Lappert’s Ice Cream is one of our favorite places for ice cream in San Diego. Lappert’s Ice Cream serves super premium ice cream (at least 16% butterfat) and specializes in Hawaiian flavors like macadamia nut, kona coffee and more. They also serve the popular Dole Whip, the creamy soft serve pineapple dessert that is available at Disneyland.
This is the size of a small, which is a very generous serving. Dole whip is a popular dessert at Disneyland and Disneyworld. It’s only available at a handful of locations and we’re pretty lucky to have a Lappert’s in San Diego that serves it. The soft-serve concoction isn’t overly sweet, letting the pineapple flavor shine through. It’s much creamier than ordinary fruit-based sorbets or ice creams, which is what makes it so popular. I can never resist getting this here, especially since there are no long lines like at Disneyland.
Macadamia Nut Ice Cream
Macadamia Nut ice cream is our favorite flavor from Lappert’s. The ice cream is silky, rich and creamy. The macadamia nut flavor is very pronounced throughout the ice cream. It’s my favorite place for macadamia nut ice cream in San Diego.
Toasted coconut, macadamia nut and a caramel swirl. This used to be a previous favorite of mine, though this time I found it too sweet. Maybe I’m getting old.
Overall, we loved the ice creams and Dole Whip. You can also buy larger pints to take home which I often do since this place is a little far of a drive for me. I wish it wasn’t so out of the way, otherwise I’d be here all the time.
