Tyler, the Creator collaborated with Ohio-based Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and created his own ice cream flavor called Snowflake.
What We Know:
- According to a press release, the two-colored ice cream features “cool peppermint on the ivory side, warm spearmint on the green side, with buttery white chocolate melted throughout, white chocolate flakes for some crunch, and a little sea salt to bring the flavor and scent forward.”
- According to FADER, the flavor was inspired by his hate for macadamia nuts. “For as long as I can remember, mint ice cream seemed to always come with every chocolate chip but white,” Tyler wrote in a statement. “I finally got the two away from their clingy friends and set up a play date for my mouth.”
- Tyler and Jeni’s founder, Jeni Britton Bauer, met in 2017 and bonded over their “shared love for people, color, scent, and flavor.”
- The ice cream will be sold as a packaged deal which will include a T-shirt by Golf Wang along with the ice cream. It will be available for purchase on July 6 through Tyler’s GOLF and Jeni’s websites. It will also be sold that day at Tyler’s GOLF store in Los Angeles and will be available for purchase at Jeni’s locations on July 8.
Tyler isn’t the only one who has a limited edition ice cream to his name. Earlier we reported that the “Queen of bounce,” Big Freedia partnered up with Ben & Jerry’s to create a flavor called “Booty Bouncing Beignets.”
