An LA Weekly food writer, following up her “30 Burgers in 30 Days” project, downed “30 Scoops in 30 Days,” bingeing on ice cream and gelato. Unlike her meat marathon, this one brought her to the 909.
Elina Shatkin visited Handel’s in Upland and concluded: “If all you ever know of Upland is this strip-mall ice cream shop, it’s well worth the trip.” (I hope she visited San Biagio’s too while she was there.)
Shatkin also visited Farrell’s in Santa Clarita; a Farrell’s has been proposed for Rancho Cucamonga, and longtime residents will remember the long-defunct one at Montclair Plaza.
Her wrapup gives Handel’s an honorable mention and lists Dr. Bob’s at the L.A. County Fair as a bonus — while giving the Fair’s location as Claremont. Has the Fair moved from Pomona? This might be her 31st scoop.
