Last year, we told you about a bizarre-sounding turkey-flavored Thanksgiving ice cream that Portland-based dairy specialists Salt & Straw put out in time for Thanksgiving. Since then, the company has continued offering seasonal monthly flavor packs, even going so far as to create a Seasonal Pints Club.

This holiday season, Salt & Straw has decided to create five new seasonal flavors, including fruitcake and mincemeat pie. The company will send you five pints of the stuff for $65, plus shipping. All orders are sent packed in dry ice to ensure you don't end up with a puddle of cream and fruitcake bits.

Here's the full list of all five flavors: Bourbon Pecan Pie, Congressman Blumenauer’s Fruitcake, Mincemeat Pie, Peppermint Cocoa, and Tequila Spiked Eggnog. The company also created Butter Roasted Chestnut and Spiked Butterscotch Eggnog flavors, but they're only available at its Los Angeles storefront.

If you'd like to try these frozen holiday treats, you can order them here. They'll certainly make a statement at your Christmas dinner. Just make sure to order a few days in advance, to stay within the very strict order cutoff times.
