Combining our passions for Oregon and ice cream, Soda Pop PR was honored to work with Portland’s Salt & Straw on the recent announcement of their first Los Angeles scoop shop, set to open in Larchmont Village this August.
Known for inventive, gourmet ice cream flavors and a commitment to highlighting local ingredients, owner Kim Malek and head ice cream maker Tyler Malek have already begun partnering with farmers, producers, chefs, distillers, brewers and butchers from Southern California to the Central Coast to create a fresh menu of ice creams that celebrate the region.
We can’t wait to try collaborative flavors like Santa Ynez Valley Walnut Oil, Stumptown Coffee & Compartes Love Nuts, Tomato Water & Ojai Olive Oil Sherbet and Black Olive Brittle & Goat Cheese.
Also, a customized Salt & Straw Ice Cream truck will be popping up around town this summer to scoop Salt & Straw favorites like Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, Almond Brittle with Salted Ganache, Freckled Woodblock Chocolate, Chocolate with Gooey Brownie and Double Fold Vanilla.
