If it’s a hot day, & you’re looking for a cool treat, head on over to Stricklands Ice Cream. Actually, let me re-phrase that. Anytime you’re looking for a treat, head on over to Stricklands Ice Cream. With homemade ice cream & frozen custard, this Irvine ice creamery is one of my new favorite places to frequent.


This is an ice cream connoisseurs dream… ice cream cones, waffle cones, sundaes, turtle sundaes, hot fudge brownie sundaes.

Banana splits, strawberry shortcake, milk shakes so thick you need a spoon to eat them (I’d suggest red raspeberry, but you can also choose blueberry, butterscotch, caramel, cherry, chocolate, hot fudge, marshmallow, oreo, peanut butter, pumpkin, pineapple, strawberry or plain vanilla.)

Ice cream coolers (floats), ice cream soda, cherry, orange, watermelon, grape, lemon-lime, sour apple & blue raspberry slushies.

“Arctic Twisters” with your choice of blended twist-ins that can include Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Snickers, Oreo Cookie, Reese’s Pieces, Heath Bar, Butterfinger or M&Ms, & Dole Whips. Yes! The famed Disneyland treat is also available at Stricklands.

I don’t even think I can describe the deliciousness using words, but I’ll try – fresh, creamy & absolutely amazing. All of the ice cream & frozen custard is made totally & completely in-house. Every day they offer vanilla & chocolate, and then two other “flavors of the day.” & I’m the first to admit that at first I thought it was a wee bit pricey for ice cream, but the servings are HUGE & a small was more than enough. Plus, every Monday is Milkshake Monday – 1/2 priced small & medium milk shakes every Monday from 4-8pm.
