Yeppers. It’s been just over 10 years since that first truck took that first trip down Stirling Avenue to meet our first customers! And because we’re feeling all grown up, and because it’s National Ice Cream Month, we’d love to give away an ice cream maker to go with your very own copy of Great Scoops: Recipes from a Neighbourhood Ice Cream Shop, which tells the story of The Merry Dairy and shares 80 dairy and vegan nut-free ice cream recipes!

But how?

Starting right now until 8 pm July 31st, you can enter to win your very own ice cream maker or a Merry Dairy Ice Cream Truck Tent!

Simply order a Great Scoops Recipe book (or enter through the no purchase required ballot in-store or print it at home and send it to us) to be added to the draw. 
***No purchase necessary; free ballot entry at 102 Fairmont Ave, or online*** (One entry per household please. Open to Ontario residents only 🙂
First, some questions (and hopefully, some answers)
How does it work?
It’s easy! Every copy of Great Scoops purchased at The Merry Dairy between now and Sunday, July 31st at 8 pm will be entered in the draw to win this prize. The prize will be drawn on Sunday night, and the winners will be notified that night.

What is the prize?
There are 3 prizes to be won, which also means 3 winners! Two lucky people will win an ice cream maker that was featured in the making of our recipe book, which includes; the Breville Smart Scoop (approx. $500) or the Elite Gourmet 4QT Old Fashioned Electric Ice Cream Maker (approx. $85). 

Does your little one want to serve your homemade ice from their very own truck? Well, the third prize is an ice cream truck tent! (approx. $55) This wonderful tent is (an almost uncannily perfect) replica of The Merry Dairy soft-serve truck, and is great for outdoor servings of ice cream, mud pies, rocks in a dish, or anything else your little one can dream up! 
But do I really need an ice cream machine? 
Not necessarily! Making ice cream can be as easy as rock salt, ice, and elbow grease! We have a breakdown of ‘which machine should I buy?’ [pg. 16] in Great Scoops, explaining that a machine is not needed (but it works up less of a sweat!). 
What if I already purchased my book from The Merry Dairy?
All good! … All books purchased from back when up to now from The Merry Dairy are eligible. If you purchased in person at 102 Fairmont, as opposed to online here, you can fill out this ballot to register your entry.

And what if I purchased my book elsewhere, or I have a library copy, or I just like to enter contests?
You can fill out a no purchase required entry here(one per household).

Have any more questions?
