Here’s the Scoop [Montecito, Santa Barbara]

Melanie Wong | Jun 10, 201311:25 PM    

Another long overdue report . . .

I heard about Here’s the Scoop from the friend I visited in LA. On the drive back, January 2, 2012, I made a point to stop to check it out.

Locally grown fruits transformed into vibrant gelato and sorbetto seasonal flavors are the house specialty. The proprietor was happy to let me continue tasting until I found something to my liking. And even more so when she learned that I was from San Francisco. She exclaimed, “We love San Franciscans. They understand what we’re trying to do here.”

This shows the flavors available in January.

Not everything works, but don’t give up, just keep tasting. Some of the gelati were overspun or too icy, but I still found much to love in the pure and direct taste. The rich nut flavors and vibrant citrus flavors especially popped for me. Here’s the Clementine sorbet and Honey Almond gelato in a waffle bowl.

Usually I’m not into waffle cones or bowls. Yet my friend promised they were top notch and they are. Available in chocolate also, on my second visit in April 2012, I sampled several flavors again and ordered the Blood Orange sorbet and Butter Pecan gelato in the chocolate waffle. Great combination, expensive but worth it.
