Superstore:We all scream for KOSHER ice cream

The Real Canadian Superstore must have the best selection of kosher ice cream around town. They carry an extensive line from Breyer's (COR) including the low-fat and low-carb varieties. They also carry a number of flavours from Canadian ice cream manufacturer Chapmans. All of Chapman's flavours are kosher (COR), and many are nut-free as well. And as if that wasn't enough, most of the President's Choice line is certified by COR, including a very yummy "Too Good to be True" Fat Free Chocolate Gelato (one of our favourites!) and several organic flavours. The following flavours are from the COR website; some of the names are not exact to President's Choice names, but you get the idea:

President's Choice
Beyond Decadence Dutch Chocolate Fudge Crackle Ice Cream
Blueberry Graveyard Crunch
Canadian Maple
Caramel Cashew Toffee Crunch
Chocolate Cherry Chunk Ice Cream
Chocolate Decadence Ice Cream
Coconut Cream Pie
Eat The Middle First

We should add that Safeway also sells a line of specialty ice cream, Safeway Select Canada Great Escapes Ice Cream, that is certified kosher (COR). Although a little on the pricey side, the ones we've tried are very good.
