St Patrick's Day Ice Cream & Venice, CA

HAPPY ST PATTY'S DAY! Let's celebrate with a wee bit o'ice cream! 

Salt and Straw features many different unique flavors that you won't find in most ice cream shops.

Monthly, they rotate seasonal flavors relating to the season or a holiday! For instance, see the weirdest flavors we tried last November:

Salt and Straw November Flavors

For March, they have some of the best I've ever tried!

I really liked the Chocolate Caramel Potato Chip Cupcake, which had salty, chocolatey, caramel goodness but the real winner here was the classic: Pots of Gold and Rainbows, which has come back every March since 2013.

Mixed with chunks of lucky charms, ice cream makers spend over 600 hours this month separating out the Lucky Charms marshmallows from the cereal to create this fabulous edition. They then seep the cereal in cream for the ice cream base and the marshmallows transform into perfect frozen gooey nuggets that are blended into the cereal goodness.

Stop everything that you're doing and get to the nearest Salt and Straw!

The Venice Sign

The Venice Chamber has been in the holiday spirit, adding elements to the iconic VENICE sign at Pacific St and Windward Ave! The Venice Sign Committee is responsible for the maintenance of the sign and started the Adopt-a-Bulb program.

At Christmas, there were red and green bulbs, for Valentine's Day they added a heart with purple lights. See more holidays on their website, Venice SIgn Committee. For St Patrick's Day they add the "O" and green lights! So cute!

Hope you enjoy your St Patrick's day! :)
