Portland, OR-based ice cream brand Salt & Straw is doing a rare New York City pop-up to offer New Yorkers limited-time FREE scoops of their new summer flavors.

The pop-up takes place at Blue Stripes Cacao Shop [28 E 13th Street] on Friday June 9th from 4-7pm. The menu will feature 3 new Salt & Straw flavors exclusively available for the month of June from Salt & Straw’s Upcycled Food Series, which highlights ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away.

Flavors include:

Cacao Pulp & Chocolate Stracciatella Gelato which includes cacao gelato made using the whole pod including the shell and pulp. The gelato is striped with ribbons of melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate stracciatella.

Lemon Curd & Whey, a tart and tangy gelato is infused with The Spare Food Co.’s upcycled whey based, chef-crafted, climate-friendly probiotic sparkling Lemon & Ginger Spare Tonic.

Salted Caramel & Okara Cupcakes (V) made in collaboration with Renewal Mill features a salted coconut oat milk ice cream base studded with bits of dark chocolate cupcakes, frosted with vegan caramel and featuring okara flour, a flour made from the pulp leftover when making soy milk.

Other options include:

Sea Salt w/ Caramel Ribbons: One of Salt & Straw’s most popular and best selling flavors, this combines Guatemalan fleur de sel ice cream with ribbons of housemade, hand-burned caramel.
