I love Thanksgiving dinner, and I love ice cream...but I'm having a hard time loving these weird Thanksgiving ice cream flavors at a scoop shop in California.
If you've never heard of Salt & Straw, it's an ice cream company on the west coast, and they do interesting things with their flavors. Like, at Halloween, they sold flavors made out of pig's blood and crickets. Yum?
They just rolled out their Thanksgiving flavors, and they aren't QUITE as extreme as those Halloween ones, but they're still not like normal ice cream. The flavors are:
1. Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey, with turkey fat and skin mixed in. (Excuse me?? No.)
2. Sweet Potato Casserole with Maple Pecans. (that one actually sounds really good!)
3. Roasted Cranberry Sauce Sorbet. (also, yum)
4. Roasted Peach and Sage Cornbread Stuffing. (That one actually sounds like a good stuffing, but I don't want it as ice cream)
5. And Spiced Goat Cheese and Pumpkin Pie. (this one might work for me)
A few of these are reruns from their Thanksgiving pack last year, but the cornbread stuffing and cranberry sauce are brand new.
But now . . . the price. To get one pint of each shipped to you, it'll run you $65, plus up to another $50 or $60 for the air shipping they have to use for ice cream.
Y'all, I thought Florida was weird...but California is up here putting turkey skin in ice cream and charging over $100 for it.
