The Best Ice Cream of Santa Barbara? McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams

The competition is fiercely cold for the best ice cream in Santa Barbara. You can’t just get in the game, pal. Your ice cream has to be delicious, you’ve got to be unique, and it has to take a pretty picture. Enter: McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams, scooping up the best in the business since 1949.

Chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry: check, check, and check. Obviously.

But how about… Chocolate-covered strawberries? Vanilla grapefruit? Whiskey and pecan praline? You’ve got it. And, oh boy, it’ll taste good.

Let’s take this outside.
