We won’t tell you about the next topic, because we know you know the following truth: ice cream often relies on a certain breakfast superstar to give it both weight and punch.

No, we’re not even kidding, uh, because eggs have played a famous role in an assortment of cold, cream-style confections over the years.

But in fact, create an ice cream that is inspired by an unusual egg dish, a singularly tasty creation, a little tart, sometimes spicy, and not at all sweet?

It takes a thrill of whimsical fun, which Salt & Straw brings to its limited-time Summer Picnic ice cream series.

There are five so whimsical and hot flavors on the artisan ice cream company’s lineup, with Honey Cinnamon Fried Chicken, Nocino Chocolate Cherry Pie, Pink Rose Watermelon Sorbet and a brie and fig cheesecake. the al fresco gourmet feels.

But it’s the Deviled Egg Custard w/ Smoked Black Tea that may get ice cream lovers talking, because eggs, essential to ice cream though they are frequently, rarely get top marks beyond the offerings. eggnog-type seasonal foods.

Yes, the stuffed egg, this mainstay of the picnic, is the surprise guest of honor here.

But wait: is ice cream really full of chopped deviled eggs?

As for what’s in this original ice cream?

“We started with an egg yolk custard topped with Kala Namak, an umami-rich black salt mined near the base of the Himalayas, sprinkled with smoked tea-infused shortbread crumbs (a fun way to mimic the classic bacon filling)”, reveals the Salt & Straw team on its site.

Steven Smith Teamaker is a partner on this tangy creation.

But in the same way that deviled eggs can disappear from a picnic platter in minutes, if a crowd of deviled egg lovers are nearby, the Summer Picnic Series ice creams won’t be around for long.
