Getting the Scoop – a List of Ice Cream joints in Fredericton!

Word on the street is something sweet has rolled into town…

Everyone can agree, summer is synonymous with ice cream. People have been consuming ice cream as far back as the 16th century, and why? Because it is SO delicious, that’s why! But what sets ice cream apart from the past is the sheer multitude of flavours and concoctions available today.

Are you a cone person or a dish person? Are you a conservative one scooper or a go all out, no holds barred 2-3 scooper?  Whatever your personal preference, I’ve compiled a list of ice cream spots in and around Fredericton that is sure to bring a sticky smile to your face!

Queen Street Creamery
The makers of Fredericton’s well-loved Chess Piece Pâtisserie & Café (rated one of Canada’s top 20 bakeries by Huffington Post) offer an authentic ice cream truck serving up delicious, cool artisanal treats. They’ve got fun flavours like strawberry rhubarb and cinnamon bun –make sure you have a try at their waffle cone! The best part about this nostalgic travelling ice cream joint? Everything is made from scratch with as many local ingredients as possible!

The Shake Shed Freddy
Bringing you a shed load of shakes and desserts is Fredericton’s NEW gourmet micro-shakery – The Shake Shed Freddy! A cure for your insatiable sweet tooth offering an array of elaborate insta-worthy milkshakes as well as your childhood favourites!

Happy Baker
Affectionately known as the former name “Tingley’s”, the Happy Baker operate this location where one side is the delicious pastries that they are known for, and the other is over 40 flavours of ice cream.  We usually make a plan to bike to this location (not as guilty since we are getting some exercise!)

Delish Gourmet Rolled Ice Cream
This new spot puts a twist (literally) on everyone’s favourite frozen treat. And it all happens right before your eyes! Watch as staff prepare your dish from scratch, finishing with a masterpiece of rolled ice cream. There’s 20 different kinds to choose from and dessert waffle options that make your mouth water. It tastes as good as it looks – and that’s saying a lot!


Sweet...Salty...Crunchy...The Chipster's got it all! So tasty!

Delta Dickie Dee Ice Cream Shop
Located along the Saint John River at the popular DIP Pool Bar & Grill, this is one of Fredericton's favourite patios to cool off and catch the sunset, and you now get to have a cone poolside!

Dari Delite
Located on 2180 Lincoln Road, Dari Delite has been in operation for over 50 years! They serve soft ice cream and popular choices such as parfaits, sundaes and milkshakes!  The building is reminiscent of ice cream huts from days gone by, and something that particularly caught my eye is that they offer a peanut butter cone dip flavor (among others)!

JPM Canteen & Dairy Bar
Huge scoop alert! When we visited JPM recently, one of us ordered a medium ice cream.  They asked “are you sure you want a medium?” We said yes.  Now we know.  This is the ice cream of monumental proportions! With countless selections, be very aware of how much ice cream you really want.  If you are experiencing a HUGE hankering and you are very hungry? Medium it is!

Skinny’s Scoop
If you are ever in the Keswick area, you will definitely notice this iconic ice cream shop.  It’s bright red exterior with a petting zoo and kids’ play area and of course, ice cream!  With menu selections such as “Worms and Dirt” and “Skinny’s Supreme” (not sure how many scoops that means), it is worth the 15 minute trip to this little spot on route 105.

Moxon’s Country Pumpkin
Moxon’s is a favourite stop on route 105 in Maugerville with their farm animals and fresh vegetables, but they also sell a selection of hard ice cream! A perfect opportunity to enjoy a treat and visit with the alpacas and goats (psst…if you ask nicely, they might give you some greens for the animals to munch on!)

Pepper Creek Delight
This little ice cream joint is run by a group of very enthusiastic teens! Located on Route 10 in Pepper Creek, the bright pink building is hard to miss! Choose from approximately 17 different flavours and tell these kids they’re doing a great job!


I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.
