Collaboration with Saloon in Davis Square

Our Davis Square neighbors, Saloon, took our new Sharkleberry Fin Kool-Aid Sorbet, created to remember our friend and colleague Pete Deacon, and came up with the delightful drink, "For Pete's Sake". They top our sorbet with rose bubbles, an Aperol-coconut milk-sherry-reserve-vinegar reduction topped with a flaming lime filled with overproof rum. It's a perfect way to raise a glass and celebrate Pete, who we lost far too early.

All Stores Open Normal Hours On Memorial Day

Carrot Cake Ice Cream Available For Limited Run

Imagine making a carrot cake but you replace the flour with ice cream. That’s what eating our Carrot Cake Ice Cream is like. One of founder Vincent Petryk first featured flavors, he uses cream as his palette and adds shredded carrots marinated in brown sugar, walnuts, raisins, and a touch of cinnamon. All you need is a spoon!
This is a limited run flavor so hurry in.
