Mitchell’s Pumpkin Ice Cream Gets Around!

You don’t have to go to Bernal Heights to try Mitchell’s Pumpkin Ice Cream. These guys get around town! They distribute their ice cream throughout San Francisco, and on an evening stroll down Union Street, Master P. and I discovered their Pumpkin Ice Cream at my favorite frozen yogurt place.

Mitchell’s Pumpkin Ice Cream is a revelation. You think you’ve tasted Pumpkin Ice Cream, but when you try Mitchell’s you realize that you really haven’t… until now. One of my favorite Keats poems comes to mind. I know this one by heart. It’s about discovering new realms. Keats found an awesome translation of Homer. He was so moved, he compared his feelings to Western explorers discovering the Pacific Ocean. OK, I will admit, Mitchell’s ice cream isn’t THAT amazing except when sequestered to food experiences. I do love this poem however and will share it with you.

Much have I traveled in the realms of gold
And many goodly states and kingdoms seen;
Round many western islands have I been
Which bards in fealty to Apollo hold.
Oft of one wide expanse had I been told
That deep-browed Homer ruled as his demesne;
Yet never did I breathe its pure serene
Till I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold:
Then I felt like some watcher of the skies
When a new planet swims into his ken;
Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes
He stared at the Pacific—and all his men
Looked at each other with a wild surmise—
Silent, upon a peak in Darien.

Master P. and I looked at each other with a wild surmise, silent on a peak in Pacific Heights.

Mitchell’s Pumpkin Ice Cream gets around, and not just at delis like Michaeli’s. Burger Meister is flaunting it in their Pumpkin Shake. Citizen pumpkin blogger Karl L. came through with the evidence. It’s clear from his photo that this is an “Intel Inside” situation!

The other good news? According to their website, Pumpkin is available until February at Mitchell’s!
