Torico Ice Cream | 20 Erie Street
This Hamilton Park staple has a seasonal ice cream flavor that is on point for the holiday: Irish Cream Liqueur. While this ice cream isn’t green, the flavor is too clever to be left out of this list. The ice cream is made up of Bailey’s Irish Cream ice cream, Jameson ice cream, and garnished with melted caramel and chocolate fudge. Like all of the other Torico treats, the Irish Cream Liqueur is handmade in the store regularly, but it’s only available for the month of March.
