The flavor is called “Snowflake,” and will consist of cool peppermint, warm spearmint, a dash of sea salt, crunchy white chocolate flakes, and white chocolate melted within the scoops.

In a post, Tyler said, “For as long as I can remember, mint ice cream seemed to always come with every chocolate chip but white. I finally got the two away from their clingy friends and set up a play date for my mouth.”

The pint container is decorated with a minty green color and has a flower covering the front, which is synonymous with Tyler’s Golf le Fleur branding and Flower Boy album.

While rappers and food haven’t always been synonymous, we’re starting to see a trend here, as just last month, Travis Scott had his own exclusive food drop, teaming up with Reese’s Puff’s cereal during Paris Fashion Week.

Those cereal boxes sold out in less than a minute.

If anyone can match that kind of hype, it’s Tyler, The Creator, so we’ll see just what kind of lines there will be at the Golf Wang and Jeni’s stores, and how quickly these sell out online.

Can Tyler, The Creator Invent The Next Viral Breakfast Item?

Whether you like him or not, Tyler, the Creator has established himself as a man of many talents, who also happens to love breakfast. Knowing that, can he create the next viral food item? Watch as he makes breakfast sushi, in an episode of his new Viceland series Nuts + Bolts. 

“Breakfast, it’s like my favorite meal,” Tyler said. “I’ll eat breakfast at 6:00 pm, 11:00 pm, whatever.”

To help him break into the breakfast scene, Tyler called on the help of Dominique Ansel, the creator of the iconic cronut, to conceptualize a never-before-seen breakfast item that could become, “the next big thing in breakfast.”

The episode kicks off with Tyler explaining that he knew,”nothing about the breakfast industry,” but had many questions.

“Was the waffle maker made first — or the waffle,” Tyler questioned aloud.

Nuts + Bolts, is a Viceland series dedicated to investigating the inner-workings all the things the Odd Future rapper finds interesting. At the end of each episode, Tyler makes something with all the knowledge he’s accumulated from the expert guests he meets.

After spending time with the Godfather of pastries, Dominique Ansel, Tyler decided to merge his newfound love for sushi and his unconditional affection for breakfast into a savory item that he served at Fred62.

“My tongue isn’t cultured. I eat sushi here and there — I don’t fuck with wasabi and all that weird shit.”

Still, Tyler expressed genuine interest — in a very Tyler way —  in wanting to create something innovative, yet had reservations due to the over saturation of the breakfast industry.

“I wish I had the confidence to say, ‘Yeah, I’ll come up with something cool,’ but I don’t know,” Tyler explained. “Everything seems taken.”

Tyler the Creator make breakfast sushi

Featuring a waffle bar rolled in powdered sugar, then topped with breakfast sausage and bacon, Tyler’s breakfast sushi roll is then wrapped with a fried strip of egg.

To incorporate an official sushi aesthetic, he created a wasabi green butter and a mint-infused syrup dipping sauce.

Nice job, T. After debuting this game-changing breakfast item you can compete with Taco Bell for the crown of breakfast supremacy.
