The NYC-based chain, Shake Shack, has a number of "concrete" flavors as a tribute to the neighborhoods that they are in. The Theater District location has Broadway themed ones such as Pretzel! The Concrete, Jelly's Last Donut and Great White Way flavors. And proceeds from some of the concretes help fund local programs in the community. The Brooklyn location has Fudge-eddaboutit. The new Boston location has a Lobstah Shell concrete with pieces of lobster tail pastry from the North End in it.
Or perhaps City Bakery can slice one of their salty Pretzel Croissants in half, pair it up with some Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory or Ample Hills ice cream and make an ice cream sandwich with it!
I'd love to see an ice cream with pieces of Sfogliatelle Italian pastry in it!
For my home region of Central NY, I think a chocolate-vanilla swirl ice cream with pieces of half moon cookies in it would be divine!
OOH, OOH, Turkey Joint ice cream!!!! What are Turkey Joints, you ask? A chocolate and brazil nut "bone marrow" center that is enrobed in a shiny and crunchy sugar "bone" outer shell.
And maybe even a dark chocolate ice cream with a coconut custard pusty mashed up in it for an "Almond Joy" of sorts!
