Jubilee Park location has proven popular for new establishment

Ice cream lovers in Abbotsford now have a brand new destination to enjoy the cool treat – Banter in downtown Abbotsford.

Located at Jubilee Park, the new establishment has garnered a large social media following, with over 3,700 followers on Instagram and 600 likes on Facebook.

The business was started by two Abbotsford locals, identified as Laura and Zach, and was inspired by their love of light-hearted conversation and really good ice cream.

Banter opened in late-July and is open from noon to 8 p.m. from Tuesday to Sunday.

The shop creates all the ice cream in-house from many Fraser Valley grown ingredients and offer different flavours daily. Some of the unique flavours they have produced include:

White Chocolate Cranberry, Masala Chai, White Chocolate Candy Cane, Half-Baked Brownie, Ginger Snap, Monster Cookie Dough, Rum + Egg Nog, Cookies + Cream, Candy Cane Fudge, Toasted Coconut Fudge, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Wild Mint Chip, Plum Goat Cheese // Made with Mt. Lehman Goat Cheese, Raspberry Cheesecake, Apricot Sour Sorbet, Gingerbread Cookie Dough, White Chocolate Cranberry, Candy Cane Fudge, Mini Egg, Chocolate Hazelnut, Rhubarb Gose Sorbet, Roasted Strawberry + Toasted White Chocolate, Caramel Pecan Pie, Peach Bourbon Crumble, Mulberry Merlot, Elderflower Honey and many more.

Early reviews have been positive, and Sunday saw Banter sell out of ice cream.

Banter originally started as part of The Valley Food Farm Market and could then be found for sale at various local businesses before securing the retail location at Jubilee Park.
