Salt & Straw's Eat Your Flowers Series is a floral ice cream collection that was inspired by local spring flowers and fruits that pair well with them. The flavors of jasmine, hibiscus and wildflowers are the focus of the decadent springtime desserts, and the series even includes vegan-friendly varieties like Mathilde’s Hibiscus & Coconut Sherbet with a coconut cream base.
At its locations across the country, Salt & Straw is also scooping flavors like Jasmine Milk Tea & Chocolate, which shares the experience of jasmine tea that's "steeped in cream and sugar for 12 minutes, not one minute more or less." Other standouts include Wildflower Honey with Ricotta Walnut Lace Cookie and Rhubarb Crumble with Toasted Anise.
