Since we were in Upland anyway, I easily convinced the Mrs. that after our pizza repast at San Biagio's we needed to pay a visit to dr. bob's for some dessert.
This is super-premium, hand crafted, in small batches, ice cream. The Mrs. had a sugar cone with one scoop of Brown Sugar Pecan ice cream. I had a waffle cone with a base scoop of Dark Chocolate and a top scoop of Tahitian Vanilla.
All three flavors were outstanding. Very creamy tasting, and the ice cream came out perfectly tempered directly from the dipping cooler. They use Scharffen Berger chocolate at dr. bob's, and this is really good stuff. Usually when I have chocolate ice cream, such as 31 Flavors or Hagen Dasz, I always need a drink of water afterwards, because the chocolate leaves a taste in my mouth that while a chocolatty taste, just does not feel right, leaving an almost chalky feeling. The ice cream at dr. bob's is completely different. It left a wonderful aftertaste in my mouth, it was not overbearing and I did not have any desire or need for water. The overall taste in my mouth for five minutes after finishing my ice cream was as if I had just that very second ate a very good, moist, chewy double chocolate brownie.
Their ice cream is not cheap, they don't charge by the scoop, but rather by weight, but it is well worth it.
A single sugar cone, and a double waffle cone came to $6.96.
One of the owners' kids (about 10 or 11 years old) was in the shop, and she demonstrated that these owners are no dummies. The kid fixed herself a two scoop cone, and then asked the young man working behind the counter how to ring it up, as she said that "Mom said I have to pay when I get ice cream." No one is going to eat up the profits in this ice cream shop.
