If you’ve never drizzled honey over your cornbread or topped the warm side with a nice, thick pat of honey butter — you’ve been seriously missing out. There’s something about the combination of the savory corn and the sweet honey that just can’t be beat, especially during the summertime.
And McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams loves the flavors so much that it made the ultimate summer treat out of the clashing of corn and honey — Honey & Cornbread Cookies ice cream. The dairy treat folds wildflower honey from San Marcos Farms in Santa Barbara and homemade cornbread cookies into rich, thick ice cream.
The flavor is just one of the new limited-edition seasonal flavors to come from the scoop shop. The other limited flavors are Olive Oil & Salted Almonds and Wild Sweet Clover. Of course, the flavors are available to enjoy in-person at the Santa Barbara location, but you’ll be pleased to know you can also order pints online!
The ice cream shop ships to every single state except Alaska at a ground rate shipping cost of $14.99 or an overnight shipping cost of $99.99. The pints themselves are $12 each.
Should you purchase the Honey & Cornbread Cookies flavor online, each delicious spoonful will look a little something like this:
If you’re not willing to wait the 1–3 days it could take for a pint of this stuff to reach you, you could always do the next best thing, which involves freshly baked cornbread topped with a honey drizzle and served — you guessed it — à la mode.
And if you like the idea of making cornbread more of a sweet dessert than a savory side, you can find a ton of recipes — think everything from cornmeal churros to corn cake — on the Jiffy Mix website.
Serve up any of these sweet treats with a side of ice cream and you’ll be well on your way to having the best summer ever — at least in your kitchen.
