The Great Divide, Part 2


When we asked our community to share their food preferences with us, we were surprised about how passionately children, teens and adults argued for their choices!  This month, to celebrate Storytelling Through Food at the Beaverbrook branch, come cast your vote in our weekly food face-offs!  At the end of September, we will let you know the results!

Last week, we voted on the best cookie: icing in the middle VS chocolate chip? Votes are still coming in!

This week, tell us what you think about ice cream: vanilla VS chocolate! Come and cast your vote with a sticker!
