In the spirit of the holiday countdown to Christmas, our Dessert Tour team takes you to Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous in San Francisco for their “Peppermint Stix” ice cream – among other tasty handcrafted ice cream flavors. Behind the spacious black and white shop stocked deliciously with a homemade goodies like peanut and almond brittle just to name one, and an ice cream counter hosting such flavors as “White Sesame”, “Candied Violet” and “Honeywine” (made of Ethiopian honey mead), is a husband and wife duo. Both were formerly pastry chefs that hailed from the Los Angeles Four Seasons Hotel. They were working with the Wolfgang Puck Group, in particular with Sherry Yard. They moved back up to their native home, San Francisco to start the creamery and haven’t looked back since.

James & Michelle: Ovaltine was malty, nostalgically reminiscent of movie theatre chocolate “Whoopers,” while their “Peppermint Stix” was perfect for the holidays. Michelle particularly liked the “Peppermint Stix” because of the candy cane chunks, and the minty taste. It’s almost like mint ice cream but better and more festive! Like a bite of Christmas in your mouth every single time. Michelle and James also tried the: “Pink Guava,” “Cardomom,” and “Rose.”
Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous handcraft a wide array of unique flavors and they nail all the flavors. The ice cream is good, creamy, flavorful, and refreshing. Their menu changes daily and is focused on seasonal products and themes.
