Pickles have been enjoying a moment for many moments now. From pickle mozzarella sticks to bacon pickle fries and even pickle beers and pickle martinis, it seems like almost everything under the sun can — and will — be pickle-flavored.
There’s even soft-serve ice cream that tastes like those vinegar-soaked treats! Pickle-flavored ice cream is a genius creation on offer at the Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co., a spot in New York’s Upper West Side.
Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co. was created by Jacob Hadjigeorgis, the founder of Jacob’s Pickles and Maison Pickle. The fast-casual restaurant has dumplings, noodles, a pickle kiosk and yes, pickle-flavored soft-serve ice cream.
Check out a picture of the pale-green soft-serve treat, as posted on Twitter by @greenietravels:

The New York Times compared the dessert to “cucumber frozen yogurt,” which sounds refreshing!
