Foodie Friday: Handel’s homemade ice cream – Cross Timbers Gazette | South Denton County | Mound of flowers
Regarding food, here are my top 3: (# 3) Eggs Benedict; (# 2) Steak; (# 1) Ice cream. And ever since I’ve been eating Handel’s ice cream, this number one spot has only solidified.
We were excited to visit Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream Highland Village location, where we were able to visit franchise owner Craig Moore who also owns the Flower Mound Handel location. Craig has years of experience in the dessert world, previously owning Nothing Bundt Cake stores. But like me, Craig loves ice cream, and so when he found Handel, based in Ohio, he knew he had to come here to DFW.
What makes Handel’s homemade ice cream so much creamier than other ice creams? Craig told us it’s the high quality dairy products they use and the fact that they are fresh every other day.
When it comes to flavors, Handel’s has a flavor for everyone – whether you want something chocolaty, fruity, rich, light, whatever! My favorite flavor on their menu is Black Raspberry Chunk. Some of our team’s other favorite flavors if you haven’t tried them include: Graham Central Station, Monkey Business, and Chocoholic Chunk.
You can get your ice cream in a cup or on a cone. You can also buy them by the pint or by the pint to take them home. Or you can order sundaes, shakes, or their Hurricanes made with their vanilla ice cream and your choice of mixes.
Whatever you order, remember that one of Handel’s mottos is “We don’t skimp!” And boy, that’s right. Their only spoon is actually two spoons. Their double spoon is four spoons. And I don’t know what happens after that. Heaven I guess!
If you haven’t gone to try out what Handel has to offer, any time is a great time to go! It’s a treat that will please anyone, whatever their age and whatever the time of day!
