Vancouver ice cream artisans craft treats that mix design, good taste

Ben Ernst and Erica Bernardi of Earnest Ice Cream started pedal-pushing their addictive ice cream about a year ago. They sold ice cream sandwiches and cones at farmers’ markets from a tricycle-powered ice chest. That is, until stores like Edible Canada, Harvest Community Foods, Cocoa Nymph Chocolates, Dirty Apron, Stong’s and Mighty Oak, among others, started selling them in refundable canning jars.
