Halloween in three spoooky parts …

The First Part …

 

The Great Pumpkin Patch …

 

Pumpkins pumpkins pumpkins … 

 

From now until Halloween, bring a carved pumpkin and get a free kids cone! Carve one in the pumpkin patch at 102 Fairmont, or bring one from home.

 

Then place it by the Great Pumpkin Tree as The Merry Dairy prepares for the visit of the Great Pumpkin on Saturday, October 27th with a 7pm screening, (with hot chocolate “affigados”) of …

 

 

 

 

The Second Part …

Eaarrly Halloween!

According to the City of Ottawa, we are now a city of one million …. residents …  and a hideously outdated Wikipedia page says 18.9% of them are potential trick or treaters … 

 

except that …

 

out of those 189,000 trick or treaters, for whatever reason … some of them simply cannot trick or treat … and as a result, they will miss the door to door adventure that awaits all who wish to partake in All Hallows Eve ..

 

Can’t go door-to-door on October 31? Halloween can come right to your door anywhere in Ottawa with special boo-scary visits by one of The Scary Dairy trucks beginning Sunday night, October 27 and Wednesday, October 30. Each visit is a chance to bring a bag of Halloween nut-free treats, including Scary Dairy scoops! All visits between 7-9pm. Want to reserve your scary visit? Send an email to info@themerrydairy.com and indicate which day, which address, and what time!

 

 

The third part …

 

The Scary Dairy at 102 Fairmont …!

 

On Halloween night, drop by and warm up, enjoy a sample cone and all the spooky night has to offer …

 

 

A pie, some pints, some sweaters and pots ….

Is there a more lovely time to be in Ottawa? Blue skies and leaves full of colour make sure we remember September, shoulder October so that we all can be convinced to celebrate December in November with lights full of colour.

 

Thanksgiving awaits, and as our senses are awed by the leaves outside our doorsteps, inside our dwellings, the aroma of a fresh-baked apple pie promises a fine finish to a Thanksgiving (or any other kind) of get-together, or the fun of bringing one home, already baked, ready-to-serve, and made-from-scratch.

 

While supplies last, order a pie online and pick two of your favourite pints to go with it, all for a special price.  Pick up on the day you like, whether frozen -to-bake-at-home with straightforward and easy-to-follow directions, or get it baked and pick it up fresh that day.

 

Tooling around the edges of Ottawa Thanksgiving Sunday?

The Merry Dairy will be closed Thanksgiving Monday, and then back for (hopefully) sunny October skies … and all Hallow’s Eve …

Canada here, Canada there, Canada everywhere …

Could there be a more amazing country? There is something so great at this time of year especially this year, when summer finally begins and our Women’s National Soccer Team takes centre stage. Of course, there’s Canada Day, a day like no other in our nation’s capital.

 

1. Here … at 102 Fairmont … 

 

The name of the day is back for June, with a special theme … See your name … get a cone that day!

 

 

2. There … in France … 

 

Stop into 102 Fairmont to cheer Canada on with a sign, or a ball. Post it to #CanadaRed and #CANWNT …

 

 

 

3. And everywhere … across Ottawa …

 

 

 

Easter Treats, Trash Pandas & #CoverMeOttawa …

Could there be anything better than the anticipation of an Ottawa spring? Melting snow, the first crocus bloom, and critters … lots and lots of critters … 

 

Some of those critters are more famous than others. One of them, Bert the Raccoon, had its origins right here in Ottawa!

 

Over the years, the raccoon has become known as the Trash Panda, for obvious reasons, as this article explains

 

And so, inspired by spring and critters, a new flavour was born … made of Oreo cookies, malted fudge ripple, raspberry swirl and Rold Gold pretzels … brought to life by local illustrator Allie MacAllister and now available at 102 Fairmont in scoops or pints and online!

 

 

On to #CoverMeOttawa! For some time, YOW Weather Records has been pointing out that Ottawa’s snow cover is record-breaking …

 

 

In honour of that, uh, feat, #CoverMeOttawa was born – a playlist of favourite covers with entries being eligible to win a Merry Dairy Easter Egg Ice Cream Cake … with the idea that we could beat the number of snow cover days with the number of cover songs in this playlist. And (hopefully!) that’s been done with a playlist that is now over 180 songs strong! 

 

Entries are open until draw time, Sunday, April 14th at 8pm. Enter your cover in the comments below! Want to hear the playlist? Search #CoverMeOttawa on Spotify or Google Play Music!

 

 

And what about those Easter treats? Add your cover to #CoverMeOttawa in the comments below for a chance to win your choice or an Easter Egg Ice Cream Cake or a Sweet Lemon Easter Pie!

 

 

 

What’s New and Soon-to-be-New at The Merry Dairy

With spring itching to spring, it’s easier to say goodbye to winter with thoughts of things new. And with new in mind, here are five new things at The Merry Dairy this springlysummerly season. PS – Looking to order a Sweet Lemon Ice Cream Pie? Click here 🙂

 

1. Tracking the Trucks from 2012 to now!

 

It all started in 2012 with a truck that could be tracked as seen in this ancient Instagram post 🙂

And now, in 2019, it’s time for two trucks – one with frozen custard soft serve and scoops, and a second scoops-only truck. And with that in mind, we are happy to announce a new addition to the family – a 1976 Grumman Stepvan that is being refreshed and rewrapped and will be ready for our real spring in May. Interested in booking this newest member of the family? Visit catering at TheMerryDairy.com!

 

 

2. Flavours Now Updated Every Day at TheMerryDairy.com!

 

 

Wondering what’s being scooped today at 102 Fairmont? Now a quick visit to The Merry Dairy’s homepage shows all the flavours available that day. Flavours change daily, sometimes more often than that! Have a flavour to suggest? Call 613-680-3144 or write info@themerrydairy.com!

 

 


3. More options!

 

Being nut free has meant being able to serve an entire community of people who would otherwise not be able to enjoy a cone! Non-dairy and vegan options open up that possibility for many others! Handmade Merry Pops have always been a non-dairy option, and we’re pleased to announce we are expanding our options to include nut-free vegan scoops made fresh in store at 102 Fairmont! Just like in the image above, vegan flavours are updated daily.  Suggestions for flavours welcome at info@themerrydairy or 613-680-3144  – and just remember they need to be nut free!

 

 


4. Even more options!

 

In addition to The Merry Dairy’s signature midwest-style vanilla frozen custard, topped with our very own salted caramel, chocolate, strawberry or other sauces, starting later this spring, we’ll also be offering a fresh custard flavour of the day! Check the website and social media for the calendar of what flavour will be featured when. Have a flavour you want … once again, that number is 613-680-3144 or info@themerrydairy.com … And the truck returns to 102 Fairmont as well with The Merry Dairy’s Jersey-style soft serve!

Watch out for sign up details for Truckin’ for Mom (May 12, 2019) and Back to School on Labour Day* weekend!

 

 

*er, Labour Day should never be discussed before the month of August … webmaster
