It’s that time of year again. July 21st is National Ice Cream Day! But why not celebrate all summer long? We’ve made this list of the best ice cream in San Diego so the party doesn’t have to stop. Try one or try them all – this is a judgment-free zone.
HAMMOND’S GOURMET ICE CREAM
Hammond’s is an award-winning local favorite. They have over 300 flavors that they describe as “dense, creamy, and delicious ice cream flavors that will make your taste buds stand up and shout for more.” But don’t worry if you can’t decide which flavor you want. Hammond’s also does ice cream flights, so you can try all the flavors you want. Some of their most unique options include lime toasted coconut cheesecake, vegan malt toffee, raspberry guava sorbet, and Kona coffee Oreo cookie.
SALT & STRAW
Salt & Straw was founded in Oregon and has shops all over the West Coast. They came to San Diego a few years ago and quickly became a favorite of everyone in town. Their ice cream is so creamy and has unique ingredients that make it hard to beat. It’s safe to say you’ve never had ice cream like this. Salt & Straw keeps their menu fresh with seasonal flavors like goat cheese marionberry habanero and vegan Meyer lemon with blueberries. Some of their most popular flavors include honey lavender, James Coffee & bourbon, and salted malted chocolate chip cookie dough.
MARIPOSA ICE CREAM
Mariposa Ice Cream has been winning awards in San Diego for almost 20 years. Their take on ice cream is “no gimmicks, no need for expensive mix-ins, just good old-fashioned ice cream, served by the people who make it."
