Fall Flavors

Ice cream makers embrace the pumpkin with seasonal menu updates.

Posted By on Fri, Sep 28, 2018 at 4:16 PM

Say what you want about the overabundance of pumpkin flavored stuff showing up in grocery stores — oatmeal, Cheerios, protein powders, Jell-O and applesauce, to name a few. But pumpkin spice ice cream? How can you be mad at that?

Charm School Social Club just launched its fall menu. Ice cream may traditionally be a summer treat (though really is there ever a bad time for ice cream?) but it's embracing the warmer, heavier flavors of the colder months.

There’s pumpkin pie with chunks of house-made graham crackers mixed in, tea time with cake crumbles, orange cardamom featuring pounds of freshly-squeezed and zested citrus, and hazelnut. For the nondairy eaters there’s a coconut-based orange cardamom and cashew-based hazelnut, plus a banana caramel sorbet.

Oh and speaking of ice cream, Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches, which has brought us concoctions like earl grey lavender, creamsicle and Key lime pie, just rolled out three new options for the fall: pumpkin spice, salted caramel and mint chocolate chip. These fall flavors are making their way around town and it may be a minute before they show up in a freezer near you, but keep checking back. They’re available all over the area, in markets and grocery stores like Ellwood Thompson’s and Shields Market, plus places like Sugar Shack, Galley Go-To, Latitude Seafood and Vasen Brewing.
