Multiple Locations
Summer Solstice 2014! Where to celebrate? How about grabbing a scoop or two at one of these prized spots for locally made frozen treats.

A glossary of iced treat terms

Ice cream (derived from earlier iced cream or cream ice): Typically made from dairy products, such as milk and cream and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavours. Premium ice creams usually contain between 13 and 17 percent milk fat. The mixture of chosen ingredients is stirred slowly while cooling, in order to incorporate air and to prevent large ice crystals from forming. The result is a smoothly textured semi-solid foam that is malleable and can be scooped.

Frozen custard: Similar to ice cream, frozen custard is made with eggs in addition to cream and sugar.

Gelato: Italian-style ice cream often made with more whole milk than cream. Scoops are usually denser, as less air is mixed into the dessert in the process.

Frozen yogurt: Frozen yogurt can refer to various preparations, including ones made with whole milk or fat-free milk, live and active cultures, and tart or less tart varieties.

Sorbet (or sorbetto): Second cousin to the ice or granita, this dairy-free treat is most often made with fruit, sugar and water, and can be sweet or savory.
