Great ice cream stop!

We called by at Cows creamery, I found this factory tour to be a disappointment. If you want great ice cream and a look around the merchandise then this is the place for you.

We decided to go check out this tour and it took 5 min to go through it. It's really not much of a tour, you just watch tv's to see what they do. When we were there, there wasn't anyone working in any of the rooms. Not really worth it, but if your just going for the ice cream, it's... More

We visited on a Friday about noon, and were disappointed to see there were no workers in any of the three areas of the place, ice-cream, cheese and tee-shirts. The self guided tour was ok, but not worth going to see.

We really enjoyed the self guided tour. It starts with a very interesting video to learn a little about the company. You can then watch them applying the design to the shirts and then we watched them making the ice cream. Well worth the time we spent for this stop. Great job!!

Not much to see on this self guided tour. The icecream was great and many items in the shop were reduced for the end of season.

We took the walking tour of the creamery. Very interesting. We were glad that there were videos of the different processes available, since no one was working on Sunday. The T-Shirts were entertaining. The ice cream was excellent. Mine was some of the best I had ever tasted! Wish it was available in the U.S. !!

The attraction is more of another gift shop than a creamery tour.It took all of 5 minutes to go thru the tour.It is just another souvenir shop .You can buy ice cream but otherwise it is a big waste of time not worth the time to tour it.

On the way back to Charlottetown from Cavendish beach, we stopped in at the COWS creamery tours. What a treat!. This is really great Ice Cream. Cow's is really the best Ice Cream out there today!!!

So disappointed that a place like this which is SO known for its ice cream flavour had an orange pineapple which tasted like nothing. No flavour stall. On the upside, the gift shop is quite amazing with wonderful t shirts for all ages and interests (spoof on Game of Thrones, Orange is the new black, Finding dory, etc)

It was raining during our recent trip and we decided to do the self-tour at COWS creamery. There is a short video that you can watch that tells the history of COWS and history of their famous t-shirts. Then you can watch the workers making ice-cream and another short video on cheese making. Doesn't take a lot of time but... More
