Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams made a splash recently with their Punk Stargonaut line, tying into the Eclipse that enchanted a nation. And now, they’re looking back in time for their latest lineup, Hot Summer Spins.

The brand is calling it “new-stolgia,” which is wicked twists on American favorites like cherry pie, snow cones, and more. Here’s what to know about the flavors, per PR for the brand:

Sparkling Cherry Pie: This flavor, per the name, evokes cherry pie - specifically sour cherry pie, with a big, spicy kick: sour cherry and Sichuan peppercorn ice cream. The flavor doesn’t stop there, though, it also includes cherry jam and shortbread crust.

Snow Cone Sorbet: Instead of your typical cherry/lemon/blue raspberry, Jeni’s is kicking it up a notch with a mix of brambleberry, watermelon and pink lemonade sorbet. I do not know what a brambleberry is, but I can’t wait to get stuck in it.

Burnt Orange Dreamsicle: Dreamsicle is the flavor of the summer (or one of them), but like the rest of Jeni’s lineup this has a little twist to it. It’s orange ice cream with vanilla custard – and burnt orange caramel sauce.

Tahini Oat Chocolate Cookies: You might not think of hot cookies straight out of the oven along with summer, but it is Americana. And this flavor includes milk chocolate and tahini ice creams, with an oat cookie crumble.

Double Dough: The one returning flavor on the menu, Double Dough is chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream swirled with brown sugar custard. It’s two, two, two cookies in one!

If you’d like to try these flavors, they’ll be in Jeni’s scoop-shops nationwide on June 6, or available online at the Jeni’s store. However, rewards members can snag the pints early on May 29, while supplies last. And once they’re gone, they’ll go from “new-stolgia” to “nostalgia.”
