Salt & Straw

Rad Readers Series 2021

from May 28 to June 29

Salt & Straw has partnered with Scholastic on an exciting, limited-time-only menu called Rad Readers. Pulling inspiration from five books, this menu brings the magic of reading to life with imaginative flavors. Rad Readers hopes to encourage summer reading with this collection of scoops that tell stories.

To thank educators for their relentless work in engaging and inspiring students in what has been an incredibly disruptive year, Salt & Straw's giving teachers a free scoop of ice cream at all of our shops on Saturday May 29th - Monday May 31st. Teachers must show a valid school ID at time of order. Offer is valid for a complimentary single scoop in a cup or sugar cone.

Now, on to the flavors!

Goosebumps: Monster Blood is Back!  (Author: R.L. Stine)

Salt & Straw considers themselves pretty fearless kitchen explorers. For this flavor, they've pulled all sorts of ingredients from their pantry, a little of this, some of that. Laying it all out on the table, they noticed something peculiar. Amongst their ingredients, they found a mysterious blue can. “What could be in there?” they wondered. Inside was a bright green goo, shimmering in the light. Looking at it, they decided to go where no chef has gone before. No joke. Streaks of citrusy, shiny green goo suspend hunks of deep red strawberry bark. Each bite will hit you with a surprising POP as it explodes in your mouth. Warning: If you hear strange gurgling noises coming from your pint… RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

Geronimo Stilton & The Frosted Frozen Feast (Author: Elisabetta Dami)

Dear ole’ Gerrykins.. I mean, Geronimo. Sit back and take it cheesy while Salt & Straw treats you to the most marve-mousely magnificent ice cream you could ever imagine. Salted caramel takes on an even saltier side when paired with parmesan-steeped cream, made rich with mascarpone cheesecake and crumbles of buttery cracker crust for one fabumouse flavor. For the love of cheese, this one is so GOUDA, even your neighborhood cat will love it!

Smile: Words & Pictures  (Author: Raina Telgemeier)

Ever wondered what your very own graphic novel would look like… or even taste like? Inspired by the sketch table of Raina Telgemeier, author of intensely relatable graphic novels Smile and Guts, Salt & Straw gathered everything to craft your own story—paper, pencil, and eraser—before reimagining them into ice cream. Yellow and pink almond-infused sponge cake and stracciatella “pencil shavings” are strewn about their favorite sketchpad, trusty vanilla ice cream. For all of their budding illustrator and storyteller friends out there, they say, ‘Draw your spoons and scoop your own flavor story!’

Amulet: Fruit of the Gadoba Tree  (Author: Kazu Kibuishi)

Perched high upon a perilous mountaintop reside the last of the Gadoba trees. The fruit of this tree is powerful: one in every 100 can save your life, while the other 99 will take it away. Salt & Straw plucked some their selves for their magical elixir. Ever shrouded in mystery, this flavor’s quest begins with capturing the otherworldly flavors of cacao nibs by steeping them in sweet cream, then culminates with dollops of our kitchen’s real life concoction of the mysterious, juicy “Gadoba” fruit.

Contains Milk, Tree Nuts (Lychees)

Twins: A Matching Pear w/ Twinnamon Swirl (Author: Varian Johnson)

Twins means best friends forever, right? Just how the inseparable bond between twins Maureen and Francine Carter is tested when they enter middle school, Salt & Straw paired up a dynamic combination of two decidedly unique flavors, interweaving the nuances of individuality and sisterly love. In Salt & Straw's own tale of the twins, they weave whips of our housemade cinnamon-laced cream cheese throughout a sweet and fragrant pear ice cream.
