Strawberry Shortcake Parfait

A marriage of two opposites-attract ice creams: subtly tart Strawberry Buttermilk and decadently sweet Gooey Butter Cake. Layered between real strawberry sauce and whipped cream. Fresh. Springy. A sundae kind of love.

Hello, strawberry season

Every year, we count down the days until Ohio strawberry season — when Strawberry Buttermilk is back in shops. Because for a few fleeting weeks, we get to enjoy Strawberry Buttermilk with Gooey Butter Cake: a long-running, secret-menu-esque pairing that tastes like a strawberry shortcake. 

This year, we decided to make things official with a parfait. Layers of real strawberry sauce and whipped cream elevate our favorite seasonal ice cream combo to a heavenly springtime confection. Bursting with freshness, lightness, and “holy moly, that’s so good”-ness. We can’t wait to share our Strawberry Shortcake Parfait in scoop shops nationwide, for a limited time.
