Coming soon: ice cream between those fonuts

Fōnuts, the purveyors of unfried, gluten-free and vegan donuts is introducing a new player to their summer menu: fōnut ice cream sandwiches. Owners four-star pastry chef Waylynn Lucas and her partner, voice actor Nancy Truman, have come up with some modern and nostalgic flavor combinations for their new sandwiches, featuring seasonal ingredients and all house-made ice creams.

Some of the sandwich flavors include the Chocolate fōnut with eucalyptus ice cream, strawberry buttermilk fōnut with fresh mint ice cream, vegan coconut passion fruit fōnut with vegan coconut sorbet, and the blueberry Earl Grey fōnut with lemon lavender sorbet. The shop plans to offer an ever-changing selection of seasonal ice cream flavors to sandwich between your favorite fōnuts.

The ice cream sandwiches will launch at the Fōnuts and Grilled Cheese Truck ice cream party hosted by Chef Lucas and Truman happening June 30 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Fōnuts.
