These are the prettiest ice cream jars you’ll find in Vancouver


This summer, the long-anticpated La Glace ice cream shop opened up, and immediately it won the hearts of Vancouver’s sweet tooths and aesthetes.

The gorgeous Parisian-inspired shop is where you’ll find La Glace’s French-style ice cream (and non-dairy options) in cups and cones, all in a dreamy setting–you know, the stuff Instagrammers live for.

La Glace has now expanded their offerings to include pint jars (or, the super close Euro/Canadian equivalent, which is 500mL) of their evocative flavours, and they are hands down the prettiest of their kind in the whole city.

Right now the jars are packed with three flavours, but the line will expand with seasonal and other offerings. Try their classic Ganache (dark Valrhona chocolate), Crème de la Crème (vanilla bean), or Vegan Coco Pandan (pandan-infused coconut cream).

“Our ice cream is so rich and luxurious,” says Mark Tagulao, founder and culinary director of La Glace in a release. “We wanted the packaging to be equally impressive—something our guests can treasure or delight in gifting.”

Right now ice cream lovers will find three La Glace flavours (including one vegan) available for purchase in the shop in the custom-made milk glass jar with signature gold lids.

The jars were designed by Vancouver creative agency Arithmetic, and retail–all full up with ice cream goodness–at La Glace for $15 each, which includes a $1 deposit.
