Halifax – The Fog Company has opened on the Halifax Waterfront serving up cones featuring swirls of soft-serve ice cream topped with imaginative toppings, from candied sea glass to white chocolate mermaid tails.

Regionally inspired fog cones include “Seas the Day” with brown butter crumble, cotton candy sprinkles, candy sea glass, “fog” (a form of spun sugar or candy floss); and “Gimme S’more,” served upside down with fudge sauce, graham crackers, toasted meringue and fog.

Cori Osborne, executive pastry chef for parent company Freehand Hospitality, developed The Fog Company’s menu. Osborne has more than 10 years of experience in some of Canada’s top restaurants including Canoe and Alo, and she has spent the last 18 months overseeing pastry and dessert programs at restaurants such as Drift and Café Lunette.

“At Fog, our goal is to have fun and create over-the-top concoctions without sacrificing quality, flavour, or texture,” Osborne said. “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 scoops traditionally churned ice cream, featuring flavours like cinnamon bun, pecan butter tart ripple, cherry chip, and several vegan sorbets in flavours like spiced dark chocolate and toasted coconut. Also on the menu are doughnuts, cookies, sweet-zas and ice cream sandwiches.

The shop is an immersive space featuring soft pastels, colourful pipes and valves, and brass and gold metal finishes.
