Artisanal ice creams is a tough but booming industry in New York City (a new one just popped up on Friday in the LES). Perhaps that is why Morgenstern’s has resorted to dubbing the next 5 days “Kanye West Ice Cream Week” in order to distinguish itself from the ever-growing crowd.
Yeeezus’ birthday is Monday, June 8th. The idea behind the promotion is that West, who always has some fashion-related venture, were to design his own ice cream flavors, this is the menu he might create. The names are all West-themed, using puns based off of musician’s lyrics and invoking memes involving him and his famous-for-being-famous wife. Here’s the menu below:
I Am a God Ice Cream Croissantwich ($7): Vanilla ice-cream sandwich inside a custom-made Arcade Bakery croissant
Red October Raspberry (single $4.50, double $6.50): Raspberry sorbet, in honor of Yeezy’s favorite frozen treat and his cultish Air Yeezy 2 sneakers
Kim Kardashian Thirst Trap Sundae ($8.50): Two scoops of Sesame Caramel Ice Cream with Champagne Caramel Sauce and whipped cream
Bowl Digger ($8.50): Two scoops of chocolate ice cream with whipped cream, fudge, and a cherry
All Day Vanilla Ice Cream Cake ($8 per slice): Vanilla cake, vanilla ice cream, vanilla frosting—a new classic that you’ll come back to “24-7, 365 days”
