ORIGINAL DESSERTS: CHOOSE YOUR OWN ICE CREAM FLAVOR

ORIGINAL DESSERTS: CHOOSE YOUR OWN ICE CREAM FLAVOR Friday, March 16, 2012

Everybody like a Classic Sundae, one of those a vanilla-chocolate fudge Sundaes, with scatterings of nuts and candied sprinkles, swirls of whipped cream and topped, of course, with a cherry.

To a purist, there is no better example of the quintessential American dessert. And to you, we say, “You’re right.”

But to the unapologetically adventurous? Well, the Classic Sundae is rather vanilla, isn’t it? So it is unto you, we say, “You’re on.”

So tell us: is there a flavor of ice cream that you’ve always dreamed of tasting, but never could, because no one would make it?

We’ve done Bacon-Bourbon-and-Butterscotch Ice Cream. We’ve done a Sweet Corn Sorbet.

What we haven’t yet tried is that magical blend of flavors you’ve always wanted to, but have only dreamed of, tasting.

So name your flavor. And go ahead. Be bold. We want you to be bold.

At the end of each month, we’ll choose the most magical suggestion, whip up a recipe and serve that flavor as our “Flavor of the Month” the following month, all month long. Maybe even two flavors, if your suggestions are just that good. And we’ll do the same thing the next month, and month after month, until you run out of suggestions or we all run out of months.

So challenge us! Inspire us! Conspire with us! And let us treat you and all of Portland to your great idea.

Ask your server for more details, or simply hit us up on Facebook and tell us what you’d like.

Extra points, of course, for choosing a clever name to match your flavor.
