To beat the heat in Vancouver, a cold sweet treat can help you keep your cool.


Here are six more delicious sweet treats worth checking out in Vancouver this summer:

Liquid nitrogen ice cream at the Vancouver Club


Liquid nitrogen ice cream (Tristan Casey)

When it comes to ice cream, nothing beats a scoop or two of the deliciously smooth and delightfully sweet raspberry infused liquid nitrogen churned ice cream at the Vancouver Club. This incredibly trendy dessert is made-to-order table side, and is the result of slowly mixing liquid nitrogen with creamy ingredients until the mixture is completely frozen. To get a spoon near this dessert there is a big catch however, you must either be a member of the Vancouver Club or know a member to get in.
