Portland-based artisan ice cream chain Salt & Straw opened its first Orange County location this morning at Downtown Disney.
The ice cream shop features a rotating menu of flavors, featuring organic and sustainable ingredients, often locally sourced. "Classic" flavors available at the shop include Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, Chocolate Gooey Brownie, Black Olive Brittle & Humboldt Fog Goat Cheese, and Pots of Gold & Rainbows (think, Lucky Charms). "October Spooktacular" limited-edition flavors include Creepy Crawly Critters, featuring " real dark chocolate covered crickets and coconut toffee-brittle mealworms" in a "light and fresh green-grass ice cream."
If that's too much, opt for "The Great Candycopia" with "salted butterscotch ice cream and an abundance of homemade Snickers, Twix chunks, Heath bars, and peanut butter cups."
It’s $6 for one scoop, $8 for two and $1.50 to upgrade to a waffle cone. The store will be open from 10am through midnight, daily.
Upcoming additions to Downtown Disney include Ballast Point brewery and Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes, plus whatever the company decides to do to replace the closed AMC Theaters, ESPN Zone, and Rainforest Cafe, now that it is not going ahead with plans to build a luxury hotel on that space.Tweet
