The Fog Company from Freehand Hospitality says the forecast is calling for fog! The new premium quality ice cream shop just opened on the Halifax Waterfront at Queen’s Marque, 108-1709 Lower Water Street.
The Fog Company serves up eye-catching creations with what they say is a “distinct Fog Company look.” Their cones feature swirls of soft serve topped with imaginative toppings from candied sea glass to white chocolate mermaid tails, each with “spun-to-order fog.” The “fog” is actually cotton candy.
The fog references its place on the edge of the Halifax Waterfront. Locally inspired fog cones include Seas the Day with brown butter crumble, cotton candy sprinkles, candy sea glass and fog. Their Gimmie S’more is served upside down with fudge sauce, graham crackers, toasted meringue and fog.
Cori Osborne is Executive Pastry Chef for Freehand Hospitality and developed The Fog Company’s menu. She has worked in some of Canada’s top restaurants and for the last 18 months has been overseeing pastry and desserts in Freehand Hospitality’s Halifax restaurants Drift and Café Lunette.
“At Fog, our goal is to have fun and create over-the-top concoctions without sacrificing quality, flavour, or texture,” says Chef Cori. “We use real vanilla and cocoa paste and make as much of our product as possible in-house so we can ensure everything tastes just as good as it looks, if not better.
The Fog Company also offers scooped traditionally churned ice cream. Flavours include cinnamon bun, pecan butter tart ripple, cherry chip and several vegan sorbets in flavours like spiced dark chocolate and toasted coconut. Doughnuts, cookies, sweet-zas and ice cream sandwiches are available.
The Fog Company says it imagines their ice cream and premium sweets as an experience delivered through the lens of a fantasy municipal service dedicated to the creation and distribution of fog.
