After the last couple of weeks of exams, final projects, report cards, and graduations it is official: Summer is here. And although we live in the Maritimes where the weather is… unpredictable, we still like to enjoy a cold treat on those hot summer days. To help you get into the groove of summer we wanted to highlight for you a special little ice cream shop where you (like us) may want to spend those warm evenings.
Kings Ice Cream was opened in 2003 by sisters Sarah, Celine, and Melissa Campbell. They worked together to create a unique and inviting atmosphere for the surrounding community. With it’s homey barn-like style, ice cream cone chairs, and over 30 flavours of ice cream, it’s the perfect spot for a treat.
The shop is located at 1809 Mountain Road (across from Tim’s a) and the hours are Mon-Sun 1pm-10pm.
Leanne’s Review: When I visited the Kings I tried the “small” hard ice cream in a waffle cone… and it wasn’t small! I was able to get two scoops of ice cream wrapped in a delicious waffle cone, one scoop of cookie n cream and one scoop of peanut butter fudge crunch. While I really enjoyed the cookies n cream, the peanut butter fudge crunch was definitely my favorite of the two!

The only thing harder than shopping for a new mum is being one. Both of those were true though for Amy Clinch who struggled to be able to get the products that she wanted for her new born in Moncton. Amy will tell you that when she was pregnant that she resorted to traveling all over Atlantic Canada and ordering online on order to get the products she wanted for her baby because of the limited selection available in Moncton. And it was this struggled that gave Amy the idea of starting her own store here in Moncton so that other mothers didn’t have to go through the same thing she did. Ana Banana, named after Amy’s daughter, is a high quality baby products and accessories store that experienced real success itself in its first two month of business.
Being a new mother can be very overwhleming and big generic box stores don’t help that. Ana Banana prides itself on giving you the one-on-one customer service that you and your new family member deserve. Located at 1612 Mountain Rd. the store is filled with innovative and award winning products for newborn-4 year olds. From strollers to toys to cribs to swaddling cloths, this store has products that you wont find anywhere else in Moncton. As well, Ana Banana offers registry services to help loved ones with their shopping experience as well.
Recommended Product: One of Ana Banana’s most successful products to date has been their breathable swaddling clothes. These clothes, made of muslin, have gained so much popularity because of the reduced risk of SIDS associated with the breathable material. So, whether you’re expecting yourself or know someone who is, this is the product to try!
