Buy a Pint, Give a Pint

Salt & Straw - Larchmont

240 N. Larchmont Blvd. , Los Angeles, CA


Salt & Straw’s Thanksgiving menu and Buy a Pint, Give a Pint promotion will be available at the Larchmont shop throughout November, including the festive ice cream flavors below. Buy a pint of any Thanksgiving flavor and Salt & Straw will donate a pint to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to give families a sweet treat on Thanksgiving.

Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey - A head rush of sweet and salty with a pinch of adventure. All the flavors of a roasted turkey, its juices and the caramelized onions underneath, are packed into a turkey fat caramel ice cream, then speckled with handmade fried turkey skin brittle.

Spiced Chevre Pumpkin Pie - Pumpkin cheesecake ice cream with an unexpected twist of maturity. Like scooping out the middle of a pumpkin pie and throwing it straight into a spicy, goaty, salty cheesecake. With goat cheese from Soledad Goats in Mojave, CA, this is guaranteed to rival any ice cream in yum-factor!

Honey Bourbon Corn Pudding - This flavor was inspired by one of the Malek’s oldest family recipes. Sweet, light, and buttery Corn Pudding is a staple on most Thanksgiving plates around the country. For their ice cream, they bake their own corn pudding using lots of locally-crafted bourbon from Ascendant Distillery in Santa Barbara.

Cranberry Walnut Stuffing - The delightful accompaniment to any Thanksgiving feast. This combination of cranberries with Central Coast walnuts is the perfect nuanced flavor combined with hearty nostalgia. Locally grown walnuts pair perfectly with molasses brown bread stuffing based ice cream.

Sweet Potato Casserole with Maple Pecans - Sweet potato ice cream, Vermont maple-infused marshmallow pillows, and pralined pecans. These pecans have a buttery sweetness with slight bitterness, delightfully cutting through the starchy potatoes.
