November ’14



The Great War Doughnut Sundae

In Honor & Reflection upon the 100th anniversary of the commencement of World War One, we’ve drafted old steel-pot kettles into the United States Frying Corps.  The resulting donut dirigibles go airborne, under bombardment of Vanilla Ice Cream and a raining shrapnel of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, frying high above the mire of sticky hot caramel mud slung by our lads and lassies in the trenches below…


November Ice Cream Flavors

Cranberry Custard: Heirloom New Jersey Cranberries Baked with Cardamom, Cinnamon Sticks, Star Anise, Cloves, Orange Peel, and Lemon Juice.
