Salt & Straw celebrates Pride Festival with special flavors
Salt & Straw will celebrate Portland's Pride Festival by bringing back the limited edition Skittles Rainbow Sherbet this weekend.
In support of the LBGTQ+ Pride Celebrations, the kitchen team carefully hand sorted hundreds of pounds of Skittles candy to separate them by color, then melt down and church each color into a distinctly flavored sherbet with milk and cream. Once each color has been spun individually, they layer them all together to reunite the rainbow in every batch.
The special flavor is available at scoop shops in Portland and Lake Oswego June 14 through 16 only.
