Happy first day of summer! And what better way to kick it off than with a big scoop of ice cream? When Zack and I visited Santa Barbara, one place we definitely wanted to check out was the famous McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams.

The line was out the door and down the street, but it was absolutely worth the 30 minute wait (yes, we did wait 30 minutes for ice cream). There we so many unique flavors to choose from, but after a few samples, we decided on:

earl grey tea + shortbread cookies // dark chocolate chips + nibs // sea salt cream + cookies

And yes, those are all flavors of ice cream.

Overall thoughts: Do I really need to convince you that this place has delicious ice cream? Just look at the flavor choices on the menu! If you visit Santa Barbara, McConnell’s should definitely be on your list. And if you’re not up for the drive, they do have a few locations in the Los Angeles area, AND some grocery stores even carry pints!
