ACL Paper Boat Report: Skull & Cakebones

By Mike Sutter | Fed Man Walking | 10.04.14
 The dish: The Screameo, an ice cream “cakewich” ($6
 The vendor: Skull & Cakebones (Weekend 1 only)
 The report: The team behind the Austin vegan bakery Skull & Cakebones has teamed with the Austin vegan ice cream specialist NadaMoo to create the “Screameo.” And for Weekend 1 only, the Screameo is part of the Hope Farmers Market collective at the Austin City Limits Festival. The Screameo is sweet brownie-style cake on the top and bottom, with dense and deceptively rich vanilla cold comfort in the middle, covered in tiny chocolate chips like it was dropped in Wonka’s sandbox. What makes this good festival food — besides the cool interplay of vanilla and chocolate and cake and ice cream — is that it’s slow to melt and comes away in clean bites. Psst. You still have chocolate in your teeth.
