Salt & Straw Is Reissuing 5 Ice Cream Flavors For Its Nostalgic April Series

Salt & Straw, the popular ice cream brand known for its creative and unique flavors, is reissuing five nostalgic flavors this month in what it's calling the "Vault Series," according to a press release. The selection, a celebration of milestones in the history of the company, is being released in honor of the chain's 12th anniversary on April 22. And with more than 1,200 flavors developed and released over the years, fans might be surprised to see which flavors made the cut.

This collection includes: Black Olive Brittle & Goat Cheese, Honey Marshmallow Rocky Road, Sweet Corn and Waffle Cones, Strawberry Cilantro Lime Cheesecake, and Mango Habanero IPA Sorbet — a vegan option. This dairy-free sorbet, for those who need a refresher, is made with Wynwood Brewing's Laces IPA, fresh habanero, mangoes, and citrus. And the unexpected combinations don't end there.

Salt & Straw's ice cream flavors this month

The traditional dairy-based flavors include just as many flavor twists. The Strawberry Cilantro Lime Cheesecake, which was part of Salt & Straw's first summer berry series, is a strawberry ice cream swirled with cilantro lime cheesecake and bits of graham cracker crust to complete the flavor profile. Next up, the Sweet Corn and Waffle Cones — a flavor that the brand made in partnership with chef April Bloomfield – is corn ice cream with a ribbon of brown butter caramel and pieces of charred corn and crunchy chocolate-covered waffle cone.

The Black Olive Brittle & Goat Cheese is a throwback to Salt & Straw's beginnings in Los Angeles; it's the first flavor that the company introduced there. The ice cream base is made with cave-aged goat cheese in collaboration with Cypress Grove Creamery. This is laced with crisp bites of butter brittle made from cured black olives. Finally, Honey Marshmallow Rocky Road, which first debuted in 2012, plays on the classic flavor. It's cinnamon and ancho chile chocolate ice cream with candied hazelnuts and honey marshmallows folded throughout.

So, whether you are a long-time fan or someone who's new to the brand, the Vault Series of past flavors offers something for everyone. The selection, released March 31, can be found in Salt & Straw stores or ordered online for nationwide shipping.
