Is the line-up at Bang Bang Ice Cream worth the wait?

Bang Bang Ice Cream and Bakery on Ossington has proven to be a summertime hit with line-ups stretching down the street on the regular. While wait times might not reach Uncle Tetsu level of proportions, 30 minutes or more is not uncommon. We stopped by on the long weekend to ask patrons what makes Bang Bang so worth lining-up for.
