Salt & Straw

The Limited Ice Cream Flavors of August at Salt & Straw are part of “The Harvest Festival Series”, an ode to the flavors of the fall harvest.

The flavors are:

  • Beecher’s Flagship Cheese with Apple Pie and Cinnamon Rolls: Cinnamon rolls get the fall treatment with a crisp and bright apple pie filling. This spicy batter is then crumbled into a sweet and creamy Beecher’s Flagship Cheese ice cream with a gooey cinnamon swirl.
  • Caramel Apple Sorbet: Ribbons of vanilla-infused caramel are drizzled in a simple, crisp apple juice sorbet.
  • Poached Pear Sorbet with Pinot: Freshly picked pears are macerated in cinnamon and star anise Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2019. The pears are then churned in a spicy sorbet and folded with classic Double Fold Vanilla ice cream for that 50 fall flavor /50.
  • Prune & Chocolate Hazelnut Shortbread: A balancing act between a subtle and sweet coconut cream and bold and tangy plums. Chocolate-flecked hazelnut shortbread crumbles and drops of plum marmalade are swirled for a motley mix of sweet, tart and bold wonders. This one is also vegan.
  • Pumpkin Pie and Spicy Goat Cheese: S&S’ take on pumpkin spice goes a bit like this: creamy goat cheese ice cream spiked with homemade pumpkin spice wraps, swirls of decadent pumpkin pie filling.

I’ll take one of everything, please!
