We’re going local again and this time ice cream and burritos are on the menu.  You might think this an odd combination, but at Dee Dee’s Ice Cream, this has proven to be a recipe for success.  But before we get to the burritos, let’s talk about the backstory.

Dee Dee’s Ice Cream opened for business at Peggy’s Cove in 2004.  A family owned and operated business; they were committed to using the highest quality ingredients available.  Not only do they support our local farms and businesses whenever possible, but their ice cream is the real deal, free from any artificial colours or preservatives, and flavoured to perfection with real fruits and organic extracts.

Branching out from their seasonal business, Dee Dee’s has expanded their presence by popping up first at the Farmer’s Market and at long last at their new year round location at 5668 Cornwallis Street in the North End.  Just like that, their menu expanded and burritos appeared.

We couldn’t help but wonder what provoked such an oddly-winning combination and Dee Dee’s owner, Ditta Kasdan, was happy to share her story.  She gives all the credit to her kids. When asked to add a savoury option to their presence at a local festival, her son was quick to suggest their Mexican favourite.  As a mother of four she says “Burritos were a staple in our family, and something we did well!”   brudtärna klänning “It seemed the obvious choice and it just stuck!”

We’ve recently had the pleasure of dressing up Dee Dee’s newest location with some eyecandy flare.   Vibrant window vinyl and an A-Frame sidewalk sign are sure to bring you in off the street for a taste experience you won’t regret.  It’s not just ice cream anymore, but don’t forget to save room for dessert.
