Olympia ice cream

Dreaming of summertime? A friendly reminder from the collection that warmer weather is on the way, with one of our favourite summer treats: Olympia Ice Cream.

The Olympia Ice Cream Parlour was opened in Summerside by Henry Gaudet in 1911. Although the packaging has changed since then, you can still buy Olympia ice cream today. The Olympia Ice Cream Company was bought by Amalgamated Dairy Limited (ADL) in 1958. ADL still distributes the product today and you can find it on store shelves in six flavours, including grapenut, chocolate, and neapolitan.
