This ice cream chain has a focus on unconventional flavors, including Spinach Cake with Chocolate Tahini Fudge and Charred Corn Curd, Cotija and Tajin, the latter of which is made with a mayo ice cream base. Salt & Straw has had its share of unique marketing pushes, such as an edible perfume that also serves as an ice cream topping. The brand's out-there flavors hit home with its customers, as the concept saw sales increase 26% last year.
