Summer may be coming to an end, but ice cream season doesn’t. Heading in to Fall we could have focused on the warm flavors of spice and pumpkin like everybody else, but this year we decided to focus on “Back to School”. Inspired by our favorite books we read as a kid, we decided to take the concept of “Back to School” to the next level; books like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, One Thousand and One Nights, Joy Luck Club, The Giving Tree, and the myth of Persephone and Hades. We wanted to capture the magic and joy of reading these books as a child and bring them to life in taste.
graham cracker, blueberry jam, violet marshmallow
Inspired by one of our favorite children’s books Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Violet is an evocative mix of graham cracker, blueberry jam, and housemade violet flower marshmallows. Like the iconic character, the flavor is a sassy blueberry pie of attitude with a play on texture that is sure to take you back to bedtime stories.
Moroccan mint tea leaf, cardamom soil
Deserts. Souks. The heat of mirage and spice. And the mystery of one thousand and one nights. Inspired by the tales of One Thousand and One nights, this flavor takes you on a journey through the tales of the Middle East and the fabled Aladdin. This delicate blend of Moroccan mint and cardamom will take you past the dunes to an exotic journey of flavor.
lychee, li hing mui, candied cashew
Inspired by the book, Joy Luck Club, this flavor is a journey of East meets West. Fusing lychee, li hing mui, and candied cashew, this flavor is a blend of traditional and contemporary. Notes of sweet flowery fruit speckled with salty nut will bring you back to the corner apothecary that nana used to go to.
green apple, matcha, apple cider ganache
There’s no greater joy than the love of child, so they say. Fortunately, we created that love in the Giving Tree with the wholesome blend of green apple, matcha, and apple cider ganache. Inspired by one of the greatest children’s books ever, the Giving Tree is a blend of the familiar with the exotic reminiscent of unconditional and romantic love.
pomegranate, apricot jam
It’s already Fall, but we can’t wait for Spring. Inspired by the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades, Persephone is a taste of new Spring with pomegranate and apricot jam. This refreshing blend of sweet and tart will thaw even the coldest of winters and hearts.
The Back to School seasonal menu is now available at the Lower East Side shop, Time Out Market New York, and Long Island City Pop-Up.
