Hallelujah!: Sweet Jesus Ice Cream in Toronto


Forgive me, Lord for I have sinned, I lost my Sweet Jesus virginity and I must say it was quite satisfying, Sweet Jesus isn’t just your typical ice cream parlour in Toronto, it’s a place where people go to give their taste buds their own happy ending and indulge their sweet tooth. I recently had the pleasure of losing my Sweet Jesus virginity to the John Street location and unlike many first I have had in my life this was one first I did not regret!

Krusty the Cone

My friends and I traveled far and wide, we even stood in line for 45 minutes just to feel the cooling sensation that this soft-serve brings to your lips and mouth and it was well worth the wait. You know something is going to be well worth it when you have to go to extreme lengths to get it.

When we finally got to the front I was still unsure of what I wanted, it was a tie between Birthday Cake and S’mores Campfire. Tough choice I was faced with, but choosing a flavour combo of ice cream is actually a hard decision people! This was my first time here, I didn’t just want to get anything I wanted something remarkable so clearly I ended up picking the Birthday Cake because of course I wanted the awesome candle that came with it. Side note my friend actually blew it out for me because fires make her nervous, she owes me!


Cookies, Cookies, Cookies and Creme, Krusty the Cone, Red Rapture and Sweet Baby Jesus

When going to new places like these with friends we always like to taste test what our friends get as well so I ended up trying the Bangin’ Brownie and the Lemon Coconut Cream Pie.

Bangin’ Brownie consists of chocolate soft serve, caramel, chocolate sauce, brownie bits and chocolate cookie crumble. I had the opportunity to try some of my friend’s Bangin Brownie and it was like i just won the golden ticket into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. If you’re looking for something that will satisfy that sweet tooth Bangin’ Brownie is for you.


Birthday Cake

Birthday Cake consists of vanilla soft serve, vanilla icing, birthday cake bits and my favourite sprinkles! Also, to top that all off you get a sweet birthday candle to blow out! How fun? I would recommend this sweet concoction for anyone who is looking to have something simple and not overly sweet. This satisfied my ice cream craving without making me feel sick and it was so yummy!

Sweet Baby Jesus

Lemon Coconut Cream Pie consists of vanilla soft serve, lemon curd, toasted coconut crumble and graham cracker bits. I also taste tested this lovely concoction from a friend and it was different than any other ice cream pairings I have tried before, but a good different. It was a little sour because of the lemon, but also sweet which made it a great dessert to try! If you’re feeling adventurous I say try out the Lemon Coconut Cream Pie, if you love the pie you’ll enjoy this ice cream concoction from Sweet Jesus!

Sweet Jesus is doing the Lord’s work right in my books. Head on down for some good ice cream eats and be prepared to fully convert to their way of enjoying ice cream for life.


Hamilton, Ontario, Canada has been my home for 24 years. Growing up in here was like growing up in little Portugal and coming from a Portuguese background myself, it could never be a bad or boring in the slightest. Food is such a big part of the Portuguese culture, which is why I grew up having such an adventurous palate and eventually becoming the foodie that I am today. In Portuguese culture it is all about coming together to eat great food, break bread, drink wine and of course having your family say “come mais” while dumping spoon loads of food onto your plate. The phrase literally means “eat more” and I vaguely remember those being the first words that came out of my mouth as a child. “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well,” Virginia Woolf was all too familiar with what it is like to be hangry in today’s society, she just said it in a more profound and intellectual way. I may not be Virginia Woolf, but I can tell you this I have made it my personal mission to make people fiend for the food I eat and the words I write about food (of course in between bites of delicious gourmet pizza). To sum everything up for you in one sentence for you all out there, I write the words for food you just cannot explain.
