The La Jolla location of Sprinkles Cupcakes now also offers their signature ice cream and cookies. Sprinkles Ice Cream was introduced a few years ago, with both standalone locations and ones incorporated into their cupcake bakeries. We visited the Beverly Hills standalone Sprinkles Ice Cream shop two years ago and I remember being impressed with the space and all the flavor options, though I didn’t enjoy the long wait.
The small San Diego store looks pretty much the same, except they now have waffle cones and ice cream toppings on display. Much like their cupcakes, they have a schedule of rotating ice cream flavors. You can get ice cream, ice cream cones, ice cream sundaes, ice cream cookie sandwiches and even ice cream cupcake top sandwiches.
Sprinkles Sandwich: Red velvet & chocolate cupcake tops and peanut butter cup ice cream
I went in craving both their cupcakes and ice cream, so I loved the idea of combining both. The cupcake tops were served slightly warmed. The peanut butter cup ice cream was pretty good and I liked the broken pieces of peanut butter cups mixed inside. It did melt rather quickly though.
Coffee Fudge Almond, Red Velvet Ice Cream, Sprinkles, with Red Velvet Waffle Cone
We also shared an ice cream cone. I enjoyed both ice cream flavors, especially the sweet cream base for the red velvet ice cream. The red velvet cone was quite colorful though didn’t have a very strong red velvet flavor.
