If you look at the picture for this post, you may notice a flavor called “beer and pretzels” – that’s right folks, we’ve gone full Wisconsin with this ice cream shop. Purple Door Ice Cream is a Milwaukee classic – and you can find it in person in the 5th Ward or in your local grocery store ice cream section (if you live around these areas and have an awesome enough grocery store).
Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the breadth of flavors. If you go into this shop and order plain chocolate ice cream (which is available), then I’m sorry, I have nothing left to say to you. You’re going to find ice cream flavors you can’t find anywhere else, like beer and pretzels, balsamic strawberry, and garlic (yes, garlic). If you’re not so daring, though, that’s ok – they still have unique but sweet ice creams like carrot cake, speculoos, and honey vanilla.
Purple Door has a constant revolving door of flavors and new ones are added all the time – I am sad that I haven’t gone more often. Just perusing their flavors, looking for good examples for this post made it so obvious that I have to step my game up.
