Salted Honey Pistachio

The simplicity of pistachio, honey, sea salt speckled with tiny bits of candied ginger come together in honor of a great man, yet simple man, Benedetto Manasseri, an Italian Moor and patron saint of Catholics of African descent the world over.  Although illiterate, he was known for his deep, intuitive understanding of theology and Scripture and for his love of cooking and serving others. He was beatified by Pope Benedict XIV in 1743 and canonized by Pope Pius VII in 1807.

Dirty Mind

Our tribute to His Royal Purple Highness  and our favorite sudio album released by Prince of the same name, our seasonal summer blackberry custard is flavored with Texas Blackberry Melomel wine made with estate grown blackberries. We dirtied it up with chunks of brownies and our juicy blackberry compote.

Mango Peach Cobbler

A mash-up of two of the most vibrant, sacred and widely used stone fruits in the Afro-Caribbean dessert and pastry culture, this flavor features bites of two different sweet and rustic Southern-style cobblers into our sweet buttermilk ice cream.

Our homage to Stagecoach Mary, the first African American woman to carry mail with a rifle and a shot gun is truly special.  Our Caramel Stracciatella is layered with Bittersweet Dark Chocolate, our house made Ethiopian Pralines which emit a sweet start with a savory finish, and Texas whiskey caramel swirl.

HTown’s Southern Hip-Hop Culture, known as the iconic “Third Coast" is represented in three chopped and screwed flavors of our own creation in one mouthwatering all-fruit sorbet: Tropicherry, Berrygrape and Limeapple.  Shout out to The Tre, Sunnyside, Mo'City, Pearland, Acres Shakers, South Park and Port Arthur and the artists who made the culture what it is. If mixtapes had a flavor they’d taste just like this.

New Flavor

The famous Bahamian cocktail known as the Goombay Smash, created by the late Emily Cooper more than a half century ago, at the Blue Bee Bar in New Plymouth. While the recipe to Ms. Emily's rum & fruit cocktail remains a family secret, the Goombay is filled with the tastes of the islands. Our version is a rum-free citrus and coconut symphony with passion fruit playing the lead.

Vintage Vanilla Ice Cream

Ode to our inspiration, Edmond Albius, who was an important figure in the cultivation of the vanilla bean, our rich, creamy and sweet, our vanilla custard is slow-cooked custard blended steeped with vanilla beans harvested from Reunion Island, or Ilse Bourbon, Edmond's birthplace.

DK CHOC PRALINE PECAN _edited.png

Smooth dark chocolate ganache ice cream made with a blend of Black Cocoa, which emits a smoother non-bitter taste, and the N’awlins crunchy creaminess of candied praline pecans.

Lemon Chiffon

When freshness meets creaminess and simplicity. Meyer Lemon Custard heightened with Terpeneless Lemon Oil gives this PLK Fan Fave Flavor a distinctive aroma the flavor of a lemon pound cake.

BROWN BUTTER PECAN WITH BUTTER PECAN COOKIES.jpg

History tells us that African Americans used what they had, what they had access to, to create the ice cream indulgence known as Butter Pecan when Vanilla ice cream was off limits to them. Ours features roasted pecans and our house-made Butter Pecan Cookies that are folded into our Brown Butter base (which we think could be eaten all by itself).

AUNT SALLIES_edited.png

Sallie Shadd, a freed slave who in the 1870’s achieved rock star status with her concoction of frozen cream, sugar, and strawberries. Dolly Madison was reportedly so impressed with Shadd’s strawberry ice cream that she served it at President James Madison’s second Inauguration Ball in 1813. Our strawberry custard is paired with poundcake, sweet strawberry compote and strawberry balsamic caramel sauce.

Cinnamon Dulce Caramel Ice Cream

Named for the Chef’s eldest Auntie of the same name, this ice cream is an emulsion of simple ingredients, such as brown sugar, Ceylon and La Canela South American cinnamon. We gave it a kick with a salted caramel ribbon.
