California’s Long Beach Creamery is introducing limited-edition cannabis-inspired ice creams in celebration of 4/20.
The Danks ice creams will be available in four flavors: Blue Dream, Pineapple Express, Granddaddy Purp and OG Kush Chip. While The Danks ice cream does not contain THC or CBD, it will contain the terpene profiles of the cannabis strain with some extra shop made mix-ins to accentuate the flavor.
For Long Beach Creamery founder Dina Amadril, creating The Danks is a passion project.
"I had this wild fear thought about a year ago,” Amadril said. “It felt like everyone was throwing CBD or THC into their food products and we were missing out. I talked myself down from the ledge by buying a few items, paying hella dollars and realizing this soda just tastes like soda - I was missing the flavor of the cannabis. Those amazing terpenes that give Blue Dream its blueberry undertones or the sweet tang of Pineapple Express. Why couldn't that terpene profile be an ice cream flavor? It can! And it's magic all on its own."
Pints of all four flavors and a freezer tote bag will be sold together for $60. For those who just want to give it a taste, there will be mini-scoop samplers for $7 in the shop on 4/20.
The Danks launch also showcases pint label designs from Long Beach artists. Corey Wolford, Jason Keam, Kate Maleki and Mike R. Baker were commissioned to design a Danks flavor label.
