Who needs mayonnaise-flavored ice cream when you can chow down on flavors inspired by the Thanksgiving dinner table?
Salt & Straw, an Oregon-based creamery with stores up and down the west coast, announced on Monday, November 5, that its latest collection of ice creams is meant to mimic a five-course Turkey Day dinner, but in ice cream form. In other words, the holiday-themed frozen desserts have been crafted to taste exactly like popular Thanksgiving dishes.
Flavors include savory courses such as Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey, which according to a press release shared with Us Weekly features buttery turkey brittle that’s been folded into a turkey fat caramel ice cream, and Roasted Peach & Sage Cornbread Stuffing, which contains sage-infused ice cream with cornbread cookies and spiced peach jam.
On the sweet side, the collection boasts a Sweet Potato Casserole with maple pecans ice cream and a Spiced Goat Cheese & Pumpkin Pie flavor. To really nail down the taste of a casserole, Salt & Straw infused sweet potato ice cream with “an unbelievably light ribbon of mouth-watering maple syrup marshmallow fluff and homemade candied pecans.” As for the goat cheese and pumpkin pie flavor, that selection features goat cheese and streaks of fresh baked pumpkin pie filling.
Last but not least, Salt & Straw’s vegan Roasted Cranberry Sauce Sorbet is the chain’s take on the holiday staple. It’s made from roasted cranberries, cranberry juice and candied cranberry jam — all of which have been prepared with ruby beauties from Washington state.
The quintet of “warm, comforting, mouth-watering ice cream flavors” are available by the scoop, flight or pint at all Salt & Straw scoop shops, and can be purchased online through November 21.
What’s more? For every pint purchased during the month of November, Salt & Straw will donate a pint to a local organization in each city. Charities benefiting include the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and Northwest Harvest in Seattle.
