EEWasabi and ice cream may not sound like two things that should go to­gether, but keep an open mind; the iconic duo for the ages of choco­late and peanut but­ter prob­a­bly had its naysay­ers at first, too.

The key is the peach, whose sweetness tem­pers the spici­ness of the wasabi. Both fla­vors come to­gether in Liks’ char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally creamy lit­tle scoops of hap­pi­ness.

“Just enough heat to en­joy, and per­fectly bal­anced with sweet, sa­vory Colorado peaches,” said owner Jay Thomp­son of one of his fa­vorite ice cream con­coc­tions.

If you think about it, Liks’ Wasabi Peach ice cream is the per­fect anal­ogy for a Colorado sum­mer: hot, but oh-sosweet and en­joy­able.
