to the surface just in time to be saucy or jiggly with groups large and small. What's not to love about this red, round, tart dinner guest. So why not invite more and say hello to cranberry's little friend, cranberry raspberry sorbet, designed to be that light finish to that heavy meal on its own, or sitting beside an apple pie, or your own crumbly creation. ... Available for order on Wednesday! (V, GF, SF)

Allergen information: If you're subscribed to this newsletter, you probably already know that The Merry Dairy's founding mission is to be nut- and peanut-free. Why is that? Because back when we started we knew too many people - kids especially - who had never experienced an ice cream shop because they were too allergic to nuts to go inside one. That's what our slogan "Ice Cream for All" means (thank you Allie Goodyear!). But all means more - and that is why we offer plant-based ice cream too. We're working on getting better with allergen information on all of our products, but you can always just email to find out what's in what we make. We do make almost everything in-house so that we know that we can be nut-free. Our traditional recipe for frozen custard and premium dairy ice creams do contain small amounts of pasteurized egg. Here are what some of the letters above mean:

GF = Gluten-Free - most of our flavours are gluten-free, by the way ;)
SF = Soy-Free - the only "soy" in our products is soy lecithin in flavours that contain chocolate. Otherwise, we don't use soy
V = Vegan - we use coconut milk for vegan ice creams, except for sorbets which are fruit based

All products are also nut-free, peanut-free and sesame-free!
Other allergen or ingredient questions: write!
