Campfire S’mores – salted tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, graham marshmallow cookie butter, dark chocolate squares
It’s also known as ‘Julia S’more-gan’ after our hero, architect Julia Morgan. She was the first woman to be admitted into the architecture program at l’Ecole nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and the first woman architect licensed in California. She designed more than 700 buildings in California during her prolific career including institutions serving women and is best known for her epic work on Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California.
Balsamic Fig & Mascarpone – Italian mascarpone ice cream, balsamic glazed figs
This flavor, also known as ‘Eric Owen Moss-carpone,’ was named in honor of Eric Owen Moss, a California native. He practices architecture with his eponymously named LA-based firm founded in 1973. Throughout his career, Moss has worked to revitalize a once defunct industrial tract in Culver City, California, which is also the location of the flagship Coolhaus storefront. The neighborhood appreciates it, Eric!
Chocolate Molten Cake – dark chocolate ice cream, chewy cake pieces, fudge frosting swirl
Even though LA is known for starting dieting trends, we also have some of the best dessert spots in the country… and there’s something for everyone. Whether you prefer your chocolate cake super sophisticated or as an old school fat slice, this ice cream will be sure to knock your socks off.
Bananas Foster – banana ice cream, rum, dulce de leche swirl
Upon a visit to one of the all-time great restaurants in New Orleans, and the country, Commander’s Palace, we became inspired to turn their Bananas Fosters dessert, which was originally created there, into an additive ice cream flavor. Besides our obsession with this dessert, we are huge fans of pioneering restaurateur and co-founder of Commander’s Palace, Ella Brennan. We were almost moved to tears when our Bananas Foster pint was given a shout out in the ‘Commanding the Table’ documentary about her!
Dirty Mint Chip – fresh mint leaf ice cream, brown sugar, dark chocolate chips
This flavor was inspired by one of our all-time favorites, Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller. He was an American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor, and futurist. Fuller published more than 30 books, coining or popularizing terms such as “Spaceship Earth,” ephemeralization, and synergetic. His out of the box, multi-disciplinary thinking makes us think something like ice cream and architecture ARE meant to be together, after all.
Sundae Funday – tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate hazelnut butter, roasted almonds
There’s something about that epic sundae that sums up all good things in life. We’ve brought you our very favorite version: the best vanilla ice cream there is (humblebrag) featuring BOTH Tahitian & Madagascar vanillas, a ‘haus’-made chocolate hazelnut butter swirl, and roasted and toasted salted almonds. Put a cherry on it, if you like.
Salted Caramel – caramel ice cream, maldon sea salt
This flavor was created for renowned landscape architect, Mia Lehrer (so we call it a ‘Cara-Mia Lehrer’). Some of her notable work includes the Annenberg Community Beach House, Natural History Museum of LA County gardens, and Vista Hermosa Park, which was the first new public park in downtown Los Angeles in 100 years. She has been a key player in the Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan for nearly 20 years. On June 25, 2014 the president appointed her to serve a four year term on the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts. You go, Mia!
Milkshake & Fries
“Fast Food,” the original name for this flavor, was inspired by those who have had the genius ide to dip their french fry in their milkshake. We sought to evoke this magical, ultimate sweet and savory moment in this ice cream flavor…and it was so popular in our shops, that we brought it to pint form. While we recognize “Fast Food” can mean different things to different folks, the “Fast Food” we are referring to means today’s generation of fresh, sustainably sourced, but affordable casual eating menus and environments (some of which feature our products!).
Buttered French Toast
At Coolhaus, we know life is too short to wait around for dessert hour, so what’s best is to hedge your bets and fuse breakfast favorites with dessert! This flavor is our twist on a widely-loved favorite, Butter Pecan – but this creation is so much more. You’ll start craving it the moment you’re awake.
Street Cart Churro Dough
This flavor is inspired by some of our favorite street food eating adventures in LA. If you’ve ever hit up the Churros Truck late night, you know that nothing hits the spot like a warm, cinnamon sugar-y churro dipped in chocolate or whipped butter. That’s why we’ve crammed both of those decadent sides into this re-imagined pint and swirled in chewy churro dough to make our cold version of this caliente dessert!
It’s true that this ice cream began its life as a Halloween flavor… but it was too good, too perfectly sweet and salty, to limit its run. So, we present the ultimate chocolate-y peanut butter goodness, not trick all treat!
Best of Both Worlds Vanilla
Guys, there is NO shame in vanilla. We LOVE vanilla, because along with our craziest flavors, we love the classics done to their best. Ours, featuring BOTH Tahitian and Madagascar beans, is [humble brag] the best we’ve ever had. It’s sophisticated, bright, scrumptuous, and will make you crave eating it everyday. And there’s no shame in that!
What beats the taste and smell of the freshest California-grown strawberries you can find? We’re stumped. We created this flavor for one of our biggest partnership activations and took two trucks on a national tour to promote it! Now, for those who weren’t fortunate enough to partake then, we bring you a decadent mascarpone cream cheese ice cream with that swirl of fruit and graham crust that is at once a trip to the farmers market and a bite of your favorite cheesecake.
There sometimes is no better indulgence than incredible, truly decadent chocolate ice cream. And, this one is silky smooth, one part rhythm and one part bass… it will definitely make you want to dance!
