1 - Chorizo and Caramel
This ice cream is a creation of chef Sam Mason of the OddFellows ice cream shop in Brooklyn, New York. On the menu, some flavors are already surprising, such as burnt marshmallow ice cream and olive oil, plus one made with Guinness beer. However, the strangest of the varieties found there may be that of chorizo and caramel, which is much sought after and strikes the perfect balance between sweet and salty. Is it good?
2 - The “larica”
Founded by former screenwriter Brian Smith, the Ample Hills ice cream parlor fits into a new wave of New York ice cream parlors that have conquered audiences crazy about the icy treat. Among the peculiar flavors is “The Munchies” - which means “larica” - which is an ice cream with a mix of pretzel and chips, salty Ritz crackers and mini M & Ms. It may be that with all this together you should really kill that little fom, eh?
3 - Sea urchin, mint and meringue
Opened by cousins Kim and Tyler Malek, Salt & Straw (from Portland) takes the concept of creative flavors to a whole new level. Imagine mixing sea creatures, herbs and spices in an ice cream? Well, the one you see in the image above is produced with sea urchins off the west coast of the United States infused with fresh mint leaves and pepper. For refined palates.
4 - Black Rice
Since opening in 2008, Van Leeuwen has attracted dedicated followers in New York. Among some different ones that are sold there are Ceylon cinnamon and Earl Gray tea.
