Throughout Pride Month, a number of businesses have launched products supporting the LGBTQ community, and this Skittles Rainbow Sherbet from Salt & Straw is another release that aims to offer support.

According to a Salt & Straw rep, this flavor required quite a bit of work to make. The Portland-based ice cream shop uses hundreds of pound of Skittles (sorted individually by hand) to make this sweet treat. Each flavor of Skittle is mixed with a corresponding color of sherbet before all the flavors are mixed together to create a rainbow swirl dessert. This flavor was "created to spread a message of love and support to the LGBTQ communities in our neighborhoods and across the nation." Proceeds from Salt & Straws Skittles Rainbow Sherbet will go to local equal rights groups and the limited-edition flavor will be available at the chain's Portland shop this weekend.
