What’s on the Menu: Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream

ST. GEORGE — Can happiness be dished out in a scoop? How about blended into a milkshake or coated with chocolate and served on a stick?

Christmas might be just around the corner, but it’s always ice cream season for “What’s on the Menu” host Sheldon Demke. So this week, he took his friend Susi Lafaele to Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream in St. George to see what delicious treats they’re chilling.

Demke introduced his guest to the wonder of Handel’s ice cream pops. Perfect for parties, they’re a scoop of any flavor of ice cream on the menu dipped in rich chocolate.

‘Tis the season for holiday-inspired flavors, like peppermint stick, chocolate orange, White Christmas and eggnog. Demke and Lafaele tried all of them in a convenient four-scoop sampler.

“Their eggnog ice cream is to die for,” Lafaele said. “I could get it in a whole quart and have it gone before I even get home.”

Demke, on the other hand, preferred the peppermint stick and even asked for a milkshake with it, taking a trip down memory lane to being a kid at Christmas.

“It was completely magical,” he said. “When I think of the holiday season, I think of Handel’s.”

Handel’s has been serving up smiles to locals and tourists alike at their Bluff Street location since the summer of 2020. All of their 48 flavors, including butter pecan, cherry vanilla and orange pineapple, are made fresh daily in the store and at every location nationwide since 1945. With so many scrumptious menu items to choose from, it’s no surprise they were voted the community’s favorite ice cream parlor in this year’s Best of Southern Utah.
