Hans' Homemade ice Cream

3640 S. Bristol St. Santa Ana, CA 92704 | Santa Ana | 714-979-8815

Location Description:

It may be cash-only (boooooo!), but Hans' Homemade Ice Cream is well-worth a trip to the ATM. More traditional flavors are definitely up there-Swiss Orange Chip tastes like an orange Toblerone!-but it's the seasonal flavors that are really worthy: pumpkin, peach and even watermelon. Nothing's so sweet that it leaves a fuzzy coat on your tongue, but please take note of the freezer case just to the right of the door filled with chocolate-covered bananas and these wondrous things called munchies-basically an ice-cream-oatmeal-cookie sammie dipped in chocolate and put on a stick. It's as great as it sounds.
