Food is one of the best ways to celebrate Pride.
There are many ways you can celebrate Pride throughout the year. You can listen to music by one of the greats, you can rock some Pride sneakers, or you can watch some movies that celebrate Pride. Although our pride in being who we are will always stay with us throughout the year, June is probably the most special month to celebrate with limited edition products.
As the end of June approaches, it’s time to stock up on some Pride-themed food items. Some of these are available the whole year round, while others are a limited edition only. Here are some of our favourite picks of the mix.

Guss Damn Good has brought back their Equality Ice Cream, which consists of a fresh milk base with toffee cracked sprinkles. The Boston-style ice cream brought out this ice cream years prior alongside the now discontinued flavour, Love Is Love, to tell a story of gender diversity in celebration of Pride Month. Each element of the ice cream represents a different struggle and section of the cause, and it joins together in a flavour that has become many people’s favourite.
