Dear Broderick’s fans;
Welcome again to our newsletter, our second!
To begin where we left off, this, our first season as owners has been beyond our expectations, a great summer season. We have to thank all of you, our customers for making the trip to Port Stanley and taking the time to come in for an ice cream treat. Mother nature shone brightly on us; a summer to remember.
There were many highlights including the long weekends with May 24, July 1 and Canfest followed by Aug Civic Holiday, Labour Day and finally Thanksgiving.
These events coupled with the fabulous line up of live productions featured at the Port Stanley Festival Theatre generated record numbers.
Donna and I took these opportunities to learn from our customers and expand our offerings including even more flavours, like Key Lime Pie, a favourite with many of you.
The offerings grew with scrumptious hand made fresh Belgian Waffles, delicious and locally produced hot Apple Cider and delectable Hot Chocolate made from fresh milk and chocolate syrup. No powdered mix here!
This past week we introduced a brand new product which has already exceeded our sales expectations thanks to all you chocolate lovers out there.
Fraktals spectacular chocolate cashew butter crunch [can you stand it???]comes in 3 package sizes including a Gift Box.
You can’t eat just one, they’re addictive.
Sure, it’s not ice cream but it’s sweet and it’s good and people love it. Not everybody wants ice cream at this time of year and it makes a great gift. Also remember we do offer ice cream in bulk containers to take home.
And don’t forget, we have 3 board games to help you enjoy your treats with us; Checkers, Snakes and Ladders and everybody’s favourite: Scrabble!
Take a minute, take an hour. Relax in our 50’s style ice cream parlour.
Halloween and Christmas will round out the major activities for this year and we will be open until just before Christmas.
Check out this site, our store signs or call us for opening times.
Thanks for reading this and check out the photos on the home page and the new Photo Gallery.
We look forward to seeing you back soon at Broderick’s Ice Cream Parlour celebrating 26 years in Port Stanley.
Always remember: Life is like and ice cream cone, you take it one lick at a time. [Peanuts]
