Ice SCREAM Menu:
The Great Candycopia
As darkness falls across the land, the candymaking hour is close at hand. Swarms of housemade trick-or-treat favorites-—Kit Kats, Reeses, Snickers, Heath bars-—are transformed into milk chocolate-buried crispy feuilletine, peanut butter trapped inside walls of chocolate, and almonds smothered in BOOrbon vanilla toffee before getting folded into a diabolically delicious salted butterscotch ice cream, stuck for eternity.
Don Bugito’s Creepy Crawly Critters
One, two, ten prickles along your skin. Dozens of critters are hiding in the grass by way of this matcha ice cream with toffee-brittle mealworms and chocolate crickets. Don Bugito in Oakland provided the delicious bugs, we delivered the creepy.
Jack o’ Lantern Pumpkin Bread
Hidden away in the back of an old cupboard is Grandma’s secret book of family spells. Wait, we mean.. recipes. A whispered incantation: one crooked smile of Jack, a pinch of warm spice, the tender hunks of just-baked pumpkin bread, and generous swaths of whipped cream cheese frosting will leave you enchanted.
Black Cat Licorice & Lavender
Rounding the corner with a ghastly squeal, a jet-black figure pounces on your shadow. In this ominous, unexpected flavor, we’ve conjured up superstition with a silky, pitch-dark anise and fennel caramel with luminous salted lavender ice cream. We wouldn’t turn our backs if we were you.
Double Bubble Toil & Trouble (vegan)
In the middle of our lab, a cauldron boils. Into the pot goes every color of fruit, while puffs of ethereal blue fizzle and shoot. Under midnight’s dark cloak, elements together boil and smoke. Our kitchen together had their fun, creating this potion of bright bubble gum.
