The date is July 13th. It is a beautiful day at The Forks. We were hired by Inclusion System to provide all the attendees of the Disability Matters Vote with a free Chaeban Ice Cream. The turnout was beyond expectations for this very important event and cause. There were just three of us working that day, and we scooped and scooped and scooped. The line-up never went down for the three hours of the event. As the event was winding down, there was still a large lineup.  Then reality hit. We were going to run out of cups before we…

We’re thrilled to share the exciting news that four of our cheeses have placed in the top ten at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto.   What?  Chaeban Ice Cream makes cheese?  What the heck!

We continue our tradition to honour a real-life community hero namesake with each of our monthly feature flavours. Our last local hero was a famous one: Louis Riel, spokesperson, advocate, and leader in the fight for Metis rights. In honour of Louis, we pledged to donate $1 from every pint of Louis Lavender sold in August to Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre. For October, we couldn’t resist making our famous Peter Pumpkin. So the question was, how do we celebrate a community hero that goes with the season? Once we started our research, the answer became abundantly clear… Our…

If you visit our store at 390 Osborne, the first thing you will see is our sign on the door reminding people that our washrooms are for everyone.    Here are the reasons why this is our policy: We want people to know that we care about people, not just transactions. Our aim is for the first impression on our door to reflect our utmost priority: valuing people above all else. We don’t want to put our staff in the uncomfortable position of policing washrooms, instead, we want them to focus on providing great service. We’ve experienced the discomfort of needing…

The combination of Saskatoon berries and lavender create a symphony of tastes that is unrivalled in its complexity and allure. In every…
