King’s Ice Cream (1809 Mountain Road) is a Moncton favourite. The lovely flowers and funky ice cream seats are a great backdrop for capturing family photos. Expect a smile and a few extra chocolate chips with each order – and the portions are huge!

Summer Scoops (272 Elmwood Drive) is an ice cream parlour and so much more. Lots of toppings and options, including fresh mini fried donuts. (Unconfirmed as of June 1, 2019.)

Mighty Scoops (161 Mapleton Road) is a great spot to stop on Mapleton.

Frosty’s (100 King Street) is a colourful spot with lots of picnic tables and people-watching opportunities.

Murray’s Moose Ice Cream & Fudge at the renovated Magnetic Hill Wharf Village is a lovely spot to spend some time!

Milu Ice Cream Shop (35 Elmwood Drive) is unconfirmed as of June 1, 2019.

Crystal Mountain Party Palace (Elmwood Drive) has a hard ice cream parlour, as does McBuns Bakery (the 122 Shediac Road location only).

For an unparalleled selection of dips and other fun treats, head to Cremerie Bennic Dairy Bar in Dieppe (3225 Principal Street West). A crowd favourite among the Pickle Planet followers! And great news: a second Bennic location is opening in Moncton (1144 Mountain Rd Suite 1) in 2019!

Bar Laitier Amiro Dairy Bar is another reader suggestion for a great spot in Dieppe (1788 Amirault); it looks like a fantastically fun spot! 

The Pickle Planet family’s favourite spot is Dairy Depot (3161 Main Street), a lovely ice cream spot in Salisbury. Little Tikes slides, child and adult picnic tables, and great deals make this a wonderful family destination. Open seven days a week!

If you’re traveling to Petitcodiac, there’s a great little spot called the Farmer’s Scoop Ice Cream Stand.

Trueman’s Blueberry Farm outside Sackville makes incredible ice cream on site; watch their page for specials and you might even score a free cone!

    I used to love DW’s peanut buster parfait. Now, though, my favourite ice cream is a small vanilla cone from McDonald.

    I think you missed one of the absolute best ice cream shacks in town.
    Tropical Chill in the Staples parking lot on main Street serves the best scoops. Also, they have amazing shaved ice, you can’t get anywhere else in the maritimes 🙂
