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 firstname.lastname@example.org!
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 Vegan Scoops! Every day! When the shop was closed in January we added a second cabinet and are now scooping 4 vegan flavours in addition to our 8-9 flavours of super premium ice cream. We churn a creamy coconut base for these! This week’s flavours are German chocolate Cornflake Lake Grapefruit Campari ™️ . Raspberry Sorbet 🌱 🌱 What flavours would you like to see in the vegan dipping cabinet? 🌱 🌱 🌱 🌱 #plantbasedicecream #icecream #superpremiumicecream #smallbatch #madebyhand #ontariodairy #foodtourism #ottawa #myottawa #vegandessert
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.
