new today: blood orange RGB sorbet

Rachel’s Ginger Beer (or RGB as it’s known around town) is SO delicious that we love making sorbet out of it (in fact, we may be doing another RGB flavor later this year, hint hint). And right now our friends at RGB are getting the most amazing blood oranges from California and we've got this whole winter citrus thing going.

Blood orange RGB sorbet is available now through March 22nd.

two scoops forward, two scoops back

Last summer our kitchen team made this homemade strawberry pink peppercorn jam with fresh, organic strawberries from Viva Farms. We were so excited to pull out our homemade preserves last week and turn them into a delicious, fruity (but with a kick!) topping for our newest sundae. The combo of spicy-tart strawberry pink peppercorn jam with smooth, rich fudge brownie chunk ice cream is unexpected, but hey, it all works out! Grab the Opposites Attract sundae in any of our shops this weekend for a sweet date or a rich/peppery treat for no reason at all.

new today: fudge brownie chunk

As of today, we live in a world where fudge brownie chunks can coexist with chocolate ice cream & ribbons of chocolate sauce. Our newest flavor, fudge brownie chunk combines all three for a decadent, chocolate-filled treat. For the brownie, we made a flourless version, so it would have that fudgy, melt-in-your mouth quality that works so well in a scoop of ice cream. And they are gluten free!

Available through March 8th.

new today: vegan coconut chunk

And here's number two: vegan coconut chunk!!! Made with organic coconut milk, Theo Chocolate chunks & organic coconut flakes, this creamy vegan dream is back! 

Available through late April 26th. 

new today: brown butter caramel popcorn

We've got not one but two new flavors out today! First up: brown butter caramel popcorn. 

We started by popping Edison Grainery heirloom popcorn and added our homemade caramel sauce. Then we made a brown butter ice cream and swirled in the delish bits of caramel-y popcorn. We recommend enjoying a pint of this at home with your favorite movie, perhaps on a cold, rainy day?

Available through March 1st.

new today: brûléed grapefruit sorbet

To get the flavor of a juicy grapefruit covered in caramelized sugar, we started with the juice and zest of California grapefruit and added in our house vegan caramel sauce made with just lemon juice and cane sugar. The result is a flavor that starts bright and juicy and finishes complex and caramel-y.

Available now through February 15th.

Meet the artist: Katherine Moes

This winter we're excited to adorn our shops and home kitchens with this beautiful, limited edition print by Seattle artist Katherine Moes. Katherine's illustration displays the origins of some of our favorite winter flavors: clementine sorbet, Meyer lemon ice cream, brûléed grapefruit sorbet and Rachel’s Ginger Beer blood orange sorbet. Using gouache paint and brush, Katherine is both meticulous and playful as she breathes the life of these raw ingredients onto paper.

About the artist:
Katherine’s love of science inspired her to get a Bachelor of Science degree in biology. After college she tried her hand at zoo keeping, animal conservation, birding and vet assisting, before entering into full-time motherhood with her two children (all while painting animals in her spare time). This past year Katherine completed the Natural Science Illustration certificate program at the University of Washington. The marriage of her science education and artistic leanings found a path to further explore and grow. She loves being a creative participant within this illustration tradition.

Prints are available in shops and online.
