If you’re looking for a way to celebrate National Mustard Day, why not pop open a limited-edition mustard-flavoured ice cream brought to you by Coolhaus Ice Cream and French’s Mustard? The ice cream was served at Coolhaus locations in Los Angeles and New York City and came with a pretzel cookie.
“As lovers of sweet-meets-savoury, pure ingredients, and unique creations, we are incredibly excited to be collaborating with French’s Mustard in creating this one-of-a-kind product,” stated Natasha Case, CEO and Founder of Coolhaus. “It’s been so fun to explore this classic condiment in a whole new way and create an unforgettable thoughtfully crafted ice cream flavour with an All-American taste.”
Now, the very idea of mixing mustard with ice cream might be a little shocking and potentially cringe-worthy, but early tasters have come back with the stellar review that the ice cream actually isn’t that bad. They describe the flavour as being first that of cotton candy and bubble gum that slowly builds into the familiar mustard tang after a few bites.
This isn’t the first time a condiment has inspired an ice cream flavour. There are mayonnaise and ketchup flavoured concoctions out there. And savoury items like bacon and turmeric also have their own ice creams. The initial shock of a bright yellow ice cream aside, the flavour may be one that is doable at the least.
If you had no way of getting to the California or New York locations where the ice cream was being offered, you can head over to the website for French’s parent company, McCormick, where they have posted a recipe that you can try at home. And if you’re wondering, this year’s National Mustard Day marked 115 years of mustard being used to add a tangy flavour to favourite foods.
