Haven’t we given fro-yo enough press for now? Even the “f”, “r” “o”, and “y” keys are wearing down on our keyboards. It’s time to give ice cream its day in the sun, or at least time out of the freezer. And with all of this talk about Farrell’s making a comeback (with the much anticipated opening its first OC shop in Mission Viejo on Oct. 27), it has us thinking about Hans Homemade Ice Cream in Santa Ana, an independent mom-and-pop-shop that’s been churning fresh ice cream daily (on the premises) for nearly 40 years.
And starting today for one week, owners Hans and Judy Biermann are giving Greer’s OC readers two large hot fudge sundaes for the price of one.
We are certain that you will adore Hans ice creams: nearly 50 flavors to choose from, including this month’s most popular: praline pecan, Swiss orange chip, cookies and cream, and pumpkin. If you have a special request just tell Han; he’ll gladly make it for you.
Open 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. 3640 S Bristol St. in Santa Ana. 714.979.8815.
