Insider’s Tip

Limited Edition, no more! Did you know that you can now get vintage COWS shirts made to order? Yes, even that line of COW Wars you’ve coveted or that Classic Confederation Bridge COWS T. Visit COWS Classics to place your order and relish in the the me-MOO-ries.

What began as a small ice cream shop in Cavendish in 1983 has quickly turned into a brand as identifiable to Prince Edward Island as Anne of Green Gables. From their delectable dairy creations to their extensive line of witty merch, experience the joy and excitement COWS brings to both locals and visitors of all ages!

Taste the difference quality makes at COWS, where the finest all-natural ingredients, an old secret recipe and time-honoured techniques are used to create the ice cream named Canada’s Best by Reader’s Digest. Nowadays, COWS produces more than 32 innovative flavours sold in stores across Canada but it hasn’t forgotten its humble roots, its commitment to quality or altered its decades-old secret recipe.

Since launching their Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar, named the World’s Best Vintage Cheddar at the World Cheese Awards in 2015 and the cheese that started it all, COWS Creamery has released six other cheese products that have made their way on to many a cheese board across the country. The latest cheese release is a creamy Blue Moo (Blue Cheese) and is their first venture into non-cheddar cheese. Also available in their shop is their irresistible COWS Creamery Butter, which contains 84% butter fat producing a richer, creamier taste compared to regular butter.

Want to get the Inside Scoop on how your favourite products are made? Make sure to include a stop at the COWS Creamery Facility on your next PEI visit for a free, self-guided tour! Learn all about this local business’ humble beginnings, watch their expert ice cream makers combine the highest quality ingredients by hand, see their iconic COWS Ts being printed, and feast your eyes at the famed Cheese Cave, where their prize-winning cheddar is aged for at least a year.

Every visit to a COWS location is an experience in itself. Delight in that nostalgic and delicious scent of freshly made waffle cones that hits you before you even see the counter! Browse the extensive line of COWS T-shirts and merchandise, online or in-store, featuring pop culture cow puns that make hugely popular PEI souvenirs! Be sure to grab one (or three) containers of COW Chips on your way to the counter, where you’ll find their wide selection of handcrafted ice cream with drool-worthy flavours like “Wowie Cowie” and “Island Strawberry” to choose from!

Can’t visit in person any time soon? COWS makes it easy to ship your favourite creamery products and merchandise right to your door!
