Ta-da! The Ruckus (4144 N. Oakland Ave.) has just come out with its newest flavor of soft-serve ice cream ‒ Black Madagascar vanilla.
But it’s the charcoal-like color that makes it particularly eye-catching. The burger joint (a sister of the Colectivo cafes) uses natural ash from charred coconuts to give the ice cream ‒ made from milk supplied by Columbus, Wisconsin’s Sassy Cow Creamery ‒ its color. The photo shows the ice cream pumped inside a red cone. Not into it? The Ruckus also has natural-colored Madagascar vanilla, as well as Dutch chocolate and swirl.
What we have yet to determine is if this new flavor makes your tongue turn black.
