It's a ‘Vegandulgence' January, at Salt & Straw Ice Cream

The Elvis Peanut Butter Banana Split is just one of the artisanal offerings at the boutique scoop shops.

What to Know

  • All January
  • Five limited-time vegan flavors
  • Larchmont, Arts District, Downtown Disney, and more locations

Encountering a host of flavors, whether they're new to us, kind of familiar, or the same spicy/sweet/tangy/salty zing we gravitate to most of the time, is something that happens on a daily basis.

But, let's be real: The holidays have a way of over-flavoring our senses, leaving us to feel as if all other months are depleted in the "new flavor" department.

Not January, and not at Salt & Straw, the small-batch ice cream company that's become known for introducing a small line-up of nom-able flavors, each and every month.

Yes, we said "nom-able" and not nominal, just to clarify.

And now for the newest noms in the just-debuted Vegandulgence series. Yep, these are vegan ice creams, all of them, and yep again, they'll be available throughout January 2019, at your local Southern California Salt & Straw scoop shop.

Find one nearby in Venice, the Arts District, Downtown Disney, and a few other spots.
