Seattle's industry isn't big at all. Probably should've asked the whole state.

Come to think of it, I've never tried apple ice cream.

Seattle, not San Francisco. And while we're on the subject, those of us with webbed feet kinda rankle when outsiders confuse the local culture with the California transplants who took over. It may very well be accurate, but it's kinda depressing to see your identity swept away.

A Ben & Jerry ice cream requires at least three flavors, the base ice cream and at least two add ins. So a base of vanilla with chocolate covered coffee bean bits and caramel ribbons could be labeled The Seattle Special and marketed across the nation as breakfast ice cream.

Damn, that sorta works. Has to be mini M&M's.

Depression and hipsterism together? Heck; let's add distillation too: "Fair-Trade Vodak".

Not quite sure what it would taste like, though.

Have you ever seen licorice ice cream? It's navy gray and tastes like licorice ice cream.

I think it would be depressing enough and unpleasant enough to be the perfect base for hipster ice cream. Maybe they could put in bits of those English licorices with sprinkles on them, or tiny licorice pipes with the red sprinkles to represent the tobacco flames.

How about licorice pipes and candy unfiltered cigarettes? Hipster through and through.

I'd actually be interested in something reminiscent of pine trees. A maple syrup-based rich vanilla with juniper flavors to evoke the greenness of the Puget Sound area, perhaps?

They already have Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz, so they don't need another coffee flavor.
