The Great Candycopia

This scoop blends together milk chocolate feuilletine, peanut butter coated with chocolate, and bourbon vanilla toffee almonds, all folded in a salted butterscotch ice cream. It’s the brand’s take on OGs like Ki Kat and Snickers.

Double Bubble Toil & Trouble (Vegan)

Salt & Straw created this potion in their lab to taste like bubble gum. You’ll spy pieces of fruit, but you’ll only taste the candy sweetness of the blue concoction.

Ya know, something to get the cricket taste out of your mouth.
