I heard that Danny copied the idea from Arco/Mohawk Gas Stations in the states.

the fact that you don't do Richmond means a big fat fail for you....That's where it started and that's where you have to go to get it.

Screamers at Danny's Market & Pizza, Richmond BC
29 Jun
2009

I saw Yum-O-Rama’s post about Screamers and followed it to the post on Five Loaves. Screamers are slushies with soft-serve ice cream, something that I hope catches on at other convenience stores. I’ve read that the Husky at King Ed and Oak has something similar. Can anyone confirm that? There’s a location downtown that Five Loaves has also blogged about called Baguette Time. They also look like the Qrush at Qoola, which is their fresh frozen yogurt with their featured flavor slush.

With the on and off hot summer days we’ve been having, it certainly got my interest, even if it meant driving to Richmond for it. The location certainly isn’t central to much, but that hasn’t deterred me from going three times already…

The first was when I bugged some friends from Richmond to take me. They thought it was amusing that I was making such a big deal about getting these Screamers, but hey, it’s something new! To them, it was nothing new or exciting as they’re used to getting it all the time.

On my first visit, we made it just before they closed, which was 1030pm on Sunday. We even had to phone and double check if they were still open as we were rushing there.

Got a couple to share with other friends, there’s two medium Cream Soda in the back, a small Coke on the left and a small Sour Green Apple in the front. After I took this picture, there was a guy behind me who asked if I was going to put it on the net. That kind of caught me off guard, but since I was in a happy mood after finally getting my hands on one of these Screamers, I said “Of course!” and handed him one of my mini-Moo cards.

I had the Sour Green Apple, and I also got to try a bit of the other flavors. The Cream Soda was good, and it tasted like a creamsicle. The Coke was just really sweet, and that’s partly the reason why I chose to go with Sour Green Apple for mine. I’m not a big fan of sweet things, and I can’t eat much of it. I also figured that the sour slush would compliment the ice cream perfectly, which it did! These are also a lot of fun to eat, as you can scoop, slurp and mix them continuously.

I went back last Thursday, as I had a craving that just had to be satisfied. I dragged a friend to come with me to get one, and I noticed the specials this time around. Since I had just had dinner, I didn’t feel like having anything. My friend got a slice of pizza and a samosa along with her screamer, but both food items were pretty disappointing and bland. My advice, stick with the screamers.

I got my Sour Green Apple again, since I figured why bother with a good thing. My friend tried the Blueberry, which I found to be super sweet also.

Not pictured is my third visit just this Sunday…this time I had Crush Lime. It wasn’t super sweet as the other flavors I’ve tried so far, so I would probably try that again. Three visits in one week, I think that says something… go try it and let me know what you think.
I've never tried it before... seems pretty good!

That's nice to know. A store puts up a sign that claims it was the first................... to call it a "screamer". Big deal. In the post above yours, the idea was copied from places in the US. That, I can believe. Screamers, as we know it, go by other names throughout Canada and the US.

Not here to debate where it all started, but hey, if you love Richmond and consider it the centre of the universe, then cool. I won't give your post a big fat fail. I'll just give it one of these.

Which is better than just ignoring your post.

Danny's and Baguette Time are the only places that make it proper.

Most Husky stations have them but like mentioned, the ice cream quality isn't the greatest.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Baguette Time yet? There's your quick and easy fast fix.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=baguette+time+davie+st.&sll=49.282035,-123.132464&sspn=0.002096,0.005681&ie=UTF8&hq=baguette+time&hnear=Davie+St,+Vancouver,+BC,+Canada&ll=49.281958,-123.133821&spn=0.008735,0.022724&z=16&iwloc=A
I believe its the same owners as from Danny's Market in Richmond. Usually I order the almond roca screamer when I go to either locations. Sick of the creamsicle flavour; getting old and wanted to try something new. And their's is only soft-serve ice cream... haven't tried it with real ice-cream before. It's nice, a meal in itself.

Really? What year did you graduate? I'm on my last year there right now!

Danny's been there ever since I remember, do not recall a new ownership...unless I'm missing something? Went last week for lunch, and was still that Danny guy.

Is the cappucino one really that good? I like pineapple but it's hard to come by.

You can get it from DQ. Well at least when I worked there 15 years ago people would order it.

Danny's definitely the best I've tried. My fave is either blue raspberry or cream soda

UBC Snack Attack downstairs in the SUB used to have it (that's actually where I got my first screamer), not sure if it's still there or not, haven't been to UBC since I graduated in 2006...
