The ice cream company makes ice cream that’s about more than ice cream. “We make ice cream about the ingredients we use and the farms and artisans they come from. About how we cook and freeze and candy and sort and burn and smash and hand-drizzle and ribbon and spoon and sprinkle all of our ingredients in intriguing and unexpected ways.”

On any given day, Salt & Straw will be scooping at least 36 flavors for Guests to enjoy! Curious what these flavors might be? While there is a list of ice cream flavors such as Cinnamon Snickerdoodle, Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, and Freckled Mint Chocolate Chip, don’t be surprised to find intriguingly unique choices such as Pear & Blue Cheese, Honey Lavender, and Olive Oil.
