Rain or Shine Ice Cream is a bunch of fun loving people who believe ice cream should be consumed in Vancouver rain or shine! Located in Kits, our shop is open 7 days a week scooping up fresh ice cream made in-store. Our ice cream starts with local dairy from Birchwood Dairy in the Fraser Valley. We then add only whole ingredients to each batch with a focus on fresh and local ingredients where possible…. Hazelnuts from Agassiz, Berries from the Valley. Craft Beer from Vancouver, Honey from Langley and the list goes on!
We pride ourselves on making everything from scratch from our toppings to our waffle cones to our ice cream mix-ins. We make it all in-house using fresh, natural and local or organic ingredients whenever possible.
In store we have 15 flavours at all times, 10 Keepers and 5 Seasonal Flings that we rotate often. A couple of our specialties include our fresh waffle cones baked right before your eyes and Taco Tuesdays, where you can get a waffle cone taco with your choice of ice cream and topping.
From the start our shop has been powered with renewable energy from Cowpower, which is a great fit for our business, supporting small scale power generation on local farms using cows waste. Cows are awesome! All our packaging is compostable, and we’re proud our shop barely generates 1 bag of garbage a week! These and other efforts help us be as low impact as possible, a key value of ours.
