Hammond’s Gourmet Ice Cream (Pacific Beach)

Hammond’s Gourmet Ice Cream recently opened a second location in Pacific Beach. I’ve been a fan of the original location, known for their ice cream flights and offerings from Tropical Dreams (manufacturer of super premium ice creams) in Hawaii. The Pacific Beach location is a little bit closer to us, so I was excited to go check it out.

I can never resist getting an ice cream flight here. Everything is cuter when it’s mini and it gives me a chance to try more flavors. I don’t know why more ice cream shops don’t offer flights.

For the flights, you can choose anywhere between 2 to 6. The cones come in both cake cones and waffle cones. In the past, I’ve gotten four or five flavors, but the container holds six and it always looks so empty to me when I don’t get the full six. So I decided to get the full six and share with Mr. K.

Here is what I ended up choosing.

Top row: Green tea, Kohala road, Honey lavender
Bottom row: Thai tea, Lychee cream, Azuki bean

A few of the ice creams were softer and melted faster but they were all quite delicious. The flavors were spot-on and all the ice creams were rich and creamy. And of course, I love all the tropical flavors offered.

The customer service was quite friendly here, much like their original location. I’m happy to see this place doing so well and we’ll definitely be back.

  1. Sounds like some new flavorful options, good….

  2. Umm I definitely want to go here! What is in the kohala road?

  3. They have such a great variety of flavors which can be experienced through their flights. It’s sometimes hard to make a decision on which flavors to try (there are so many good ones). 🙂

  4. That’s a great shop.  My fav flavor is the lychee cream.  🙂
