Canadian Mennonite Travels All the Way to Belize Just for the Ice Cream


Winkler man Pete Fehr was on a quest this fall for the world’s best ice cream and had to travel 5000 kms south to find it.

“Spanish Lookout, here I come,” proclaimed Fehr as hopped on his Schwinn bicycle and started pedalling for the border. “I tried ice cream in every town I stopped, but nothing could satisfy my itch, so I had to keep going and going further south.”

Fehr eventually found himself in Spanish Lookout, Belize, where he discovered a whole community of people who spoke Plautdietsch and had a penchant for good ice cream.

“I stopped at Western Dairies and knew I’d finally reached my goal,” said Fehr. “Now I just hope this ice cream doesn’t melt on the 5000 km journey back home.”

Fehr plans to pack the ice cream in his Coleman cooler and hope for the best.
