5 must-try ice cream cones in Toronto

Ice cream offerings in Toronto seem to be getting more outrageous each and every year. Gone are the days of the standard vanilla scoop in a sugar cone. Now's the time to hit up some of Toronto's best ice cream parlours and try some epic creations.

Here are my picks for 5 must-try ice cream cones in Toronto right now.

Sweet Jesus
If you have an Instagram account you've most likely witnessed these cones floating around. This ice cream shop is all about over-the-top, indulgent soft serve with toppings almost too creative to dream up.

Eva's Original Chimneys

You can now eat doughnut cones in Toronto courtesy of the Eva's Original Chimneys food truck. Track down these eye-popping creations by visiting Toronto Food Trucks, which will tell you where the truck will be next.

Over the past 30 years this ice cream parlour has become locally famous for its wide selection of ice cream flavours and tricked-out waffle cones. With so many options available the sky is the limit for delicious creations.

Bang Bang

While the shop may be making headlines for their ice cream sandwiches don't pass up the chance to get your hands on their ice cream cone. Hong Kong style waffles are baked fresh and loaded with your choice of ice cream. I'd recommend the London Fog.

Tom's Dairy Freeze

Toronto's institution for soft serve ice cream serves up cones ranging from your basic chocolate vanilla swirl to more unique offerings like the Cookie Monster , which is vanilla soft serve dipped in blue raspberry and coated with Oreos.
