How this Flavor was Born

Creating an Earl Grey ice cream has been on our list for some time. Discovering a local black tea as delicious as Winterwoods Inland Grey was the catalyst we needed to finally check the box. This black tea with delicate notes of bergamot, orange peel, and cornflower beg to be infused with rich cream and wildflower honey – think London fog gone wild!

Key/Local Ingredients

Winterwoods Tea Company – Spokane, WA
Queen Bee Honey – Clark Fork, ID

Pairs well With

We would suggest a split scoop with our Orange and Dark Chocolate Freckles or Sasquatch ice cream. Also pairs well with a waffle cone cookie, corduroy blazers, and conversations with people smarter than yourself.

How this Flavor was Born

We created this ice cream with two things in mind: One – How can we feature Athol Orchards Apple Cider Syrup in our ice creams and two – how much Fall can we pack into a single flavor. We love finding quality and creative local ingredients to build ice cream flavors around and this apple cider syrup definitely fits the bill! Nikki Conley and her family (pictured above) create this farm-crafted syrup from their antique/heirloom apple orchard just down the road from Sandpoint.
One taste and you begin to think of falling leaves, cool mornings, flannels, and sweater weather! The spicy, herby, and somewhat citrusy cardamom and vanilla ice cream create the foundation for the syrup swirl. Rounding out the flavor is a praline we create using pumpkin seeds, brown sugar, local wildflower honey (Queen Bee out of Clark Fork), butter, and sea salt.

Key/Local Ingredients

Athol Orchards Apple Cider Syrup – Athol, ID
Queen Bee Honey – Clark Fork, ID

Pairs well With

We would suggest a split scoop with our Mill Town Vanilla or our Pumpkin Pie ice cream. Also pairs well with warm Honeycrisp cider, your favorite wool sweater, and deep philosophical conversations about handcrafted boot

Three years! We are so excited to share this momentous moment with those that helped us get here, all of you!

Join us March 26th, 2018 Noon-8pm for free ice-cream.

Here is what you need to know:

We will be giving out free scoops of our specialty ice-cream.  Our flavors will be a little different, because…

They will be served and inspired by some of our favorite businesses in Sandpoint.

Evans Brothers-Will be pulling shots for free affogatos from Noon-4pm.

Our flavors are as follows:

Smoked  Peaches and Cream Crisp inspired by Wildwood Grilling

We will also have a Puppy Ice-Cream, for our furrier fans. This will be served out of the ice-cream bike outside of the shop. While we love all four-legged friends, they must stay outside. (sorry)

The only items for purchase will be coffee drinks and pints. When they are gone they are gone. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

Please note, while this is a completely free ice-cream day, we want to give to a cause that is very important to us… Education! To do this, we will have a bin set aside for donations. All donations will go to the Panhandle Alliance for Education, a wonderful organization working hard to support and encourage Teachers and Students in the Idaho Panhandle.

Most, if not all of our Scoopers during this event will be guests from the businesses mentioned above. They are graciously giving of their time to celebrate with us. So, please be patient and encouraging as they do their best to scoop ice-cream. It is not as easy as it looks.

Last but not least, tell anyone and everyone. Let’s Party.

Happy Birthday To Us!

 

Just Plain Chocolate

Screen Shot 2019-03-06 at 10.27.24 PM.png

We value simplicity without compromising quality and “Just Plain Chocolate” is a delicious example of that. By churning Direct Trade, Single Origin cocoa and Askinosie chocolate into our dairy we are taking “Chocolate Ice-Cream” to a whole new level. In fact, the name “ Just Plain Chocolate” is a bit of an inside joke here at the shop, because Askinosie chocolate is anything but plain. They not only produce exquisite chocolate without adding soy but they also use their craft to aid in community development. They were the first chocolate makers to trade directly with Tanzania cocoa farmers and we proudly use their Tanzanian chocolate in this ice cream.

If you want to know more about Askinosie Please check them out at askinosie.com

The only thing left to do now is to get yourself a sample. Meet us at the shop.

Hours:

Sunday – Thursday 12PM – 8PM
Friday & Saturday 12PM – 9PM
