Ice cream sandwiches supporting kids?? HECKYEAH!

You had me at blue monster cookie dough ice cream!ย  Seriously!ย  And eating ice cream to support playground replacement at a local school, weโ€™re ALL in!

 

Lacombe Christian School is on the receiving end of funds from our most recent ice cream sandwich the โ€œRainbow Monsterโ€.ย  Our School Ice Cream Sandwich Program sees our culinary teams at both of our restaurant locations dream up an ice cream sandwich with some punch every 3 months, and we select a local school to benefit from ice cream sandwich sales, kicking back $1 of every sandwich we sell in house to a program or project of the schoolโ€™s choice.

 

From September to November the โ€œRainbow Monsterโ€ ice cream sandwich was served up at our Lacombe location.ย  It included two fresh baked monster cookies with blue monster cookie dough ice cream, rainbow sprinkles, and candy glitter! $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold will go towards plans to update the schools ageing west campus playground.

Our team was thrilled to work alongside students at the school in October for an on-site ice cream sandwich sale!ย  Students held each other to task and their work ethic coupled with their positive attitude helped us serve up more than 450 ice cream treats, raising some additional funds for the school.ย  A BIG thank-you to school staff and families who supported those efforts!

 

Today, (January 20th) we were thrilled to hand over a cheque to Lacombe Christian School for $2068 which included $1824 raised from the on-site sale (weโ€™re happy to kick back FULL proceeds from that pre-order fundraiser)!

 

Our current Ice Cream Sandwich at our Lacombe location is the โ€œBlack Forestโ€.ย  It includes two chocolate covered house-baked shortbread cookies, dark cherry ice cream, whipped cream, cherry coulis, and chocolate shavings.ย  $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold is going to Alix-MAC School in Alix for school technology!

We were honoured to attend a prayer service at Lacombe Christian School today, where we handed over School Ice Cream Sandwich proceeds to the Student Council leaders who helped serve them up to their peers!ย  Between the in-school ice cream sandwich fundraiser and those we served up at our Lacombe restaurant location we were thrilled to turn over a total of $2068 dollars to go towards plans for a new playground!

Bavarian Style Dampfbier
Bent Stick Brewing Co.
Edmonton, AB
5.0% ABV
ย 
Close your eyes and take a deep breath.
ย 
Let us transport you back to the rural forests of 19th century Bavaria. The birds are chirping, and you are thirsty for a beer. The rich folks in urban centres are partying with Hefeweizens, but you are poor and wheat is hard to come by in these partsโ€ฆ Okay, thatโ€™s pretty much the whole story.
ย 
A Dampfbier is a warmly fermented beer brewed entirely with malted barley and what would typically be a Hefe yeast. Weโ€™re almost always happy to take a swing at esoteric beer styles, and this is definitely one of those! Tasty banana and clove notes make this a nice quaffable and interesting 5%er.
ย 
Cheers to history! Learning is fun.
