PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

One of Portland's best ice cream shops is getting ready for Thanksgiving with some innovative new flavors while doing their part to help people in need. The creative people at Salt & Straw dreamed up five new flavors for the upcoming holiday. For every pint purchased from their Thanksgiving Series, they will donate another to Oregon Food Bank's Thanksgiving meals program.

The Thanksgiving flavors are available by the scoop or in pints at all Salt & Straw scoop shops during the month of November.

The flavors are as follows:

Sweet potato and candied pecans

Side Dish: The sweet and caramelized mess that takes up the largest corner of our Thanksgiving plates. Sweet potato ice cream, Vermont maple-infused marshmallow pillows and pralined pecans. These pecans have a buttery sweetness with slight bitterness, cutting the starchy potatoes with precision.
 
Apple cranberry stuffing

Side Dish: An intriguing balance of aromatic fruitiness. The ice cream base is sweetened with a locally made celery soda, then patched with bread pudding. Each pudding dollop delivers an exciting peppery, cranberry-y and apple-y take on the traditional Thanksgiving stuffing.
 
Salted caramel Thanksgiving turkey

Main Course: A head rush of sweet and salty with a pinch of insanity. All the flavors of a roasted turkey, its juices and the caramelized onions underneath are packed into a turkey fat caramel ice cream with fried turkey skin brittle.
 
Pumpkin custard and spiced chevre

Dessert: Pumpkin cheesecake ice cream with an unexpected twist of maturity. Like scooping out the middle of a pumpkin pie and throwing it straight into a spicy, goaty, salty cheesecake ice cream. Guaranteed to rival any ice cream in yum-factor.
 
Mincemeat pie

After Dinner Treat: A frozen take on a body-warming English holiday treat. The heady punch of brandy soaked fruits with an aggressively spiced ice cream base. The perfect flavor to take a pint home and camp in front of the fire for this holiday season.

The Thanksgiving flavors are available by the scoop or in pints at all Salt & Straw scoop shops during the month of November. Pints can also be purchased through Salt & Straw's website http://www.saltandstraw.com.
