new today: black sesame

We are super excited about our newest flavor, black sesame ice cream! We've been experimenting with using traditional Asian flavors in our ice cream, but it can be hard to source traditional Asian ingredients close to home! Sesame seeds, for example, are typically grown in an tropical regions like Myanmar and Indonesia -- though you may already know that if you watched the first season of Silicon Valley. Ian (our Head Chef) searched around until he found delicious black sesame seeds that are grown locally. We weren't able to find 'em in the PNW, but Texas had some for us! We churn ground black sesame seeds with our usual combo of sugar and local milk and cream. The result is a nice, deep flavor profile of toasted nuttiness. 

Available in the shops through April 5th.
