Hello everyone! On these hot summer days, who doesn’t love indulging in ice cream? If you need another reason, then here it is! For the entire month of August, Joey restaurants across Canada are hosting a philanthropic event called #ScoopOfCare. The ice cream at Joey is amazing! Their flavours are spun daily with liquid nitrogen which gives you fresh and creamy ice cream every time.
“We thought our Spun Daily Ice Cream was a great menu choice for the summer,” said Executive Chef Chris Mills, “we have brought the process of making ice cream in house. We start with liquid nitrogen, which is –321°F, and combine it with the house made ice cream base. When the liquid nitrogen hits the ice cream base, it freezes instantly which produces extremely small ice crystals. This is what makes the creamiest and smoothest ice cream you have ever tasted. We will have one of our rotating flavours featured daily meaning there will be plenty of reason to come back!”
Indulge in one (or all – you have all month!) of the following flavours:
-Tahitian vanilla (can’t go wrong with a classic)
-Double Chocolate (the texture of this one is like a thick fudgey mousse! DELICIOUS!)
-Strawberry Jam (my personal favourite – fresh and summery!)
-Maple (probably my 2nd favourite because what true Canadian doesn’t love maple?!)
-Salted Caramel (sweet and salty is always a good choice)
$1 from every scoop of ice cream will be donated to a local charity of that location’s choosing. The staff at each Joey restaurant have chosen which organization they are raising money for and there are a variety of fantastic causes. Joey Sherway (at Sherway Gardens mall) is supporting Peel Youth Village which provides housing and help for displaced youth.
Joey Toronto locations include Eaton Centre, Yorkdale (in support of Convenant House), Don Mills (in support of North York Women’s Shelter), and Markville (in support of Yellow Brick House).
For more information about #ScoopOfCare, check out http://www.joeyrestaurants.com and follow them on social media (Twitter and Instagram) at @JOEYrestaurants.

I will definitely be coming back at least twice this month to show my support (because really – ice cream is always necessary!)
Let me know which location you dine at and which flavour(s) you tried! Thanks so much for stopping by!
