RIP Jack Mitchell, Long Live Mitchell's Ice Cream

Gary Soup Jun 16, 2007 07:27 AM

I'm not much of an ice cream eater at all, but I just might seek out a small cupful of Mitchell's today to honor Jack Mitchell of the OTHER Mitchell Brothers who, along with the likes of Earle Swensen and Bud Scheidelman, made SF probably the greatest ice cream city in the world without ice cream weather. Jack Mitchell died last week at 89, the Chron reported today.

    Gary,
    Thanks for posting this. I'm with you - off to Mitchell's for a scoop of Mexican Chocolate.

      The obit said Jack Mitchell's favorite flavor was strawberry. Don't think I've ever tried the basic vanilla, chocolate, strawberry flavors at Mitchell's. Will try to stop by Tay Tah Cafe on Solano in Albany which sells Mitchell's and see if they have strawberry.

      "made SF probably the greatest ice cream city in the world without ice cream weather"

      Well, worded, Gary.
