Two Los Angeles Foodie Favorites Collaborate on Fall's Must Have Treat

By Christina Najjar | October 17, 2018 | Food & Drink


Two major California foodie favorites have collaborated on the must-have treat of the fall. This treat, a limited edition ice cream, is the brainchild of two major cult food brands and the result is absolutely mouthwatering. McConnell's Fine Ice Creams x Jon & Vinny’s have a brand new Fall Flavor Collab, Mapled Squash & Ginger Cookies, which launched nationally earlier this month.

Award-winning chefs and restaurateurs Jon Shook & Vinny Dotolo are long-time fans of McConnell’s for their straight-forward flavors and authenticity. And the feeling is mutual, as McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams owners Michael Palmer and Eva Ein have long had a food crush on Jon & Vinny. The brands go so well together, you can even find McConnell’s alongside Jon & Vinny’s dishes on select Delta Airlines flights.

Through their admiration and collaboration over the years, they’ve become great friends. In the spirit of Fall, they came together to churn out a delicious new ice cream flavor that is nothing short of incredible.

Introducing the Fall sweet treat of your dreams, Mapled Squash & Ginger Cookies! A melding of roasted kabocha squash, caramelized to perfection and pureed with a dash of maple syrup, then paired alongside homemade buttery, slightly spicy, ginger cookies. It’s a sweet & savory ode to fall.

Like all McConnell’s ice creams, Mapled Squash & Ginger Cookies is made with Central Coast grass-grazed milk & cream and the finest local, sustainable and organic ingredients, staying true to McC’s 70-year-old dairy’s sweet legacy of keeping it real.

This new fall flavor is available this fall at all at all McConnell’s scoop shops (including their NEW shop in the newly opened Palisades Village), at J & V’s Son of a Gun and online via nationwide shipping for a limited time only. YES, you can get it anywhere in the US!
