Ok, let’s talk ice cream, shall we?! Who doesn’t love a perfectly crafted frozen treat made with the freshest local ingredients? I think it is safe to say that there are very few people out there who would turn down a delicious ice cream sandwich or tasty paleta on a hot summer day, am I right? Enter Sweet Sammies. Oh my YUM!
Sanober Motiwala is the brilliant sammie-maker behind Sweet Sammies. Her goal – to create frozen treats that will take you back to easy-breezy summer days with just one taste, introducing you to the most creative flavour combinations you can imagine. Strawberry-Avocado or Vietnamese coffee pops? Umm, I’ll take two of each! All-natural date ice cream with hickory smoked almonds? Yes please!
You can bring the goodness of Sweet Sammies to your wedding, celebration or corporate event and impress your guests with these cool treats. For weddings or private parties, you can choose from ice cream sandwiches and custom ice cream cakes or go big and offer your guests a full-service, pop up ice cream parlour with choice of super premium grade ice creams and frozen yogurts, toppings, sundae sauces, cookies, cones and more! And if there is something specific you are looking for, just ask and Sweet Sammies will be happy to work with you to create something custom.
I asked the lovely Sanober to give us a little bit more info about Sweet Sammies’ fresh flavours, here is what she said…
ALL OF YOUR FLAVOURS SOUND DELICIOUS! CAN YOU CREATE CUSTOM FLAVOURS UPON REQUEST?
SS: Yes! We love creating custom flavours. Often these are tied to the wedding colours or specific themes. Recently, I created a series of boozy “grown-up” ice cream sandwiches which included flavours like brown sugar bourbon ice cream and beer ice cream.
WHAT KIND OF FUN FLAVOURS DO YOU HAVE PLANNED FOR THE SPRING AND SUMMER SEASONS?
SS: For spring/summer, we usually take inspiration from seasonal produce. We participate in several weekly farmers’ markets in the summertime, where we can source fresh fruits and herbs directly from the farmers. This summer, we’ll bring back the popular strawberry cheesecake ice cream sandwiches and blueberry lemonade popsicles. We also have a new S’mores flavour this year, which has a toasted marshmallow ice cream sandwiched between two all-natural graham crackers, dipped in dark chocolate. It’s the perfect snack for weekends at the cottage this summer!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FLAVOUR?
SS: This question always stumps me, because my favourite flavour changes all the time! As we get closer to summer, I’ve been enjoying the Mango Lassi, which is a mango greek frozen yogurt sandwiched in oversized French macarons.
Thank you Sanober for sharing your sweet treats! If you would like to book Sweet Sammies for your wedding, be sure to get in touch as early as possible as cart rental is a popular option and subject to availability. For all other event bookings, place your order four to six weeks in advance.
