August Flavor of the Month – Salted Caramel
Hello lovely people and welcome to August. The last month of Summer and one of our personal favorites. The beginning of a new month also marks the arrival of a new flavor for the month. This month sees the return for the second-time ever of Salted Caramel. Our take on, what has become a modern classic. Our Salted Caramel flavor is made from Coconut Cream, Sea Salt and Date. That’s it.
The dates is what gives this flavor that caramel flavor and then a hint of sea salt gives it that perfect “salted edge”. If you love salted caramel this is the perfect flavor for you.
Did you know…
Did you know that Salted Caramel was invested in 1977 by a French pastry chef Henri Le Roux in the form of salted butter caramel with crushed nuts using a Breton demi-sel butter. By the 2000 high end chefs started adding bits of salt to caramel and chocolate dishes. By 2008 the flavor had hit the mass market and the rest, as they say is history.
What makes our Salted Caramel Unique
“What makes our Salted Caramel Unique” we hear you say. Well, believe it or not it actually doesn’t contain any caramel.
‘Wait, what, no Caramel?”
Yep, that’s right. Our Salted Caramel contains no caramel. Sticking to our philosophy and ice cream mantra of “plant -based, vegan, using minimal ingredients and using only natural fruit sugars”, this flavor actually originated from our Salted Date Flavor. We found that turning down the saltiness, using coconut cream instead of coconut milk, and added more dates turned this flavor into the perfect Salted Caramel flavor.
