Pastry Chef, Chef Cynthia Wong, 6x James Beard recipient + creator of the famous Not Fried Chicken® Ice Cream, went viral on Twitter a few weeks back with an image of the iconic treat. The Shade Room caught wind of the artistic genius and gave their roommates the inside "SCOOP" of the mobile ice cream parlor Life Raft Treats.


I found out the ice cream can be purchased here in Charleston, South Carolina; I immediately went to the local Whole Foods Market to buy the Not Fried Chicken® Ice Cream. It is also found on GoldBelly, Fresh Direct, and online at Life Raft Treats for local pickup. These are the main locations where to purchase the Not Fried Chicken®, but you can also catch them at local restaurants from time to time.



If you think the Not Fried Chicken® Ice Cream is mind-blowing, Chef Wong has created several other specialty ice cream treats that depict a strawberry, peach, a cherry, an Easter egg, a meat sandwich, a ham, a full Thanksgiving plate, cheese, tacos, and a full-sized turkey to name a few. The ice cream parlor definitely has my attention with the continued creativity. I have never seen anything like it.


Yesterday, I went to go pick up my order for Easter, and I was able to speak with the guy who was running the mobile parlor. I told him if I ever got the opportunity to meet the amazing Chef Cynthia Wong, I would tell her she is the best to do it and all of her creations should be archived somehow, like in a museum of ice cream.

 

I am a Visual Artist! I love to see art in various forms, such as ice cream that resembles the foods we eat. Please take a look at some of my FAVORITE ice cream delights Life Raft Treats have created thus far.

THANKSGIVING PLATE

  • 2 Not Fried Turkey culets: butter pecan ice cream with Not Fried coating

  • Green Bean Casserole: chocolate cake + peanut butter ice cream. The green beans are made of a chocolate cookie. The fried onions are made of caramelized white chocolate.

  • Mashed Potatoes: pumpkin cake + marshmallow ice cream + caramel "gravy" + white chocolate "butter pat."

  • Dressing: creme fraiche cake + crema ice cream + pink grapefruit marmalade + brioche crispies + white chocolate "herbs."

  • Cranberry Sauce: gingerbread +mable cheesecake ice cream + orange-vanilla cranberry compote

OMG! That's a lot of ingredients of pure goodness! I may have passed out from a sugar overload... If I had the opportunity to buy this plate of pure perfection.




FULL TURKEY "WONGDUKEN"

EASTER TREATS TASTE SO SWEET



CHOCO PB EASTER EGG

ICE CREAM SANDWICH

STRAWBERRIES


 

Life Raft Treats is becoming more popular by the minute. They literally sell out of everything within minutes of opening for purchase. It's a beautiful thing. I hate I didn't get the opportunity to indulge in their previous creations, as I learned of them a month ago.

Now, I will keep my eyes out for anything they make in the future.

Also, what I love MOST is the bizness LOVES all its patrons that continue to support them.

We live in a world that isn't always KIND. I can appreciate biznesses that treat every person with dignity + respect.




 

All ice cream listed above is no longer available for purchase except for the classic Not Fried Chicken® bar. It's unfortunate, but not to worry. They are designing something NEW as we speak, so be sure to follow their social media pages and subscribe to their newsletter at liferafttreats.com to receive notifications about their latest treats.
