Learning that an adventurous ice cream-making outfit is incorporating savory tastes in its scoops?
That's not all that unusual nowadays, when bacon bits and cheese crumbles and all sorts of dinner-type bites can end up in the dessert course.
So when you learn that Salt & Straw, the started-in-Portland, now-rocking-SoCal scoop shops are going the savory route for Fourth of July, well, you're not too surprised.
But here's the twist: The heartier, spicier ingredients aren't showing up in the ice cream, as they have been in recent years, but rather in grill-ready comestibles, specifically sausages from Portland's own Olympia Provisions.
For the meat-minded company and Salt & Straw have partnered-up on three take-home, make-on-the-grill party packs tailored to Independence Day celebrations.
The Firecracker Pack, includes both brats and Austrian cheese sausages, as well as a trio of Salt & Straw flavors selected for their Fourth of July flavor.
The cold confections' theme? Think berries, which have long given July 4 festivities a certain fruity flair, from cakes to cookies to pies.
If you're looking for a slightly different spin, but still a to-go pack that has both dinner and dessert elements, check out the Stars, Stripes, and Pints Pack or the Grillin' and Chillin' Pack.
Each pack is priced at $75.
