Salt & Straw continues to demonstrate that not only listen to kids as customers, but they also aren’t afraid to draw inspiration and learn from them.
Tyler Malek, the founder of Salt & Straw, recently held a meeting with his "Board of Flavor Executives." This extra-special board was composed of the children who conceptualized the company's five new ice cream flavors. These creative kids were the winners of a story contest about the wildest ice cream flavors they could ever think of.
One of the kids, Rae, named his flavor, "Bottomless Limes. " Bottomless Limes is a Key Lime Pie ice cream sprinkled with chocolate bark and real pie crust. Asher, on the other hand, invented "The Adventurous Llamanaut." The Adventurous Llamanaut is a cherry-flavored ice cream mixed with pink and blue marshmallows. Whereas, Charlotte's "Rosie the Pink Flamingo" literally screams pink as it is made out of strawberry ice cream, pink gummy bears, and pink sprinkles. Cooper's creation was a take on mango-pineapple jelly and citrus mousse with raspberry sherbet and is called. This flavor was named "Triple Tropic Twist." Last but not the least, there was Bridget's "The Ice Cream of Moo. " The Ice Cream of Moo is a classic flavor with a twist: chocolate ice cream with a touch of salt, caramel, cashews, and cherry-laced chocolate ganache.
