I started drawing this after actually having the ice cream in question: orange blossom honey ice cream with orange pulp, with a Hangar 24 Orange Wheat reduction on top, made as an individual serving and cooled with liquid nitrogen. It was fantastic. So much so that I decided, while eating it, that a comic about Redlands making ice cream needed to happen.
The place that makes it is A La Minute in downtown Redlands. I would probably go there more often than is really healthy if I still lived in the Inland Empire.In the big group shot, from left to right: Fontana, Colton, Riverside, San Bernardino, Redlands, Loma Linda. This is also not the first time I’ve drawn Manuel’s I-want-your-food-give-it-to-me face.
