Stax Ice Cream’s Winter Treats Launch
The creations at Stax Ice Cream are rooted in the belief that ice cream is a treat to be enjoyed even during the coldest time of the year—and, after trying their new winter flavors, I’m convinced. Prepared for the holidays, this charming little ice cream shop offers respite amid the busy streets of Chinatown in the form of cozy Christmas decor and seasonal sweet treats.
Founders Sophie Gao and Vida Feng strive for quality with a personal touch. Their ice cream is handcrafted in small batches and every dessert is cleverly and delicately adorned. Stax isn’t your average ice cream shop, and certainly not the place to quickly grab a vanilla or chocolate waffle cone; aiming to deliver a unique experience, the ladies at Stax have developed and perfected innovative flavors that pull from both Western and Eastern palates, including fruity pebbles, jasmine milk tea, ube, cornflake bourbon, and more, all which can be made into one of their famous “Cremella” donut ice cream sandwiches. Because who needs a cone when you can eat your ice cream in a donut?
For this holiday season, the launch of Stax Ice Cream’s Winter Treats collection will debut a new line of treats for their Treats Bar in addition to their Holiday Mini Ice Cream Cakes featuring three new winter flavors: Peppermint Oreo Bark, Roasted Oolong Milk Tea, and Red Velvet & Cream. Not only are the ice cream flavors irresistible, but the cakes themselves are adorable—the Roasted Oolong cake is exquisitely decorated as a snowman with a candy corn nose, while the Red Velvet (my personal favorite) is a red-nosed reindeer with pretzel antlers. The Peppermint Oreo cake is a brand new take on one of their classics—a unicorn—but this time with a seasonally appropriate candy cane striped horn.
These sweet, winter-themed inventions will be available at Stax until the end of the month along with the spreading of holiday cheer and #sweetvibesonly.
