Goodbye August, Hello September, and, gulp, hello school!

Is 2020 done yet?

For so many teachers and support staff in our schools, it's just beginning all over again ...

So, while we all usually wait until the end of school year to give a small thank you gift to the people who take care of our kids, maybe the beginning of this school year in this blech-y 2020 is the best time to offer a small pick-me-up in recognition of all the hard work being done whether for remote or in-class learning.

From now until September 14, The Merry Dairy will contribute 25% of the cost of a special ThankTeacher gift card, That means a $10 gift will only cost $7.50, a $20 gift card $15 etc. Whether it's a small token of appreciation, or it's a bunch of parents saying it together to a whole gang, there is an option for everyone!

Each card purchased will be delivered to the recipient's school and each card can be used anytime at or at our takeaway window! See how to order here!

And as the transition to fall begins, Mocha Fudge Brownie frozen custard all week long until Sunday, September 6th, which also happens to be national coffee ice cream day! Order a pint or stop by the takeaway window and grab a cup, er, scoop!

Some upcoming changes to the shop for the fall season!
After Labour Day (September 7) deliveries will switch to three days, Thursday to Saturday, and the takeaway window will switch to fall hours

The takeaway window is open 2-9pm Tuesday to Sunday (until September, 6, then hours will change). Flavours are constantly changing, check to see which of the 13+ fresh, original-recipe flavours are being scooped daily at

The flavour that started it all. And not an imitation - but pure vanilla. A flavour that is wild on its own, and yet, delicately goes with any other flavour. Could there be a more dependable and more exciting ice cream friend than the uniquely universal Vanilla? (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!
