Chocolate and vanilla are classic—they're fine. They're good. They're the classics for a reason. But in our book, the funkier, the better. Which is why you see us sandwiching a genius sorbet between salty, olive-oily slabs of focaccia, packing our ice cream full of chunks, and infusing the custard bases with sweet corn and black pepper, or oatmeal, or mint and basil. Join us (and clink your cone or ice pop against your bud's in celebration of summer) by making one of these 15 frozen treats:
