What to Know
- Feb. 5-March 18
- Celebrating the artisanal ice cream company's 10th anniversary
- Brown Ale & Bacon is returning, as is Salted Caramel Cupcake
Life in LA Land is on the damper side as January 2021 wraps up, but any person who has spent a late winter afternoon around Southern California knows that sunshine always returns, the days do indeed grow longer, and we might even have a warm spell or two before winter concludes.
Which means we may be in the mood for ice cream, and not just any ice cream, but fancily-fashioned ice cream, but not just any fancy ice cream, but the kind of ice cream we recall loving during a past ice cream-eating episode.
Which is all to say this: Some of the popular past flavors created by the team at Salt & Straw, the started-in-Portland, now-found-in-SoCal company, are making a return in February.
On Feb. 5, to be exact, and only for a limited time.
But vaults don't creeeeak open without reason, and this particular vault opening is as sweet as a scoop of something frosty and flavorful: The dessert-perfect powerhouse will soon be marking its 10th anniversary.
Which means that favorites like Salted Caramel Cupcake (the first of the Salt & Straw flavors to include a baked good mix-in), Cinnatopia Cinnamon Bun (a treat invented by a second-grader), and Strawberry Tres Leches will again pop up on menus.
Rounding out the creamy quintet?
Citrus mavens who don't do dairy, get stoked: Lemon Cheesecake Crumble will make a return engagement.
Yep, good memory if you know the details on this one: Lemon Cheesecake Crumble is one of the former stars of the company's now-annual Vegandulgence series.
And adding a bit of dinner to dessert? Brown Ale & Bacon will be back to hearty-up your sweet-seeking experience.
Want a few of these tempting pints shipped to your house? Salt & Straw will be sending its vault goodies around the nation.
But don't dally: With the end of winter (almost) comes the end of this series. These five fanciful flavors head back into the vault on March 18.
