You read that right, Salt & Straw, an ice cream company based out of Portland, Oregon, has developed an ice cream flavor that tastes like your Thanksgiving Dinner. This season, Salt & Straw is featuring a "Thanksgiving Dinner of Ice Cream" in each of their stores.
From starting up as a stand-alone ice cream stand, Salt & Straw has grown its shops to Los Angeles and San Fransisco. While it's only on the West Coast for now, let's cross our fingers it makes its way to Texas soon. Until then, you can always join their pint of the month club or even buy the November seasonal pints online from their store.
1. Sweet Potato Casserole with Maple Pecans
This ice cream begins with roasted sweet potatoes mashed with cream and sugar. Oregon pecans are mixed with maple syrup and then hand-churned ribbons of marshmallow fluff are swirled into the ice cream, making it over-the-top good.
2. Buttered Mashed Potatoes & Gravy
Savory and salty, this ice cream starts off with real potato starch boiled down until it turns sweet and sticky. Two gravy fudges are added in, adding in flavors of chocolate and coffee to flavorful mashed potato ice cream.
3. Apple Cranberry Stuffing
A stuffing of challah, brown sugar, dried apples and cranberries are folded into celery soda flavored ice cream. Caramelized cranberry jelly finishes it off.
4. Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey
To make this ice cream, turkey stock is mixed with sugar, spices and onions, and cooked down until a caramel forms.
Furthermore, turkey skin is roasted and candied then folded into the salted caramel turkey ice cream.

End your Thanksgiving meal with this goat cheese ice cream swirled with mashed pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.
